Up Yours!

Hosted by DJ Defiance LIVE every Sunday at 8:00pm

Up Yours! is a one-hour per week peek into the world of women & gender non-conforming folx in punk. This show is partially centered around the concept of riot grrrrrl and its duality of being a movement that was incredibly powerful to some and is still considered to be one of the strongest “alternative” movements in music but also suffered/suffers from a lack of inclusivity and often short-sighted nature. It will explore the the past, present, and future of punk and its many subgenres. It may also include some screaming.
