Power Punk Dance Trio Penetrates The Fringe
Are you worthy? The Gods of Rock command you to stand in awe before this fearsome feminist punk rock modern dance band! Some call them political, some call them outrageous, others find them hilarious. But no matter–they are here to deliver you The Rock in all its pure, sweaty, gender-crushing glory. All are invited to bang their heads, thrash their bodies, or even shoe-gaze to this timely, transcendent experience!
