Thursday, March 27: CRIMSON GLOW presents LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX w/ BROOK SINKINSON WITHROW
For the March edition of CRIMSON GLOW, Chicago artist Brook Sinkinson Withrow will showcase the music of women in hip-hop who deal with sex in frank terms — rapping and singing about consent, respect, desire, nicknames and moves explicitly in the 1990’s and since. Brook had the privilege of an inclusive and real sexual education called Our Whole Lives in her formative years, and she wants to present this same attitude of respect and openness while letting women’s words about wanting dick tickle our ears. Expect to hear from Salt-n-Pepa, Bytches With Problems, En Vogue, Khia, TLC, Missy Elliott and more.
Brook will provide a free mix and other goodies (ahem) for y’all’s taking. So come in and get down!
Brook Sinkinson Withrow is an artist with a varied writing practice who organizes and programs, especially moving image and sonic material. She selects songs at bars from time to time, co-directs a project space in Pilsen called Forever & Always, and collaborates often.
CRIMSON GLOW creates a space for femminess and feminists who want to dance to, and sing along with, amazing woman-made music from all genres. CRIMSON GLOW is committed in equal measures to allowing engagement with the work of innovative musical pioneers and fostering dance party enjoyment.
