It’s hard to believe that we hosted our last International Women’s Day show back in 2020, blissfully unaware it would be our last live Supersonic Presents event in a whopping two years! So how fitting that we make our big comeback with the next instalment of our IWD celebrations. Lady, oh, lady do we have a party planned for you. This moment has been a long time coming…
We’ve invited three sensational artists alongside a whole host of DJs to perform, spread some joy and get us moving. Come join us in celebrating the incredible Women artists we champion in our Supersonic line-ups all year round, the Women that work their bums off to make Supersonic happen and the Women of our audience who sure know how to have a good time! From the production office, to the stage, to the mosh pit – Supersonic Women take up space!
Opening up is CURL Recordings artist Alpha Maid, bringing post-punk from South London…
Alpha Maid (aka Leisha Thomas) is a guitarist and producer from South East London who crafts compositions heavily drawing from lo-fi punk, grunge, and glitch electronics.
Set against an amalgamation of neofolk, post-punk, and industrial sounds, Alpha Maid’s vocals flux between candid, close and unclouded, then fragmentary, cutting and pasting. Her debut EP was released via the fluid collective and label CURL Recordings, of which Alpha Maid is a member, alongside the founders Coby Sey, Mica Levi and Brother May. Her most recent release is second EP ‘CHUCKLE’ released in March 2021 via the collective and label C.A.N.V.A.S.
Followed by the otherworldly sound of the Chaos Bells from Manchester’s Lia Mice…
Lia Mice is a multidisciplinary artist whose works include experimental electronic music production, large-scale digital musical instrument design, live A/V performance, composition for film and interactive sculpture making.
For this IWD event, Lia brings her experimental electronic AV set to Brum, fusing immersive soundscapes with experimental techno-pop! She will debut tracks from her upcoming industrial/outsider-pop album Sweat Like Caramel, accompanied by Odd Lust performing her latest instrument Chaos Bells, a very large (2 metres wide and tall!) sculptural instrument with 20 pendulums that produce bell-like chimes and chaotic drones.
Closing the show and bringing synth-heavy noise are new kids on the block, un.procedure…
un.procedure are an experimental-jazz-rock outfit, with members hailing from both Birmingham (synth player Piera Onacko and drummer/electronic artist Nathan Jones) and London (alto saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi).
The trio deliver a frantic collision of free improvisation with spiralling, 70’s rock influenced grooves and heady, sci–fi tinged soundscapes. A project born initially as a commissioned work, the band has since sprouted legs of its own. Having played shows nationally and internationally in 2021, un.procedure have sights set for a debut EP release this year. Multi-faceted artist David Stanley (GURIBOSH) provides a live, reactive visual spectacle to accompany their pummelling performances.
And if that’s not enough, we’ve got a stonking array of DJ sets lined up from…
BLUE RUTH DJ – our Supersonic Recordings artist will jump on the decks with grungy tunes
OLD BORT DJ – expect off-kilter beats for goths and geeks
MCSAIMA DJ – spinning Bollywood sounds from the 60s 70s 80s and 90s
