WINTERRUPTION – Vagina Witchcraft / Kilusan / The Rules
April 2, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 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.

Their music collection is filled with their favourite funk, soul, jazz, rock, disco, hip hop, house, latin, dancehall, afro-beats, and filipino classics.
