Big things happening in 2012
It’s 2012! In fact we’re rounding down the first week of January and all of us at Where The Girls Go are so excited about what we and DC has in store for YOU GUYS over the course of the next few months.
Just a few highlights of what’s to come:
Today (January 7) there are not one but two queer lady bands touring the east coast right now and they’re stopping by the infamous Phase 1 tonight. Allison Weiss and Mitten were both Phasefest favorites of the past year. You don’t want to miss this. Show starts at 8, and CiCi did a great Q&A with one miss Weiss to get you in the mood.
Two great things are happening NEXT Friday: 1) it’s Friday. The 13th! Quite possibly my favorite unofficial holiday. 2) It’s the District’s best queer girl dance party: She.Rex. It’s free and it consistently has the cutest girls, and the best music. Chief Ikes, be there or be lame.
But don’t waste all your energy on Friday because it’s a three-day weekend and the HRC is hosting their annual Her Party at Town and this year they’re doing something different. A DJ battle of some fantastic lesbian DJs including our lovely vANNIEty kills, (also Mimm, Rosie and Ladyface). The party goes from 7-11 and THEN We…Yes Where The Girls Go are hosting the Official After Party at DC9. We promise to bring you a queer dance party of apocalyptic proportions! Cuz this is supposed to be our last year on earth (again). And if that isn't enough to get you movin' --DJs Coach Veee and Junebullet, of She.rex, will be supplying the soundtrack. I'm so excited! Buy your tickets in advance and dance the night away with us.
Some punk rock ladies are holding it down on Tuesday the 24that the Dollhouse. WAXAHATCHEE, the DC-based Mary Christ, DEE & THE WARLOCKS, MICHAEL CANTOR of the Ambulars promise to put on a great show. Alex DB, singer of Mary Christ promises a diverse lineup and says Waxahatchee is “seriously so good.”
January 28 is the next DC Roller Derby bouts. If you haven’t been make it your new years resolution to come check out the Cherry Blossom Bombshells vs. Majority Whips at 4, followed by—my favorites—DC DemonCats vs.Scare Force One. $12 at the DC Armory.
Thanks to everyone who reads, “likes,” reposts, tweets, and comes out dancing with us. We appreciate each and every one of you! Happy 2012!
And don’t forget, join Where The Girls Go for the Official Her HRC after party. January 15 at DC9.
