Jessica Joyce is a singer-songwriter, audio engineer, and filmmaker in Bozeman. She is originally from Hardin, Montana. In her music, she draws inspiration from the past, by making films out of archival footage to accompany her compositions. Currently, she works as an audio engineer/av tech at the Rialto, and for Jereco Studios in Bozeman. She has also worked as the Assistant Music Director at KGLT Radio, assistant engineer at "Live from the Divide" radio show, and as tech crew at the Willson Auditorium. She graduated from Montana State University with a BA in Music Technology.
Cole Thorne, from Bozeman’s very own Cole & The Thornes, is a singer songwriter known for her unique style of island inspired soul music, and happy ukulele melodies. Her sultry voice and lyrics of empowerment will leave you with a smile on your face, reminding you that life is about the little things.
Foxy Blues, otherwise known as Leslie Fox-Humphreys, is a Singer/Songwriter coming off the road from hopping freight trains, and wandering around the back bone of the Americas collecting instruments and molding her performance into a one man band show. With rusted words and broken melodies, down the iron twist of time to bring you her own story through music long forgotten, Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you The Bandit Queen, Miss Foxy Blues.
Sarah Aswell is a stand-up comedian and humor writer whose work has appeared in places like The New Yorker, McSweeney’s, National Lampoon, MAD Magazine, Splitsider, Funny or Die, and Reductress. An alum of the Big Sky Comedy Festival, she was a runner-up for the Indy’s Best Comedian of 2017 and 2018, and Thrillist recently named her the Best Undiscovered Comic in Montana.
Even at a young age, people could tell Montana-based comedian Charley Macorn was funny. "He said he wants to be a girl," their mother would say through gritted teeth. "Isn't that hilarious?"
Since first stepping on stage, Charley has traveled across the country, performing comedy and teaching stand-up and improv skills to LGBTQ+ youth. An alumna of the inaugural Portland Queer Comedy Festival, Charley's writing credits include the all-ages queer-friendly comic book "Jill Trent, Science Sleuth" and an audio adventure for Big Finish's "Doctor Who" line.
B is a newcomer to the stand up comedy scene but no stranger to jokes - they wrote their college thesis on memes. When they're not writing or wrangling their one-eared cat, they enjoy roller skating, long walks on the beach, and listening to true crime podcasts.
Self-proclaimed undiscovered talent, Danielle Rovira began her performance career dazzling audiences as "Rat #2" in a 1999 ballet adaptation of Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker". Displaying affinities for syntax, sadness, science, and alliteration, she has since expanded her repertoire beyond rodential roles to include joke-telling as a means to stay afloat in the gutter of her own mind.
Danielle did not achieve her current level of success on her own: frustrations regarding failed relationships, unemployment, and society at large have contributed to her signature comedic style, hailed by 4 out of 5 psychologists as "great, if that's what works for you."
She lives in Bozeman, where she is employed as the second-best server at Montana Fish Company.
The event begins with a TFW (Trans/Femmes/Women) bike ride hosted by Alter Cycles at 4pm in front of the Rialto followed by A Bring Your Own Art show at 6pm open to all TFW in the Light Box Gallery. Comedy by local and regional comedians B. Bowman, Charley Macorn, Danielle Rovira, and Sarah Aswell will have us laughing out loud, followed by a collaborative performance from local songwriting favorites Foxy Blues, Cole Thorne, and Jessica Joyce.
