Nicola Visaggio is a South Philly based queer boi dandy-dyke, visual artist (photo), musician, singer/songwriter and drag performer. Her songs pull on influences from folk/rock and blues music, with lyrical content motivated by life and all the obscurities contained within.

Author, artist, musician; this (ir)regular Renaissance woman has college credit in stone cutting, wood crafts, jewelry making, ceramics & welding. She is a self-taught nutritionist & vegetarian cook.

DJ LIZBOT (WPRB)
Lizbot spins beeps and whirls while records fly deftly through her robotic appendages, resulting in a frothy mélange of no wave, prog, folk, noise, funk, punk, serialism, and any other genre you can think of.

DJ M.J. FINE (O.G. Sugar Town DJ, City Paper)
M.J. Fine was one of the original Sugar Town DJ’s when we started in 2001. She is a true Girl Rock expert, able to find the best tracks on all the mediocre Juliana Hatfield and Liz Phair albums that I’d long since forgotten about. This self-described “word nerd” is a copy editor for the Courier-Post and a longtime contributor to the Philadelphia City Paper, where she writes the “Reconsider Me” column.

Manning the soundboard is the lovely Beth Warshaw of WXPN and Girls Rock Philly.
