Do you like queer events and music, AND do you happen to live in the DC metropolitan area? If you leapt into the air and screamed “YES,” then check out this event featuring MEN (featuring JD Samson of Le Tigre), Hunter Valentine, and more!
Phasefest, DC’s Queer Music Festival, has something for everyone — from eletro-pop bands and singer-songwriters to producer/MCs. Also, lots and lots of lesbians, transmen, transwomen, gays, and presumably, even straight people! Check out the details below:
WHAT: Phasefest, DC’s Queer Music Festival
WHEN: Thursday, Sept. 23 and Friday, Sept. 24 (7PM-2AM); Saturday, Sept. 25 (7PM-3AM)
WHERE: Phase 1 Bar, 525 8th St, Washington, DC 20003 (just 1.5 blocks from the Eastern Market metro)
(Click on any band to get a preview at their MySpace page or read a bio of each and every performer at the Phasefest site.)
**NOTE: This is one of only four U.S tour dates for MEN through December, so this is a great opportunity to catch them live.
Come hang out with me! I’ll be repping Autostraddle on Thursday and potentially Friday night, so look for me in my sweet new Autostraddle shirt — I’ll be near the stage or lurking near the bar, beer in hand. Look very hard, too, because I’m vertically challenged.
Buy your tickets now! You can order a VIP Weekend Pass for all three nights for $40. Thursday costs just $10, Friday is $15, and Saturday is $20. You can also buy at the door, though you might be taking a risk with such an impressive and incredibly gay line-up.
