Surly Grrly, RiGBY, Riotgrrrldarko

A loud night of passionate, feminist punk brought to you by Surly Grrly, RiGBY & Riotgrrrldarko. Come out and riot with your local grrrl gang. 
Surly Grrly is a MPLS-based queercore protest band that likes to have fun while loudly fucking the patriarchy. Their live shows are filled with rage, passion, and politically-driven lyrics addressing bigotry, queerness, and misogyny. With a satisfyingly raw 80’s garage punk sound, Surly Grrly uses catchy hooks and tempo changes to rile up a crowd, mixing originals with a variety of bombastic covers. Vocalist Medbh McNamara and guitarist Eloïse Boigenzahn, both multi-instrumentalists, are joined by a rotating cast of band members on bass and drums (most recently, bassist Lou Levy and drummer Kat Hansberry).

RiGBY is a DIY punk band out of St.Paul, MN. The 4 piece group got their start in April of 2019 and consists of Fay Dunkel(guitar), Kean Wilwerding (drums), Maude Lorr (Bass and vocals), and Hana Mahli (Bass and vocals). 
The band is best defined by their loud, stage shaking performance that combines riot grrl style screams and vocal harmonies. RiGBY blurs specific genre lines while leaving everything out on stage. 
They recorded their debut album, We’re Dying, alongside Minnesota-based artist and producer, Benny Cole. We’re Dying can be streamed anywhere you listen to music.

Riotgrrrldarko is a 24-year-old self-announced Lady Rager. Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Darko pushes boundaries bringing a fresh grunge and gritty sound with explicit lyrics to match. The artist proclaims the genre as Grime Core music; often consisting of frenetic trap drums and 808s combined with a hypnotic synth stab to create most instrumentals. Clever verses resolve undeniably catchy hooks, putting a whole new spin on the classic ’90s “Riot Grrrl” movement. Riotgrrrldarko proves that women don’t always have to be perfect and poised to get the attention they deserve!
