ABOUT
-----------

Imagine if the Spice Girls were translated by bell hooks. Now stop imagining and open your sparkly eyes because BABY NO MORE TIMES is the feminist extravaganza you’ve been waiting for. Aggressive, raw and hysterically funny, BABY NO MORE TIMES is what happens when you give a group of female musicians too much glitter and advanced degrees in gender theory. Come and sing with Melissa, Lauren, Rachel and Diana to original pop songs on subjects from pay equity to catcalling, from the male body to the systemic destruction of the patriarchy. We’ll have you dancing hard, laughing hard and getting pumped to march through the streets proclaiming your feminism to a sick, sick beat.
