To support the release of their debut album Sex, Death, and Other People’s Money, out January 24, Copyslut are playing at The White Horse Inn this Saturday, January 25th. Accompanying them are Bay Area musicians Louda y Los Bad Hombres and Mya Byrne, the former of whom Copyslut shared the stage with this past November at Bottom of the Hill. Copyslut also promises features from special guests and go-go dancers to round out a night celebrating the work of the community they have fostered, and particularly the work done by those who have had to work extra hard.
The album itself comes after the release of three singles in 2019, each bringing a slightly different flavor to Copyslut’s theatrical-yet-punky style. The band describes the album as an ode to a community of people who straddle various edges of society, affectionately referring to them as “Edgewalkers.” Lead singer Chatz describes the healing nature of the recording process as “…an integration of the traumas and losses that came from some of the heavier songs and a powerful balancing growth that came from the lighter songs.” Recorded in Richmond, CA at Airship Studios, the band worked closely with producer and engineer Nahuel Bronzini, who previously worked on Fantastic Negrito’s “Please don’t Be Dead.”
Louda y Los Bad Hombres brought tremendous energy to their last show with Copyslut, filling the room with pumping Latin beats and Louda’s powerful voice. Mya Byrne is a songwriter, poet, multi-instrumentalist, actor, and proud trans dyke, who has previously performed at the SF Trans Pride, Dyke March, and Folsom Street Fair. All three bands stand firmly from the edges of society and will certainly make their voices heard at the White Horse this Saturday.
