F.A.D.G.E. Fest

Besides Record Store Day which was this past Saturday, April 18th, I also neglected to post about F.A.D.G.E. Fest. Here's what went down:

F.A.D.G.E. Fest (Feminism, Autonomy, Diversity, and Gender Expression!)

A female-positive day of workshops, discussion, live music, knowledge, art, sharing, food, F.A.D.G.E., and more F.A.D.G.E.

Of everything here, I'm especially bummed to have missed Half-Eaten Children. I didn't even think the project was still alive. Do yourself a favor and check out I'm Gonna Be a Diamond Someday on Naitha's Half-Eaten Children MySpace page.
