Elle Shimada Band Curates ll IN ALL WAYS A WOMAN


We've got all the funs ahead but no funds, so we've put together a fundraiser gig at Ev on Easter Sunday to make this dream a reality.

Bringing back the essences of our conceptual, immersive and multi-sensory residency in Feb, we can't be more excited to share this fresh&bossy line up with the dearest sisters.

The event title is a homage to an incredible poem by Maya Angelou.

--- // MANIFESTO // ---
Elle Shimada and the collective are a humble young family of six creatives Abbey Howlett Rara Zulu Finn Rees Matt Hayes and Lucky Pereira who are committed to learn and act responsibly as modern artists.

We are diasporas, we are feminists and most of all we are artists who are not afraid to share our most raw self through the medium of music.
We are ever-learning, but we recognise the power we hold when we utilise music in solidarity.

We are conditioned to fuck up all that we love.
Let's give a fuck - We can fix this shit.

This dance floor is a seed of activism.
Let's take it home, water it every day until we grow into a forest.

We are all in this together.

--- // WE GOT YOU // ---
This is an inclusive event.
We welcome all our audience for who they are, we are all for people who do not conform and we celebrate our differences.

We will try our best to make it a safe space for everyone.
Any racism, sexism, harassment or harmful action will not be tolerated.
Please let Evelyn Hotel staff or Elle know if you experience any bad vibes. Fuck the bad vibes.
We got your back. xx

--- // IMPORTANT // ---
