“[Toshi Reagon] has one of the sweetest, purest voices in contemporary music. None of that would matter iF she weren’t so good at what she does: writing and singing songs that move you with their honesty and passion.”–LA Weekly
When this time-honored celebration of lesbian and queer culture returns for its 14th year, curator Eleanor Savage invokes the history of women’s music as an inspirational and revolutionary force. Toshi Reagon, known for her genre-bending style that crosses innovative rock with soul-influenced, blues-tinged folk, promises to set you off in hand-clapping, foot-stomping delight. Terry Dame opens the evening with her mesmerizing five-piece ensemble, the Electric Junkyard Gamelan, performing all original compositions on instruments she designed and built. Friday’s performance will be ASL interpreted.
