Wanted to take a moment to point out some awesome shows that I have coming up. First up, Newspeak, my favorite punk-classical band is playing six shows this coming weekend. Inspired by letters from inmates of Attica pre the 1971 riots, Coming Together/Attica is one of Frederic Rzewski’s most powerful works. We are in collaboration with Rebecca Lazier, a choreographer who attended our Rzewski show 5 years ago and immediately had a vision for what she thought could be a truly powerful piece, and man, was she right. We’re finally performing all of Coming Together, which includes Attica, a truly gorgeous contrast to the raucousness of the first movement, and I’m so thrilled to be participating with these dancers!
Six shows all together over three nights at the Invisible Dog.
Thursday June 13th, 7pm, 9pm (TONIGHT!!!)
Friday June 14th, 7:30pm, 9:30pm
Saturday June 15th, 7:30pm, 9:30pm
The show will run for 50 minutes. Tickets are a $20 suggested donation, and seating is limited, so if you want a spot, buy a ticket! If you’re interested in reading more about the show, Coming Together/Attica has been receiving some fabulous press. Excuse the link dump:

Ain’t we some sexy bitchez??
Attention fans in DC area, Newspeak is coming at you June 21st at the Atlas Theater!! The website has the wrong repertoire listed, but we are premiering a bunch of new works by Corey Dargel, Ruby Fulton, and Randy Woolf in addition to some old favorites by David T. Little, Caleb Burhans, and, just because we’re really good at it, Rzewski’s Coming Together. Tickets are available HERE, and just because I still have your attention, it happens to be a Washington Post Critics Pick!
Still with me? Hang in there, the end is near.
John Zorn fans! I bring you tidings of great news, for lo and behold, I have been made a Daughter of Jerusalem! Mr. JZ is celebrating his 60th birthday this year, and what that means for me is a lot of traveling and singing some bad-ass-rock-your-face-off music. I have two shows coming up June 23rd and June 25th at 7:30pm in the Guggenheim Rotunda where the other Sapphic Sisters and I will premiere Earthspirit and Madrigals inside a James Turrell instillation! Tickets are available HERE.
