Following a year filled with putting on events successfully promoting women in music, Dance Like I’ve Got Diamonds are now announcing their last event of 2017, taking place on 6th December at The Victoria, Dalston. In true Christmas spirit this last event will focus on giving back to society, with all net profits from the event going to women’s aid organisation Nia. As always, the event will feature a female dominated line-up, this time consisting of GIHE favourites Dream Nails and West London’s Baby Arms, plus some very special guests.
Recent events such as the #metoo movement have raised a new debate about what most women already knew, how extremely widespread the sexual, physical and psychological violence against women still is and that it can be found almost anywhere – especially in close relationships. With their Christmas Extravaganza event, Dance Like I’ve Got Diamonds wish to continue the debate about what can be done to end men’s violence against women, by giving back to their local community and supporting women’s aid organisation Nia, who specialise in helping victims of rape and domestic violence.
And who better to headline this event that feminist punk witches, and absolute heroes of ours, Dream Nails. With their ‘Girls to the front!’ ethos and aim to create a safe-space for women and non-binary people at each and everyone of their shows, they’re bound to make this an event to remember.
Tickets to the event on 6th December at The Victoria are available now from Dice, at £6 per person. All net profits from the event will go straight to the chosen charity Nia and their work towards ending violence against women and children.
