FORCED INTO FEMININITY
Often Imitated Never Duplicated, Forced into Femininity is the long time eco-terror anti-performance of Jill Lloyd Flanagan.
Born in USSR in the early 1980’s, Debbie discovered Western pop music and Soviet new wave first through her father. Who at the time as a navy officer, had access to smuggled media and an underground distribution network. This and the time spent in San Francisco’s punk / noise scene (from 2000-2012) continues to shape and influence, what is known as Big Debbie.
Originally the solo project was titled Little Debbie, strictly a bedroom, recording experiment and a way to cope with alcohol addiction. She relocated to Los Angeles, soon after the demo’s release , and multiple tours and collaborations followed, – “Dos Lados” EP featuring Ciriza and Terror Apart out on Fantasy1 Records (https://www.fantasy1records.com/r-e-l-e-a-s-e-s). And a full length LP is out on Ratskin.
Founder/curator of Noisevember and Cybercrud records and one time Vengaboys opening act, the ever unpredictable and unexpected Lydia Musonic is a sound experimenter, machine tinkerer, drone ritualist, wheelchair stagediver and cyborg harsh noise scream queen.
Her recent work deals with biofeedback & motion sensing, rave music telemetry and the disabled body in dance-oriented environments; performance hardware development;
the reinterpretation of historic and influential sound art/experimental music works through the lens of gabber with the Sonic Art For Gabbers project alongside acclaimed multimedia artist Adam John Williams .
New River Studios is a ground floor venue with a wheelchair ramp down to the event space.
There is a very small lip on the main entrance.
There is an accessible toilet with wide door and grab rails in the bar.
