Tomorrow night at The Whistler, Claire Arctander and Latham Zearfoss present CRIMSON GLOW, a monthly night featuring women-made music. 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.
This month CRIMSON GLOW welcomes Jessica Harvey, a tender and hilarious Chicago-based visual artist. Jessica will show new work from her current video project entitled ‘100 songs to cry to,’ wherein she records herself singing to 100 different songs that bring her to tears. With these videos, she investigates the psychology of crying, ties between music and emotion, and stigmas attached to crying women while referencing the bedroom confessional and ‘selfie’ culture that is now prevalent in the digital world. To compliment this work, Jessica will present Sleater-Kinney’s 1997 album Dig Me Out in its entirety. A formative record for many burgeoning feminists of our generation (your hosts included!), Dig Me Out is in turns sharp, sweet, biting and sad. Jessica will also distribute a specially-made zine.
