The Ogdenite Presents ‘Femme As Folk: Book More Womxn

Femme As Folk: Book More Womxn is a new multi-genre music festival series featuring women, transgender, and nonbinary musicians every Friday and Saturday in March at Lighthouse Lounge in Ogden.

Deann Armes, founder and editor at The Ogdenite, says: “We have amazing musicians in Ogden, and Utah, but like most communities women, trans, and nonbinary artists are underrepresented. I challenged Paddy Teglia, entertainment manager at Lighthouse Lounge, to book more womxn-led bands every weekend in March (It’s Women’s History Month) and he agreed. I also wanted an opportunity to raise money for Rock Camp SLC because they are literally opening doors for hundreds of marginalized kids.”

Armes added: “We need full equality in the Ogden Music Scene, and everywhere. It should be the norm, not for just a month; this series will show that it’s possible. Now we just need the community to come out, enjoy the shows, and celebrate with us!”

Here’s the dream lineup–and worth a short road trip. I have a few shows already picked out!

  • 3.1 DoomCupcake, Floatinground
  • 3.2 Talia Keys & The Love
  • 3.8 Somebody/Anybody, She Cock With A Vengeance
