From TV stars to acrobats , DJs to drag queens, and everything in-between, Girl Pride is going to rock your socks off!


Chely Wright, performing at Girl Pride 2015!Wright released her debut album in 1994 on Mercury/Polygram. That album, Woman in the Moon, attracted positive reviews and Wright would go on to win the Academy of Country Music Award for Best New Female Vocalist for that year. Wright reached commercial success with her release on MCA Nashville: “Shut Up and Drive,” from her third album Let Me In, hit the Top 20 US Country chart securely at #14. She continued along her successful arc with her follow-up up, 1999’s Single White Female, which scored her first Number 1 for the eponymous single.


Ivy LevanIvy Levan‘s blossoming talent has been recognized by some of the most respected players in the music community, including world traveling DJ and producer, Diplo. Returning to her southern roots with a sound that she alternately dubs “swamp-hop” and “punk-rock Motown,” Levan serves up a brand of blues-infused pop that boldly flaunts both her larger-than-life voice and gritty-yet-glossy, in-your-face energy. Ivy Levan’s performances are high-powered and passionate, but they never skimps on good, filthy fun.


The Vallures, performing at Girl Pride 2015! The Vallures bring their audiences soulful and endearing Motown music with a twist (and a shout)! The Vallures are the sounds of the summer of ’66 at a Go-Go/sockhop. They dance & shake, move it and groove it with old hits, rarities, and a dash of originals that point and nod to that special style of ’60s lush pop that will make you wanna do The Jerk and Boogaloo while your friends do the Watusi and the Bug all over your Mashed Potato. The Vallures experience is uptight, all right, outta sight, and is guaranteed to have you singin’ and dancin’ all night!


Crackhead Patty, performing at Girl Pride 2015!For local acoustic cover duo, Crackhead Patty, crowd participation is the key ingredient to their energetic shows. They’ve covered everything from pop hits like J.Timberlake’s “Sexyback,” to classics like The Carpenter’s “Close to You,” to indie kinda-hits like the Rusted Roots’ “Send Me On My Way.” You will likely know the words to everything they play and you’ll want to sing along. And yes, they will let you. 😉



Cirque Indy, performing at Girl Pride 2015!Beyond stellar music performances, Girl Pride will also have a strong visual component this year, adding the aerial acrobatic skills and finesse of CirqueIndy. Established in 2012, the troupe blends their combined love of acrobatics and performance art into a dazzling, gravity-defying show that showcases various disciplines, like aerial silk, rope, static trapeze, aerial hoop, and much more.



Angel Burlesque, voted Best Burlesque Troupe by NUVO readers, 3 years running!Angel Burlesque‘s brand of burlesque takes the genre to entirely new levels of theatrics, using smart and hilarious comedy routines to up the sexy stakes! Their dedication, ingenuity, and creativity have earned them the title of Best Burlesque Group from NUVO readers, three years running! Their performances with Cirque Indy intermingled between bands, will dazzle and delight.



Lola Palooza, your host for Girl Pride 2015!Once again, the One-Woman Festival, herself, dons her hosting wig for us, after a successful stint as the host for the inaugural Winter Pride 2014. Her visceral humor and biting wit are the perfect complement to a night already set to be spectacular!


Closing out the night, from 1am-3am, will be some of Indy’s Best DJs — the G!rl Pride DJs. This prolific collective of local DJ extraordinaires — Gabby Love, DJ Chachi Guerrero, AriAtari, and DJ Fate — have collectively played all across North America, and have held down residencies at some of Indy’s most discerning dance-floors, including the Vogue Theatre, Metro Nightclub & Restaurant, Talbott Street, just to name a few.

To handle the growing scale of this annual tradition, Girl Pride has been moved to the award-winning Vogue Theatre. With over 25 years experience in handling top-tier shows with high production demands from international recording artists such as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Muse, and many more, the Vogue is the perfect spot to ensure the best experience for concert-goers.
