Spotlight on Spoken Word: On 9/26 Linda XYZ Stuns with Spoken Word

The Punk Rock Sewing Circle is excited to announce that Linda XYZ has agreed to perform at SF Punk Renaissance: Early Era Punk.

Linda Xyz will perform her stunning Spoken Word on Saturday 9/26 at the Verdi Club! Linda wowed the audience in May of 2013 at SF Punk Renaissance: Early Warning A Spoken Word event on May 2, 2015 where she performed to a standing room only crowd.  She began performing in 1979 in the punk band @lieNation  and has continued to today. She takes her lyrical themes from politics, strong and angry women, with a little sex education thrown in for good measure. Her current band,  Dick and Jane,  started in 1988 and reformed in 2013,  regularly plays in the East Bay and San Francisco. Their next show is 9/13 at the Night Light in Oakland.

From Linda: “I started to go to experimental art and punk shows in 1975 and made the leap onto the stage in 1979 in my first band, @lieNation. I found my voice by writing songs that expressed my anger; I do them as spoken word because the voice I found was not in any range you’d care to hear! I’m 65 years old and still raging against the machine in my band Dick and Jane.”
