Opening Thursday, February 28th, from 9PM - 2am
February’s CRIMSON GLOW will feature the filmmaker and experimental historian Cauleen Smith. Cauleen’s extensive body of work “reflects upon the everyday possibilities of the black imagination.”* Cauleen will present Grace Jones’s genre-hopping pop album, Inside Story (1986), in its entirety. Arrive at 10pm sharp for this segment of the evening. Afterwards, we will play an array of women-made music from different genres and timespans, culminating in a dance-friendly environment.
CRIMSON GLOW creates a space for femminess and feminists who want to dance to, and sing along with, amazing woman-made music from all genres. CRIMSON GLOW is committed in equal measures to allowing engagement with the work of innovative musical pioneers and fostering dance party enjoyment.
CRIMSON GLOW is inspired by queer dance parties like Chances Dances and feminist music movements like Riot Grrrl. We welcome women, girls and all other gender expressions. We use GENDER NEUTRAL bathroom signs. The Whistler is ADA accessible.
