About Tia Nina:
Tia Nina is a feminist punk rock modern dance band. Iconic powerhouse trio J Van Stone (Leah Curran Moon), Sammy Rain (Ilana Silverstein) and Sticks (Lisi Stoessel) deliver an exciting, rock ‘n roll meltdown of a show. Tia Nina challenges rock performance by mocking the showy, phallic panache of lead guitarists, the aggressive boastful struts of front men, and the sweaty, reckless abandon of great drummers through a lens that exposes how masculine activity, feminine passivity and compulsory heterosexuality are reproduced in rock ‘n roll. They shatter expectations and surprise audiences with a gritty, physical, surreal experience that challenges taken-for-granted assumptions about rock performance, modern dance, gender and popular culture. Through a witty social critique of contemporary gender relations, the band delivers a celebration and a deconstruction of rock ‘n roll.
About DJ Amsies:
Born, raised and based in Baltimore, Amy Reid is an active musician producing and performing as 1/2 of Chiffon as well as solo, djing as DJ Amsies, and participating in other cosmic performances. Through envisioning and manifesting GRL PWR parties, Reid works towards celebrating underground self-identifying female, trans, genderqueer, and non-binary musicians, DJs, producers and dancers.
About DJ TrillNatured:
"Jessica Hyman, alternately known as TrillNatured and sometimes DJ Jess, has been spinning at events such as Queer-ology and shows curated by Electric Llama all year, making herself known thanks to versatile, R&B-influenced house and club mixes with a sort of intergalactic jazz edge. Her sets often transition parties from the chilling-out-before-a-place-gets-packed vibes to frenetic, crowded dancing, when personal space no longer exists and no longer matters. If you’ve not gotten out to the club to check her out, start with her Melt Mix full of float-y mash-ups and tricky club remixes." – Baltimore City Paper
