Description

Join us for the sassiest spoken word, soulful live music and rockin’ DJ sets by the UK’s most brilliant Nasty Women. See kickass poets Salena Godden, Lisa Luxx and Claire Trevien, singer-songwriters Miranda Joy, Madame So and Lánre. Salena will be performing her band new work RED in response to the tampon tax. It's a masterpiece. Spoken word will be followed by music.

Live Music:

Hosted by comedian, actor and writer Penelope Soloman, (@aHackneyMum) the final evening of NASTY WOMEN UK has music to get you both thinking and dancing. …..

Miranda Joy, a 22 year old, London based singer-song writer. With her rich, soulful voice and meaningful lyrics she accompanies herself on the piano. She has performed at a variety of venues and festivals and, earlier this year, her original song "The Fall" featured on BBC1's coverage of the Super Bowl highlights. Her captivating ballads incorporate tones of Jazz and Blues and she takes further influences from Lana del Rey, London Grammar, Nina Simone and Etta James. @mirandajoymusic

Madame So, a Paris-born/London-based singer-songwriter. She makes lyric-led grit pop that has been likened to Hole, Blondie, Patti Smith and PJ Harvey. Madame So's put out two four-tracks, 'The Sell-by Date EP ' and 'It's Not Even A Colour', as well as the singles, 'If Only You Were Dead' and 'Let's Dance' (David Bowie cover). You'll either love the catchy immediacy of her melodies or dismiss it as being too "lo-fi"… Either way, in her own words: "If I pushed your buttons, I've accomplished my mission." @madameso

Lánre, with 2 successful EPs under her belt, Home and Human, which showcase her Acoustic Soul, Folk and captivating storytelling Lánre has toured in Canada, France, NYC and Sweden and taken her unique sound to the Royal Albert Hall, Greenbelt Festival and Edinburgh Fringe. We are thrilled she’s performng for us tonight. She’s currently working on a new album that will be released in 2018. @iamlanre lanreworld.wordpress.com/
