Top Acts About Town
Rap/Hip Hop
The rap duo consists of cousins from New Orleans, described by one fan on the Web as "maniacal, lo-fi weirdos [who] have been creating futuristic glitch trap with enough bass to kickstart the apocalypse." Their notoriety, such as it is, stems from graphic descriptions of drug use and violence in their lyrics.

She is considered to be the first person to die after the Hyde Amendment made it illegal for Medicaid to pay for abortions. This action also connects to a Supreme Court hearing this fall on a Mississippi case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that could overturn Roe vs. Wade.

Demands: • Protect & expand Roe v. Wade; safe, legal abortion on demand without apology • Repeal the Hyde Amendment • Overturn state barriers to reproductive choices • Stop forced sterilization • No to caged kids, forced assimilation, & child welfare abuses • End medical & environmental racism; for universal healthcare • Defend queer & trans families • Guarantee medically sound sex education & affordable childcare • Uphold social progress with expanded voting rights & strong unions Organizing meetings for Seattle’s action will be every Tuesday at 6:30pm on Zoom.
