About the Artists:
www.dramatops.com/

Drama Tops; Seattle's hottest post-modern, nightlife performance rotational duo.

Drama Tops was born with the artistic partnership of Elby Brosch and Shane Donohue. They began making work together four years ago with the creation of a solo on two bodies. The dynamic between their trans body and cis body has created beautiful moments of frustration, competition, tenderness, and comedy. Jordan Macintosh-Hougham, a non-binary dancer, joined Drama Tops rounding out expression, perspective, and dynamism. The Drama Tops blends the worlds of nightlife and concert modern dance. You may have seen the Drama Tops perform in their self produced show, Drama Tops, this is for you, at Washington Hall, at On the Boards in Northwest New Works, at Velocity in Fall Kick Off, at Kremwerk in Family Meal and Catharsis, in Heels! At Cha Cha, and at a pop up party at Photon Factory.

Rachaels Children are an experimental punk band from Seattle who’s sound combines rhythmic looping guitars, driving beats and wailing vocals to create a crescendo of noise that is equal parts beautiful and terrifying. Imagine if Bikini K*ll and Talking Heads had three babies and raised those babies on sugar, anger and rock n’ roll.

The group says their passion for creating sound “stems from a desire to reject compliance and provide a space for communal tantrums.” This is a band that will look you in the eye, bark in your face, and send you home wanting more.


gendertender.weebly.com/

Gender Tender is an interdisciplinary performance project created by artist Fox Whitney that centers his queer black mixed transgender point of view. He creates experiences that investigate the nature of queer relationships, trans histories and the surreal nature of transformation Gender Tender engages a team of artists trained in Fox’s unique methods modeled on cults, sitcoms and riots. This special pandemic edition of a Gender Tender meta band features artists new and veteran that Fox was in a covid pod with this past year: Will Courtney Moonyeka and Nat Barry.

From cumbia to dancehall. DJ Nia has been hosting intentional, healing, political, sexy parties for years. When they are not DJing they are involved with the community, strategizing for the fall of empire, singing, being, and breaking free.
