The Ladybug Music Festival presents Electric Ladyland

The Ladybug Festival and Gable Music Ventures presents four insanely talented female fronted bands downstairs in World Cafe Live at The Queen. We are excited to begin working with Sweet Leda, voted best MD/DC band this year by Tri State Indie. And we're super pleased to bring Lovebettie back after their amazing Rock Circus performance.

Noelle Picara

Noelle Picara releases her 2015 "My Own Frankenstein" to Vinyl with a party at World Cafe Live at the Queen.

Powerhouse up and coming rock trio Area 302 who are students of Noelle's at the Tatnall School will open the show, with Harrisburg rock act The Original Substance taking the stage right before Noelle with her trio, Joe Testa on bass, and Jeremy Hebbel on drums. Tons of special guests will be on stage with Noelle.

Sweet Leda

Powered by Julie Cymek’s sultry, commanding vocals and electrifying stage presence, Sweet Leda is taking the diverse mid-Atlantic music scene by storm as one of the most exciting and accomplished live acts on the rise. In fact, Lou Plaia (co-founder of Reverbnation) describes them as “the highlight of every festival they play.” With its rich blend of new school funk, psychedelic rock, soul and pop, Sweet Leda’s heartfelt original music can best be described as a female-fronted, soul-based, Zeppelin meets Chili Peppers!

Sweet Leda’s sophomore album Let It In captures the live and raw essence of what can only come from years of steady gigs, blood, sweat, and a few tears. To capture this essence, the band recorded all together in one room, tracking analog to 2” tape. What came out of the process is an intimate, in-your-face, edgy sound that exemplifies Sweet Leda live, at their best. Let It In was recorded and engineered at WrightWay in Baltimore by IRKO (Jay-Z, J Lo, Pitbull, Talib Kweli), mastered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Beck, Dr John), and produced by Sweet Leda’s very own “fifth Beatle,” Stephen Joseph Antonelli, who also produced and recorded the band’s first album, Need The Music.

Among the band’s many milestone achievements are: four Tri State Indie Music Awards, including the Groupie’s Choice Award in 2012; Best Emerging Artist DC/Baltimore in The Deli Magazine’s reader’s poll in 2011; sharing the stage with bands like Galactic, 311, and Jefferson Starship; performing at festivals with the likes of Citizen Cope, John Mayer, G Love, Cake, Live, Lake Street Dive, and Tedeschi Trucks; writing the end-credit title track for the feature film Lovely Molly by Ed Sanchez (Blair Witch Project); being hand-picked by Allman Bros. drummer Butch Trucks to open for his band at the Roots Rock Revival Masters Camp; and gracing the Miller Lite Stage at Summerfest 2013 in Milwaukee.

Sweet Leda regularly features tenor-saxophonist Ron Holloway who is listed in the Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz where veteran jazz critic Ira Gitler described Holloway as a “bear-down-hard-bopper who can blow authentic R&B and croon a ballad with warm, blue feeling.” Holloway has worked with the likes of Susan Tedeschi, Dizzy Gillespie, Gil Scott-Heron, Little Feat, and Root Boy Slim. He is currently a member of The Warren Haynes Band.


Do you Lovebettie?

Named “Pittsburgh’s Hottest Band” by Microsoft Windows, the Pittsburgh based pioneers of “Swagger Rock” attract fans from all walks of life with their neo-soul, rock-pop mash up. This genre-bending refreshing new take on modern rock has landed the band an onslaught of mass media exposure, major radio circulation, and a resounding buzz within the music industry.
