Slumber Party: A Benefit For Slumber Mag
with Clever Girls, Father Figuer, Schlee, DJ La Rime
Thursday, April 25, 2019
18+ $5-$10 Suggested Donation
Start your weekend early with hope all is well for a Thursday night ‘‘slumber party’ to benefit Slumber Mag: a new online publication and community organization focused on highlighting non-binary and female musicians and artists launching spring 2019.
After the closing of Brooklyn based arts & music blog The Le Sigh in 2017, Slumber Mag hopes to launch the next generation of TLS, dedicated to continuing to amplify non-binary and female voices in music. Along with planned online programming, Slumber Mag also aims to expand TLS’ efforts into our community, putting on DIY shows/exhibitions, workshops, and college panels for musicians, artists, and fans along the east coast.
So please join us for Slumber Mag’s first party in Vermont this April! In addition to Burlington’s own Father Figuer and an indie inspired DJ set by La Rime, we also have a local special guest to headline the show, to be announced soon. As this party acts as a fundraiser, all profits from the night will go towards Slumber Mag and their efforts to develop their website and start organizing programming.
Clever Girls is a band formed in and based out of Burlington, Vermont. Robert Slater’s deft ability to interpret rhythm alongside bassist, Tobias Sullivan are invaluable, while Diane Jean’s soulful voice and raw, personal songwriting abilities combined with Holt’s effortless guitar work have created a recipe for what Redline Roots have called a “delicate balance” between soft and vulnerable, or a rock and roll raucous. On March 7th, 2017, they released their debut EP which you can stream exclusively on Bandcamp. The record has been described as heartbreaking; a “grungy collection of attitude and emotion that hits hard…but hits so damn good.
