Bitch (born Karen Mould; 1973), also known as Capital B, is an American musician, actress, composer, and performance artist. Best known for her work in Bitch and Animal, John Cameron Mitchell's Shortbus, her work with Canadian folk musician Ferron, and her new project BEACH. Bitch sings and plays numerous instruments, including the ukulele, bass guitar, violin, and keytar—the artist has described her music as "electric violin poet rock". Bitch and Animal recorded their first album, What's That Smell? in Seattle, with Kate Wolf (Julie Wolf's twin sister) in the months leading up to the Amherst show.
Skip The Needle is an Oakland-based queer female quartet made up of musical superstars of the Bay Area; Vicki Randle (The Tonight Show, Mavis Staples) Shelley Doty (Shelley Doty X-Tet, Jambay), Kofy Brown (Kofy Brown Band, Sistas in the Pit) and Katie Cash (Katie Cash Band, Year of the Fist). Together, they make politically astute, rock n’ roll-funk. Their songs are musically diverse and carry a strong, socially conscious message, delivered with extreme joy. Formed in 2014, Skip The Needle has released two full-length albums and their latest EP - Octavia Of Earth, Volume 2, inspired by black feminist icon Octavia E. Butler, released on Soulectric - A division of Little Village Foundation in Fall of 2023. The band just wrapped a 2 month, entirely sold out run, of Hedwig and The Angry Inch at Shotgun Players in Berkeley, CA and have started writing their next album, after receiving a grant for the project from WAM. "I had never heard anything like it... the power they gave to the audience, the energy up there, was life changing." - JD Samson (Le Tigre, MEN), Tom Tom Magazine “The spirit of collaboration, communication, and freedom is contagious, and as the band’s live shows and quickly growing following can attest, there’s clearly a need for it now more than ever.” - D. Scot Miller (Editor in Chief), East Bay Express “But the real star of the show is the four-piece Black Dyke Rock Band, composed of Shelly Doty and Katie Cash on guitars, Vicki Randle on bass, and Kofy Brown on drums. These women play like rock is a dose of medicine you need to survive and they are committed to making sure you get top-notch treatment, no deductible required.” - Patrick Thomas, Talkin’ Broadway
