We are a Seattle band, and we are a playful band, and we play in the places we live. Capitol Hill… It used to be THE spot for artists, LGBTQ community, and creative outsiders. Now it has become Bro-ville, hostile to everything it used to represent. Many people have left, priced out or disgusted, but many are sticking around and digging in. An enclave of old artistic capitol hill exists at The IN, an arts collective with art walks and events. This is where T-Rox plays its next gig, Thursday August 11th at the In Art Collective. Performances begin at 8pm!
Taken from the FB event page:
In this Capitol Hill artwalk event, we focus on mothering as a genderless industry necessary for the preservation, growth, and social acceptability of children and their development.
“The question I want to address is whether there is anything in the nature of children, women or men that requires a sexual division of parental labor even in post patriarchal societies.” – Sara Ruddick from “Maternal Thinking” (1997)(2006)
Mothering has a profound impact on our long-term well-being, impacting our ability to self regulate our emotions as adults. According to Karl Jung, the mother archetype is a symbol of our collective unconscious over history as a species. However, not all women are Mothers, not all Mothering comes from women alone. Can people identify with the Mother archetype, even if they do not identify as female?
In this group show, we are proud to feature visual artist and performance artist, Naomi McCulloch as she prepares a special spoken word piece about the genderless mother. She also presents 20 pieces of artwork from herself and her 11-year-old son, Zeke.
Trannysaurus Rox is a fun, outrageous and gendered-fucked band local to Seattle. Heard some rumors that there will be EXCLUSIVE COLLECTOR EDITION T-Rox dildo-tape-sticker packages available at this show. Fuck Yeah!
