LA FEMME – Photography by David Hewitson


Thanks to everyone who joined us at LA FEMME last Friday night. Big shout out to Mylee Grace and the Milkshakes, Bec and Ben, LourdesWarchief. Please check out these artists! Thanks to Tallow GallerySailor Jerry AustraliaAnnandale Hotel, all the visual artists and especially all our friends who came out and celebrated our love for the women who create art and music in our city!

LA FEMME is a celebration or women and their rights to freedom of creativity and free speech in Australia, a privilege that we take for granted.

We dedicate this event to our punk rock sisters PUSSY RIOT who are right now facing some pretty hard times in jail in Russia for speaking out against their Government.

Yes there’s not much we can do physically from here in Australia, but if we can inspire our friends and others to come together and celebrate our creativity, then in the long-term the future may one day be a brighter one for young women not only in Russia, but all over the world.

Peace and love. X

Pussy Riot member freed as two bandmates face exile to prison camp

News has come about the release of PUSSY RIOT member, Yekaterina Samutsevich. The other two members Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova face two years hard labour in a Russian prison colony. It’s a bitter-sweet day for Pussy Riot and their supporters worldwide, but we’ll keep on supporting and spreading the word about the FREE PUSSY RIOT movement.

For seven months, the world got to know Pussy Riot as three women defiantly smirking inside a glass cage as they issued a rare challenge toVladimir Putin and the justice system that serves him. On Wednesday, the trio was separated when a Moscow court set free Yekaterina Samutsevich, the oldest and quietest of the Pussy Riot three, while ordering her two bandmates to serve the rest of their two-year sentences in a Russian prison colony.

The two women who remain in jail, Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, smiled through light tears after hugging Samutsevich goodbye. They then placed their hands through an opening in the court’s glass cage, waiting for guards to cuff their wrists and lead them away.

MEDIA RELEASE: THE FREE PUSSY RIOT PARTY COMES TO BYRON BAY

Politics seems to be the current language of choice for many creative groups lately. Sydney’s My Sydney Riot have been getting behind a lot of causes to date and very recently they have been engaged with the Free Pussy Riot worldwide movement. After releasing a 20 track music compilation, a drum event in Taylor Square and a packed out event at Flinders Hotel in Sydney a few weeks back, My Sydney Riot decided to bring the Free Pussy Riot party to the Great Northern, Byron Bay, one of the most exciting live venues in Australia.

On Saturday 6th October a special lineup of independent bands will come together for one night only; Fait Accompli (Syd), Pirates Alive (Gold Coast), Mylee and the Milkshakes (Syd), Bec and Ben (Syd) and locals The Deers.

Also featuring on the night will be the official debut screening of a short film by local Byron Bay label Tallow Gallery starring talented young up and coming surfer, Cloudy Rhodes. The film titled ‘Journey’ (preview above) sees Cloudy traverse through some epic landscapes from South Africa to Mozambique and Swaziland. This film ties in with the important message that women and all humans alike have every right to get out there and share their stories with the world, a right of passage which unfortunately still remains a rare concept in many societies, even in these modern times. This film is not to be missed.

So bring along your friends, dress colourful or bring a colourful balaclava and a smile and help us celebrate our right to freedom of speech, a right which wasn’t afforded to the three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot, Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova who are currently serving two years jail for speaking our against their government.

Come out and dance Byron! FREE PUSSY RIOT!
