Revolt #8 – Saturday 7th March

December 9, 2014 Leave a comment

Thanks to everyone who came to our November event, and to everyone who performed! It’s amazing to be able to host such a cool night, so it really means a lot to have the support of so many cool people, both from Coventry and further afield.

We’ve got loads of things to share from Revolt #7 still, including a video of the night created by Seth Corbin, some really creative contributions to our next zine, and a lot of awesome photos.

All of that will be coming to this website soon (along with a digital copy of Revolt Zine #3), but in the meanwhile, here’s a sneak peak of some of the things you’ll be seeing at our next event, which will take place in the Coal Vaults on Saturday 7th March




LIINES – Last seen gracing the Revolt stage as (hooker) prior to a name change at the beginning of 2013, L//NES will make you want to move your body and shout along like no-one else. This bass-driven Manchester band have toured Europe, supported the likes of Gossip and Le Tigre…and now they’re coming back to Coventry to rock your socks off.

THE ETHICAL DEBATING SOCIETY – jerky, shouty riot grrrl from London, with unstoppable beats, boy/girl vocal interplay and a mission to get you to do it too.

Big Joanie

BIG JOANIE – Black feminist sistah punk from London, playing stripped-down, lo-fi rock. Totally sold a tote bag to Laverne Cox.

DJ WESTENRA – Leamington Spa’s hottest new DJ – the woman behind the decks at local feminist club night Can’t Touch This.

DANNI – local poetry spoken word from a ranty lefty queer.

Plus! As ever, soooo much more…


Revolt #7 – Saturday 29th November

We’re back – and what a line-up we have for you! As usual, we’ll have a mix of incredible bands, DJs, spoken-word acts and stalls at The Coal Vaults in Coventry, including…

The Tuts

THE TUTS –  a sassy all-girl punk band with pop sensibilities, hailing from West London. Last year they were hand-picked to tour with Kate Nash, this summer they played Glastonbury’s Left Field stage, and this November…they’re coming to Coventry!

DIRTYriot grrrl meets noise rock. This Gloucestershire trio like horrible riffs, Divine, glitter and phallic imagery.

NOT RIGHT – basically the Revolt house band at this point, angry/earnest/joyous. Expect lipstick-smeared bodies and overexcited feminist sloganeering.

THE PASSÉISTS – exciting new local group featuring members of Revolt alumni Bad Vibes and My Therapist Says Hot Damn.

ELEANOR LISNEY – reading poetry composed in varied stages of her life, mostly from the perspective of a disabled woman in exile, from memories culled from childhood in Malaysia or as young expat wife living in France.

SOPHIE HADLUM – at our last event, Sophie delighted us with strange tales of the forest and sarcastic feminist puppetry. So we invited her back…

SOPHIE SPARHAM – the second Sophie on our line-up is a sci-fi/ fantasy writer, poet and has a show on TotalRock Radio. Her poetry aims to inspire and comment on the world around us.

DJ J355 – another welcome return to Revolt, spinning grrrl tunes between bands.

ALIEN SHE – spinning female-fronted indie and alternative rock to get you dancing after the bands!

Plus, as always, we’ll have the usual range of zine stalls, the chance for you to help make the next Revolt zine, and the Revolt Feminist Library will be present.

Tickets will cost £5 on the door or £3 in advance, with advance tickets available soon.
