Wednesday was the birthday of punk rock Riot Grrl cellist and new mom Madigan Shive, about to hit the road with Boston trans fierce folkie Evan Greer, bringing their babies along on the "Tiny Fists" Tour!
Internationally touring activist musicians Bonfire Madigan Shive and Evan Greer hit the road this spring with their babies on board, toting an arsenal of stringed instruments and a whole bunch of reusable diapers. The "Tiny Fists" tour will span from Vancouver BC to Los Angeles with dozens of stops in between featuring high energy political musical performances and interactive workshops on a variety of social justice, LGBTQ, environmental, mental health and alternative parenting topics.
The Tiny Fists Tour, Shive and Greer's first project together, will bring their art and activism into a broad range of venues: university classrooms, gay bars, art galleries and activist community centers, along with the more traditional music venues. "Our primary goal with the Tiny Fists Tour is to increase the visibility of LGBTQ and activist parents and show people that you don't have to stop rocking when you become a mom!" said Greer. Rock on!
