Concert News By Anna Mudd / May 24, 2019 The first No Boys Shebang, a concert benefiting the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is set for Sunday, May 26 hosted by Ava Mirzadegan’s “No Boys Allowed” blog. The blog is a DC-based music blog and radio show dedicated to women and non-binary musicians. Mirzadegan, explains that this event is close to her heart. “Two years ago, I lost my mother to the disease and it changed the course of my life entirely.” Since then she has worked to coordinate benefits and events to aid the cause. Aside from 100% of proceeds going to the charity, this concert will highlight female artists. “The sentiment behind "no boys" is less of an anti-men separatist thing and more about our disdain for the patriarchy and boy-ness,” said Mirzadegan.Poster art by Camille McMullenA few of the girlboss performers have been announced on Mirzadgan’s blog. There will be two DJ sets, one by DJ Meeshka (debuting her first DJ set at the event) and another by Girl IRL. Plus a huge treat will be performances by Hannah Epperson, Blush Face, Jules Hale, and Bluish.Notably, Hannah Epperson has received recent accolades for merging the distinct worlds of indie and classical genres through her violin, looping pedals, and various electronic sounds. Her 2016 album, Upsweep, and 2018 album, Slowdown, have brought her to the attention of many as her sound is so unique and almost impossible to categorize. She will be opening for indie rock band, The Dirty Projectors, on their current tour as well. “It’s going to be a privilege to perform on the same line up as Hannah Epperson, she is a looping wizard, and makes beautiful and delicate folk pop,” said fellow performer Michelle Kim (DJ Meeshka).The event will also include vintage clothing booths, tarot cards, and drinks. It will be one not to miss for the cause and for the artists.
