And so, for our second line-up post, we’re delighted to announce that the following acts will perform at Revolt #2 on Saturday 16th March… (incidentally, there is also a Facebook event page!)

Cat Bear Tree

“Deriving their name from a kick ass cat and a cowardly bear, Cat Bear Tree are a London-based trio whose indie, melodic, sometimes poppy, sometimes punky tunes nod to indie alt acts like Sleater-Kinney, Electrelane and Warpaint.

Roz Kaveney
“Poet, novelist, activist.”

We’re already feeling pretty hyped for the next Revolt, which will take place on Saturday 16th March. There are a few awesome performers still to confirm, but we figured it was time you heard about some of the acts already on board…

Husbands N Knives
Four piece riot grrrl punk band from Torquay.
“Inspired by early 90s female fronted acts like The Gits, Bikini Kill, L7 and Hole, they have been spreading their very own brand of energetic punk across the South West, playing at various venues and festivals including Brighton’s Clit Rock {a Charity Night against FGM} , The Plymouth Punx Picnic, Nottingham’s Hell Hath No Fury supporting Vice Squad and Torquay’s OXJAM which they headlined in 2012.

Husbands N Knives

Husbands N Knives

Army of Skanks

Coventry’s very own punk rock warrior women.
“Proper punk, with attitude and fun!”

Not Right

Local three-piece punk band.
“Short songs, queer feminist rage, learning to play our instruments as we go along”

The Sensational Sally Outen

Stand Up Comedienne, Trans Activist, Actor and Part-Time Evil Scientist.
“So, this is “comedy as activism”, then? Well, almost. With her trademark geekery, bizarre flights of reality, and the odd dinosaur impression, Sally provides a case for why she may – possibly – be an acceptable human being after all.”

Megan Elizabeth Dodds
Spoken-word performance from a founding member of the new Riot Grrrl Birmingham collective.

Ditch Your Boyfriend

DJs from Coventry’s feminist alternative club night.

As before, we’ll also have zine stalls, and space for people to bring their own zines! Watch this space for further announcements.
