In light of the current political rhetoric that is putting women's rights at jeopardy, Bewitched Burlesque Sideshow co-owner Evie Delilah is helping to organize "Women Who Rock," a tribute to all the women who have succeeded in the rock 'n' roll industry over the years. Hula-hoopers, burlesque and belly dancers, and other performers will honor women such as Stevie Nicks, Tina Turner, and PJ Harvey, who are described by Delilah as strong and revolutionary women who stepped into a male-dominated genre of music.
The country is starting to move backward instead of forward, Delilah says, and the system isn't working anymore — it's hurting instead of helping. This show is meant to combat the political rhetoric by embracing and empowering women through a creative, tangible expression of feminism. The show will be hosted by Wednesday Westwood, and include two local musicians, Shannon Scally and Dylaina Young.
"Women Who Rock" will be held at Photo City Improv (543 Atlantic Avenue) on Friday, June 30. Doors at 9:30 p.m., show at 10:30 p.m. $7 cover charge, 21 and older. For more information, call 451-0047 or visit facebook.com/bewitchedburlesquesideshow.
