As part of the Oh Yeah Centre’s International Women’s Day on Saturday March 7, five female and female-fronted acts will come together to perform a selection of Björk’s back catalogue. This comes following her new archives book, an exhibition of her career and latest album, Vulnicure, and her emphasis on often-overlooked contributions to women in the art community – a problem she successfully fights through leading by example.
Each set will consist of 2 covers of songs by the iconic, innovative, Icelandic artist, and interpreting her music as well as performing their own material on the night are piano-playing songstress Katharine Philippa, Katie Richardson’s latest project Goldie Fawn, shoegaze-pop five piece R51, Shannon O’Neill’s – formerly of Vanilla Gloom – new project Sister Ghost and Jai McConnell.
The night will conclude with a Björk-inspired DJ set from Sage.
Admissions is completely free, and doors open for the show at 8pm, following on from the early afternoon’s family-friendly activities.
