To round off a year of putting on fantastic events promoting women in music, Dance Like I’ve Got Diamonds hosted their last event event of 2017 at The Victoria on Wednesday. In true Christmas spirit, it focused on giving back to society, with all net profits from the event going to women’s aid organisation Nia, who specialise in helping victims of rape and domestic violence in North East London.
Kicking off the live music are Babyarms – Jen Doveton from Colour Me Wednesday’s solo project – delivering their luscious, twinkling indie-pop creations.
Next up, in place of DOLLS who sadly had to cancel due to illness (wish you better, DOLLS!), are Berries. Blasting out their impressive racing riffs and rolling beats with a riotous energy, their raw rock-fused power marks them out as definite ones to watch in 2018.
Headlining the night are our favourite feminist punk witches, Dream Nails. With their seething, punk-filled power, they treat us to a range of super empowering offerings, raging against domestic violence, misogyny and bullies with all the sparkling, buoyant energy you could ever desire. With their unique impassioned charm and raucous force, Dream Nails once again prove why they’re a necessity in our lives right now; continuing to inspire and motivate us all to get to the front and make our voices heard.
