We’re hosting a party to kick off our International Women’s Day 2019 weekender celebrations in West Norwood. Returning to the Book & Record Bar after 2018’s success, we’re bringing back the good vibes to SE27 with a selection of DJs playing 100% women-fronted bangers. We pride ourselves on finding on providing a friendly, non -judgemental environment where everyone is welcome!

DJ Line up
Emma Jackson (Kenickie) will be playing music from The Supremes to The Slits to Solange and other stuff that may or may not start with an S.
Kenickie, fronted by BBC 6 Music Presenter Lauren Laverne, were credited as having inspired a wave of mainstream female guitar bands that emerged in the wake of their split. She is now a Sociology lecturer @ Goldsmiths and will forever remain an integeral part of the Britpop & Riot Girrl band history. We salute you Emma and can’t wait to have you on the decks!
Max Tundra aka Ben Jacobs is a London-based musician, producer and DJ. Most recently he produced, wrote and performed on Daphne & Celeste’s 2018 comeback album. A feminist and ally, he’ll be playing anything from folk (Joni Mitchell), modular synth (Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith), avant techno (Holly Herndon) and orchestral jazz (Laura Mvula).
Kath Gifford (Stereolab, Snowpony)
The Bechdel crew will also be sure to play your favourite female fronted bangers
The event is part of International Women’s Day 2019 and is not-for-profit, raising money for Bloody Good Period.
Bloody Good Period was started by Gabby Edlin, who decided something needed to be done to create a sustainable flow (pun intended) of menstrual products for those who can’t afford to buy them. What started as a whip-round on Facebook is now a growing enterprise with a vision to end period poverty. They supply 25 asylum seeker drop-in centres based in London and Leeds, and our ambition is to supply many more food banks and drop-in centres across the UK, so that everybody has the right to a bloody good period!
