Hedva will debut songs from their upcoming, in-progress album, Fist. Written on a haunted acoustic guitar that disappeared for ten years and then returned in winter 2023, the songs from Fist produce a voice that slouches toward a serenade by screeching, croaking, and growling. Dominatrix blues, bog-witch lullabies, succubus folk: There is doomed lament, dismembered body parts, murderous rage, and, of course, ordinary swampy heartbreak with men on their knees.
Xina Xurner will present their cathartic music performance combining DIY and power electronics, mutated vocals, and bad drag to expand ideas about queer and trans femme bodies and cultivate intimacy with otherness. Their music combines a variety of genres (including happy hardcore, industrial, drone metal, and techno), to create sadical and sexperimental noise-diva-dance anthems that evoke a sense of transformation, rebirth, and renewal.
