Women Rock Flashband Showcase
Sauf Haus Bier Hall
1216 18th Street Northwest
About The Event:
With current events giving us daily reminders about the mistreatment and abuse suffered by women, as well as their underrepresentation in positions of power, this Flashband looks to help stand with women at this point of crisis by celebrating and giving voice to female artists.
Flashbands will exclusively perform songs by female artists and female-fronted bands.
The show will be at Sauf Haus, an awesome beer garden and venue in Dupont Circle! We’ll be setting up a stage in the upstairs space.
We’re very excited to be partnering with This Could Go Boom! for this event. TCGB! is a nonprofit record label whose mission is to curate, create, publish, promote and distribute the musical works of under-represented, gender diverse people. TCGB! works for parity of representation in every facet of the music industry, from recording & production to live performance & creative expression to music journalism & media broadcasting.

Flashband connects musicians to form a one-time band and play a showcase of short high-energy sets one month later.
Here’s how it works: You’ll form a one-time band at a meet & greet jam, rehearse with your band, then play the show! Typically 40-45 hobbyist musicians participate, and have 4 weeks to prepare a 15-minute set for a Saturday night show.
Here’s why 2000+ DC area musicians love Flashband:
-Meet & jam with local hobbyists like you (no sketchy craigslist)
-Play a Saturday night gig at a sweet venue just by showing up
-Skip worrying about show logistics, backline, and promo
-Get professional photos of you rocking out on stage
-Make new friends in the music scene
-Enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience among your peers
