Funky Fems drop MENergy on Satellite Ballroom

March 28th, 2008 · No Comments · By



As a person who’s tried (and failed) to bring big names to town for benefit shows before, I know it can be a frustrating game. So many things have got to be in place, from schedules to promo, and the end result has got to be fun in addition to ‘awareness raising’ to come off.

That said, hats off to the folks putting together tonight’s Take Back the Night Benefit Dance Party at Satellite Ballroom. The party will be DJ’d by none other than Mr and Mrs Men, aka JD Sampson and Johanna Fateman of riot grrrl/dance punk band le Tigre. JD Sampson last blew thru town as part of Peaches’ mockcockrock ensemble, also at the Ballroom. it ruled. Tonite, expect feminist dancepunk-blasted beats, extreme and witty mashes/mixes, and most of all, DANCEPARTYMUSIC. They are here to make you dance, so that is what is going down.

Proceeds benefit Shelter for Help in Emergency (SHE) and the Sexual Assault Resource Agency (SARA) which provide counseling and shelter for victims of sexual violence in Charlottesville.

Doors at 9. $8-10 at the door. ENJOY.
