WINTERRUPTION 2022 – Vagina Witchcraft / DJ Kilusan / The Rules
January 29, 2022 @ 10:00 pm - January 30, 2022 @ 11:59 pm
Fronted by nonbinary poet & activist Kayla Fernandes, Vagina Witchcraft dives headfirst into deeply personal topics concerning mental health, depression, heartbreak & anger. The 4-piece doom metal-hardcore band from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada, draws influence from classics like Black Sabbath combined with the sheer, combative energy of hardcore punk.
