We are pleased to announce the date for the second annual TREAT Y'RSELF FEST (a benefit for the annual March to End Rape Culture, co-presented with Pussy Division). Treat Y'rself Fest (Saturday, August 20th, 2016) is all about self-care and having a great day out in a safe, inclusive, all-ages and accessible space for all.
Stay tuned for more updates - we are stoked to announce the first string of artists, and we hope to add vendors also (soon - keep an eye on this page for updates). Thank you to all who made last year's event such a huge success for MTERC - we hope to outdo ourselves yet again with the lineup and future announcements! Thanks to PhilaMOCA for once again hosting us! Local artist Samantha Gurry will once again supply her amazing hand-cut animated visuals and Kevin Attics of Mercury Girls (http://mercurygirls.bandcam.com/) will DJ between sets.
PUNK LEGEND ALICE BAG of The Bags (Don Giovanni Records) will do a small tour including the date for Treat Y'rself Fest. These dates will be super limited and we are so excited to host Alice! Her new album is so inline with a positive message about saying No to Sexual Harrassment with her lead single "No Means No." ALICE BAG'S debut LP is out June 24th on Don Giovanni Records. Check out her web site and pre-order her LP below:
