Womxn Fuck Shit Up DC
Womxn Fuck Shit Up DC, or WFSU DC, was born out of the LA-based collective Women Fuck Shit Up Fest, hosting annual festivals to celebrate, empower, and raise awareness to the music and art of womxn.
March 24, 2018 will mark the beginning of womxn fucking shit up on the east coast, through WFSU DC. Inspired by our west coast sisters, we've created a collective of kick ass womxn to organize our inaugural fest at Songbyrd Music House in Adams Morgan.
This is not just about rocking out (although we encourage all the rockage). Our mission is to bring together diverse people, ideas, identities, and works of art in order to foster the collective empowerment of all DC womxnkind.
This year's proceeds will benefit Casa Ruby, a local LGBTQ+ organization serving the D.C. area.
The CooLots are an original Rock/Soul band hailing from the Washington, DC area. A melting pot of different styles and talents, The CooLots come together to create feelings never before experienced. These creations embody sincerity, musicality, rock, funk, and soul, with influences, including: N.E.R.D, Me'Shell N'Degeocello, Sade, Staind, Erykah Badu, Kanye West and System of A Down. You can hear all these influences on The CooLots EP - their debut effort, released January 7th, 2014.
Michi is an award-winning International Folk Artist & Entertainer, currently ranked #1 on Spain's Folk Music Charts. Most recently, Michi & her band opened for Miley Cyrus at the Washington D.C. Pride Festival, marking her 7th consecutive Main Stage performance in the nation's capital. Listen to her new single "Mexico," now available on Apple Music & Spotify.
WASI blends the likes of The Clash, M.I.A. and CSS to create a reminiscent soundtrack to those So Cal nights of skinny dipping and angsty-garage punk shows. Jessie & Merilou produce music that speaks from the voices of those who are trying to be understood during their own tender time.
Julia takes the singer/songwriter genre and spins it into catchy indie-folk-pop with smart surprises and intriguing story-telling skills.
Infused with all the energy of alternative rock and punk, mixed with the intensely political nature of Rap, and topped off with the sensual feeling of R&B, Sheila is not afraid to branch out and explore the depths of each and every musical genre. Sheila is a collective of various genres and shared favorite artist including but not limited to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monáe and Paramore. Sheila is not just a band but a representation of the change that these three strong black women want to see in themselves as well as the world. What started as weekly FaceTime sessions between twin sisters Courtney and Rhea Tucker and Sha'Air Hawkins has quickly transcended into the now formed Sheila.
The Txlips Band
Moving crowds from blank stares to awe, this dynamic foursome is taking the rock scene by surprise by showing the world what girl power means. The Txlips Band is a dynamic group of 4 women whose mission is to represent for women of color in the music industry and inspire young girls and women everywhere to follow their dreams. These 4 women have contributed to pushing the boundaries on what the world says women can do and they continue to pursue their dreams and are determined to motivate people everywhere by being themselves. From the stages of Afropunk Brooklyn and Atlanta, to the stages of One Music Fest and their own tour, the Txlips Band has been a constant reminder that pussy is power!
More AM Than FM
More AM Than FM is a fiery rock 'n' roll trio from the DC metro area. Selena, Anjalee and Mel came together from the ashes of previous musical efforts and found their niche amongst the chaos of the rock 'n' roll cosmos. With a great fondness for the sound of the blues traveling through an overdriven amplifier, an affinity for the good old melancholy days of punk and a dissatisfaction for the common, More AM Than FM is here to resonate from every corner of the East Coast and beyond.
New album “Oh, the places I have been..." is now available on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play & more!
