Crimson Glow @ The Whistler | Oct. 25th
The next segment of CRIMSON GLOW…
Thursday, October 25, 2012
At The Whistler, 2421 N. Milwaukee Avenue
Claire Arctander and Latham Zearfoss are excited to re-introduce CRIMSON GLOW, a monthly DJ night featuring women-made music at the Whistler in Logan Square. CRIMSON GLOW creates a space for femminess and feminists who want to dance to and sing along with amazing woman-made music from all genres. CRIMSON GLOW is committed in equal measures to allowing engagement with the work of innovative musical pioneers and fostering dance party enjoyment.
In the spirit of auditory intimacy, beginning in October, each segment of CRIMSON GLOW will now open with a close listening party from 9-10pm. Every month, a radical, influential, creative Chicagoan will present an album by a sister musician which profoundly influenced her. We will play the featured album in its entirety. Then, from 10pm-close, we will spin the gamut of the finest women-made music around.
We will inaugurate this exciting new series with a presentation of Hole’s 1994 album, Live Through This. The album will be lovingly and performatively introduced by Claire and Latham, the organizers and hosts of Crimson Glow. Please be there at 9pm sharp for this segment of the evening. Afterwards, we will play a diverse array of women-made music across genres and timespans, ending in a dance party environment to round out the evening.
CRIMSON GLOW is inspired by queer dance parties like Chances Dances and feminist music movements like Riot Grrrl. We welcome women, girls and all other gender expressions. We use GENDER NEUTRAL bathroom signs.
