Fusebox Festival is coming, two Coathangers shows included
The Coathangers at #HotelVegan during SXSW 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
As discussed on BV, The Coathangers have a new split 7" with Davila 666 and will hit the road for some East Coast dates in late May, but first the quartet will reenact SXSW and play a pair of Austin shows on the same day as part of the Fusebox Festival.
The first show happens earlier in the evening on 4/25 at Long Center for Performing Arts as part of an event entitled Forklift Danceworks: Invasion of the New Grrl Order:
Acclaimed Austin-based choreographer Allison Orr teams up with Emily Marks of Scottish Rite Theatre and over one hundred local girls in a raucous homage to the Riot Grrl movement of the early 1990s. Accompanied by the celebrated female punk rock band The Coathangers (Atlanta), the event serves as the kickoff to this year's festival.
The FREE event is still looking for girls ages 6 - 18 to participate. For more information head to their site. Later that night The Coathangers will head to Fusebox Festival Hub (1100 E. 5th Street) for a show that will set you back a measly $5 at the door.
Fusebox Festival runs from April 25th to May 6th, and is "an annual contemporary art and performance festival" that features everything from film to dance to music. Among the included artists are bounce musician Vockah Redu, who will bounce his way into Fusebox Festival Hub on 4/28. $5 gets you in at the door.
