Get ready Los Angeles, because everyone’s favorite feminist musical showcase is turning one. Play Like a Girl (PLAG), a music collective that features various musical acts at their monthly showcases is celebrating its birthday with a massive showcase on May 27th at the Echo and the Echoplex in Los Angeles.
PLAG has teamed up with Super Deluxe, a Los Angeles-based independent entertainment company, to put on the event, which will include food trucks, virtual reality games, and a ton of surprises. The showcase itself, which will solely feature female or non-binary fronted acts, will be headlined by L.A.-based punk rock band Kitten, with various musical and comedy performances throughout the day.
The collective, which gives those who identify as women and gender non-conforming a platform and safe space to showcase their music and art, has been widely successful. PLAG, which also runs a record label, will release its first compilation at the showcase, featuring PLAG artists, alum, and other local bands.
Because one of PLAG’s main goals as a collective is to provide safe space for people who identify as women or gender non-conforming, the showcase will also be selling anniversary merchandise and a raffle with incredible prizes from local businesses and company, with the proceeds going to Trans Alliance Ventura, a support and resource provider in Ventura County, California.
If you haven’t gotten tickets yet, you’re in luck because you can get them at the event for only $18.50. We can’t wait to celebrate PLAG’s first birthday!
