Sep 14 Retro Rock for Reproductive Rights

Retro Rock for Reproductive Rights

We’re going back to 1973—when Roe v. Wade was decided and women’s rights were advancing. Forget the regressive politics of today! Let’s go retro and reclaim the spirit of the 70s. Support NC-based nonprofit Ipas (it’s our 40th Anniversary!) and other groups working for women’s rights. Wear your platforms. Get out your glam rock garb. Dance to Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band. 1970s costume contest.

Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band

Deeply rooted in Funk and fully committed to the ongoing evolution of the genre, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band has a sound that is unique yet has the power and soul to create lasting melodies and seismic rhythms.

Doin’ It Hard, their sophomore studio release, is a reflection of the Booty Band’s approach to music, touring, performing, and to life in general. Recorded at City of Progress Studios in Miami, FL with DJ leSpam, Doin’ It Hard is Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band – next-generation, redefined for a new decade. Doin’ It Hard hit the streets on March 27th 2012 and is available in 12” vinyl, compact disc, and digital download.

The group has been together for a full decade, performing well over 150 shows and completing three to four national tours each year. With a new album in the works at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC (projected release date: summer 2013), a remix album entitled Re-Doin’ It Hard debuting this July, and Summer tour in full swing, they are definitely artists to watch. Re-Doin‘ It Hard will feature some of the band’s favorite DJ‘s and Musicians including Agent 23 (GFE and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo), DJ leSpam (Spam Allstars), Eymarel, Paper Tiger, RBTS Win, Duende Mtn Duo, and Dave Hamilton, adding their distinctive perpectives to select tracks from their new album.

Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band is: Lee Allen (drums), Al Al Ingram (bass, vocals), JP Miller (guitar, vocals), Mary Frances (keys, vocals), and Derrick Johnson (trombone)

Featuring special guest, DJ Piddipat
