This event is a benefit for Electrogals, an organization dedicated to promoting female electronic music composers and performers. This benefit helps fund our week-long festival, including electronic workshops, lectures, sound installations, and a listening room, ending with two riveting evening performances. Electrogals 2011 will be held at Disjecta in North Portland from October 8-14th. Recent Electrogals shows have included our May 2011 collaboration with Mike Barber and Ten Tiny Dances ("Five Tiny Dances Featuring Electrogals") at BlueHour, our RACC-funded 2010 Festival at Disjecta in June 2010, and a knockout 2008 festival that filled both stages at Holocene.

Also on offer: 'Electrogals' T-Shirts, contributing artist CDs, and a raffle for 80s cassettes as well as amazing prizes donated by local businesses! And as always, Mississippi Pizza provides delicious food and drink. So, feather your hair, rustle up some shoulder pads, and prepare to enter the DANGER ZONE!
