We’re baaaaaack!

Hello, slutfriends! It has been FAR too long. We had a glorious New Year’s Eve show to ring in 2020 and then BAM, a fuckin’ pandemic! So naturally we’ve been laying low since then, trying our best to get through this beautiful but crumbling world of ours as best we can, showing up for each other, eating a lot of bread, etc.

We are very thrilled and moist to announce, however, that your favorite Damsels will be making our triumphant return to the LIVE STAGE in 2023 with TWO, count ’em TWO shows! And like the sluts we are, they’ll each be in a different city, to accommodate our slutfriends in different parts of the country (sorry west coast, we’ll get back to you ASAP, too):

  • Saturday, April 1, we’ll be at GOLD SOUNDS in BROOKLYN, NYC with our friends The Manimals and MONTE for a rip-roarin’ queer-as-fuck show starting around 8 p.m. Cover $ TBD.
  • Saturday, May 6, we’ll return to our home at the CRYSTAL CORNER BAR in MADISON, WI for what’s sure to be just a ridiculously fun time with our soulmates, Venus in Furs, and also MONTE will be making the trip to join us, too! This one also starts around 8pm and will set you back a measly $15.

There will be snacks and mayhem and gay ol’ times! We hope to see your butts at one or the other (or both?!). There may even be a new cover song or two that we’ll be Trashifying, but certainly expect all the old favorites!

Missed you,

-Em & Meg

Wasted $ Broke in New York City

Meanwhile, our new album Wasted $ Broke is totes available for the pleasure of your ear holes. Get into it: BANDCAMP | CD BABY | ITUNES | and here’s a review

We’re going to Maybash, sluts!

Good news, everybody! We just booked our first ever festival gig, with thanks to all of you who voted for our asses: MAYBASH 2015 is gonna get TRASHED.

Well, it probably was anyway, given its history of being a great big party of drunks-in-a-field, but we like to think we’ll be added some extra flavor to that scene. DT will be melting faces Friday night, May 22 toward the latter half of the evening, and we’re in real good company. See the graphic below for the full line-up. Will we see you there, sluts?


2015: The Year of Trash

Greetings, sluts! 2015 is already gearing up to be a hella crazy good year for ye olde Damsel Trash, and we have our incredible friends and supporters to thank for continuing to make this weird little project so awesome and fun.

So what’s on the menu for the Year of Goat? We’re glad you asked!

First and foremost, we just have a metric fuckton of shows coming up. Go check out the Gigs page for the details, or stay up to date with us over on the Book of Faces. We’re beyond stoked to be heading to Los Angeles next week for an incredible show with three local acts, and then we’ll be headed to Portland, Oregon in May, New York City over the summer, and probably Austin, Texas later in the year. We’re also working on gigs in Chicago, as well as all across Wisconsin and our near neighbors. If you’re a rad band or venue looking to share a bill, too, drop us a line!

tanktopsSecondly, we have TANK TOPS. And they are so, so trashy. For now, you’ll only be able to buy them at our live shows, but we’re working on putting together an online store for our slut-friends around the world to enjoy the spoils as well. Tops are $25 a pop and come in sizes S thru XL at the mo’.

We’ll also be headed into the studio to record the single for ALL GIRL BAND in the next month, so keep your beautiful ears peeled for that. And you know what that means? Oh yeah, new album coming before the end of the yeeeeeear!

Oh and did you see the thing where we came in second for Madison Magazine’s Best of Madison – Local Rock Band?! Gnarly!

Our trashy little lives are just an embarassment of riches thanks to y’all. Every band that’s rocked with us, every venue that’s hosted our shenanigans, every punk that’s come to our shows, SuperSlutFan Jen, stage butch Bri, all the pugs of the world, and more – THANK YOU. Let’s keep this queercore train on the tracks!
