JD Samson and MEN

by The Staff on December 5, 2013

Second Ward, Friday


If you don’t know JD Samson from her work with feminist electroclash band Le Tigre, then maybe you know her from her role as Jid in the groundbreaking sexuality film Shortbus. The iconic lesbian artist has toured with Peaches, rallied to free Pussy Riot, and most recently spearheaded MEN, a DJ/electro-remix band with Le Tigre’s Johanna Fateman. Their new album, Labor, is a collaboration with French electronic producer Yuksek, infusing undeniable dance anthems with frank political lyricism. Fool’s Gold-backed Japanese girl group the Suzan will open. (Dec. 6, 8 PM, $10, 71 North 3rd St., Hudson,  jeandeaux.com)
