The Eclectic Lineup:
Rage Against the Machine tribute band
- Rip the System
Psych Punk w/ a female lead

“Whether perched at the piano or behind her guitar, Mary’s flirty vocals beckon in a playful manner reminiscent of Regina Spektor; lyrics ever deepening as they swirl through the psyche of a charming old soul turning 21 all over again.”
- Mary Walker
“A little jazz, a little R&B, and a lot of soul. Fans have often compared her sound to that of Erykah Badu, Faith Evans and Lauryn Hill.”
Exceptional Denton Folk Artist
- Maria Cecilia
Phenomenal Spoken Word Performance Artist
- Erica Granados-De La Rosa
Sheila Bustillos Reynolds
Stand-up Comedian Extraordinaire
$3 Cover for 21+

Along with the concert, we will also be holding a silent art auction.
We welcome donations from ALL women or feminist artists in the community! (Paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures, handmade anything.) This is a great way to advertise your art and give back to the community! Again, all proceeds will go to Denton County Friends of the Family to help other women in our community.
E-mail Darci at firstname.lastname@example.org or Daisy at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com with “Femme Fest!” as the subject, and let us know you’re interested!
Girls Rock Dallas (GRD), a non-profit that aims to empower young girls and women through musical education, will also be joining us at Femme Fest to promote their organization. They’ll have a table set up for anyone interested in getting involved!
Many thanks to Stefani Jones, of S.A.J Photography, who has volunteered to photograph Femme Fest!
