Spokane's Itchy Kitty has made a name for itself around these parts with the purr-fect blend of punk and thrashy rock. But this weekend they're taking that energy to Seattle for the first-ever Queens of Noise punk festival on March 7, which seeks to magnify the voices of femme and nonbinary artists from the region.
Itchy Kitty has a primo spot in the lineup, too: They'll be playing on the festival's main stage right before headliner Alice Bag, a genuine punk icon and one of the pioneers of L.A.'s underground scene in the '70s.
The daylong festival will be raising funds for Peoria Home, which provides housing and support for women affected by sex trafficking. If you happen to be in Seattle this weekend, catch the event at the Highline Bar. For more information, see facebook.com/TheQueensofNoiseFestival.
