Wild Women Performing Arts Festival and Fundraiser

Wild Women Performing Arts Festival and Fundraiser
Sat. Jan 17th
Club TA, Hongdae (15,000 won cover), 8:00PM onward

An eclectic mix of mostly female singers, songwriters and performers gathering to celebrate and to raise funds for the Korean Women's Associations United, an organization that supports women's human rights in Korea.

The night starts at 8pm with singer songwriters and poets. From 9pm, some of Seoul's most exciting bands take to the stage, including: Trampauline, Korean "heart-knocking electronica...with an acoustic spirit"; The Literallies, a Texas/Seoul combo with unique instrumentation like "a tandem bike with wobbly handlebars"; Bridget Martin and The Puppycats, led by a folk-punk troubadour with two successful international tours under her belt; and Juck Juck Haeseo Grunge, noisy and talented grunge rockers described by gig guides as "the best band in Korea at the moment." You will also be able to catch Eshe's internationally acclaimed belly dance performance, extracts from The Vagina Monologues, and other powerful performances.

There will be tarot readings available for donations as well as a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses!
A hot way to spend a winter night while contributing to gender equality in Korea.
