On Inauguration Day musicians played at two different benefit shows in Kansas City. At Mills Record Company, a benefit show (Rock the Twat) was played for Rose Brooks Center. Rock the Twat was a feminine product drive to help those at the Center. The center provides refuge for domestic violence victims. They raised money and collected pads and tampons at the show. The local bands Katy Guillen and the Girls, Members from Bohemian Cult Revival, and Sister Mary Rotten Crotch played.
Katy Guillen and the Girls started out the night with some killer blues. Below are a few photos there set. You can see the whole album from the show HERE.
After Katy Guillen and the Girls played, members of The Bohemian Cult revival sang and did a little burlesque.
Sister Mary Rotten Crotch closed out the night with some rebellious punk.
Here’s a video Too Much Rock took of Sister Mary Rotten Crotch’s song, “Jaded.”
Over at the recordBar, musicians took the stage to raise money for KC for Refugees. The show, Musicians Get Loud for Active Justice was played by (the)Medicine Theory, Hipshot Killer, Emmaline Twist and Cantankerous with Ernie Locke and the Karmic Hillbillies (not pictured).
