About Mujeres Malas:
An evolving socially conscious practice, Mujeres Malas grows with collaboration and communal support. Our hands, voices, and resources are dedicated to building connections and examining our demographic’s history to guide us on a path of healing and a future where latinx bodies are respected and liberated.

Mujeres Malas is a multidisciplinary artist collective composed of Natalia Barrientos, Leticia Contreras, Jessica González, Karen Y. Martinez, Moe Penders, and Arely Peña, all artists practicing in various mediums in Houston, Texas and Tarija, Bolivia. In October of 2017, Mujeres Malas debuted with “Lo que me dijeron Was” a performance that critiques societal limitations placed on our members. This performance shared experiences and trauma imposed by machismo, fat-phobia, racism, Mexican hegemony, misogyny, transphobia, and homophobia. In a time when continuous attacks on the latinx community are the norm, Mujeres Malas challenges these mechanisms of oppression collectively.

About Guerra Girl:

Jessica Jill Guerra is a Houston-based printmaker and designer with a pure love of expressing beauty, from printmaking on lush paper and fabric to outdoor painting on metal and brick. Her designs are guided by an early love of woodcuts and nature, with romantic energy emanating from her velvety florals, textiles, and inky impressions. Though her rhythmic patterns break rules with space and composition, Jessica's work is guided by her substance and technical detail, built upon years of painting architectural illustrations (while daydreaming floral patterns).

SECOND ANNUAL ‘WOMEN ROCK’ CONCERT TO BENEFIT WOMEN-CENTRIC THEATRE COMPANY MILDRED’S UMBRELLA

Returning for the second year in a row, Mildred’s Umbrella (MU) is teaming up with Rudyard’s British Pub and Houstonia Magazine for 'Women Rock,’ a fundraiser benefiting the theater company’s 2019-20 season. The benefit concert will feature local female-fronted bands and solo artists, a silent auction, and a VIP section with hors d'oeuvres from Rudyard’s
celebrated chef, Jordan Economy.

“We had such a great time putting the concert together last year that we decided to make it our annual fundraiser,” said Managing Director Rebecca Ayres. “This year is going to be a bit bigger though, with more musical acts and silent auction items spread throughout the venue.”

Associate Artistic Director and Concert Coordinator Miranda Morris added, “This fundraiser is vital for Mildred's Umbrella. It's our largest fundraiser of the year and will kick start our 2019/2020 season. Partnering with these great female artists to present ‘Women Rock’ again this year, is an honor and we are so grateful for their support. We're taking over both floors at Rudyard's for the 2019 concert; it's going to be huge!"

Signed on for the 2019 concert are: Miears, Pretty Vacant, Quinn the Brain, Marina Rocks, Annika Chambers Band, Sweet Mama Cotton, Benita, Lazer Kittenz, Alli Villines, and more.

The funds raised from the evening will support MU’s theatrical productions and reading series, which promote both emerging and recognized women playwrights and directors, and its outreach program, Partners for A.R.T., which puts theater to work for local women service organizations.

The Second Annual “Women Rock” benefit concert will be held at Rudyard’s British Pub on Saturday, February 9, 2019. Doors open at 6:00pm and concert will start at 6:30pm. Party Package Tickets (includes 2 premium drink tickets) are $25, and VIP tickets (includes drink tickets and access to VIP area) are $50.
