Sleater-Kinney

Sleater-Kinney appearing at this event

Like many a great band, Sleater-Kinney inhabited their time so thoroughly it took an extended hiatus to realize the extent of their legacy. In many respects, they were the defining American indie rock band of the second half of the '90s, the group that harnessed all the upheaval of the alt-rock explosion of the first part of the decade and channeled it into a vigorous mission statement. 2019 saw the departure of drummer Janet Weiss, so the riot grrrls now continue as a duo with Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein continuing their to fight for feminist issues.

Big Joanie

Big Joanie appearing at this event

Big Joanie are a black feminist punk band describing themselves as 'like The Ronettes filtered through 80s DIY and 90s riot grrrl, with a sprinkling of dashikis'. Based in London, Big Joanie formed in the summer of 2013 to play at First Timers (a gig where each band plays their set for the very first time) at the close of the year. The band also functioned as a space where its members (Stephanie Phillips, Chardine Taylor-Stone and Estella Adeyeri) could be completely themselves as black women, and within it discover their own power in creativity. Big Joanie are influenced by Nirvana, Riot Grrrl, Throwing Muses, X-Ray Spex, The Bags, My Bloody Valentine, The Ronettes, Darlene Love, Tina Turner, Jesus and the Mary Chain, Breeders, PJ Harvey, Shop Assistants.
