About our February feature:
Fureigh (they/them) picks up a guitar and “shreds melodically,” according to Rolling Stone. After five years in the critically acclaimed Brooklyn-based queer rock band the Shondes (“the next Sleater-Kinney?” –VH1), Fureigh co-founded the The Homobiles (“the Bay’s mainstay queer party punk supergroup” –East Bay Express; “songs about cars and babes” — plus bathhouses, street harassment and San Francisco glory days), featured in Mx. Justin Vivian Bond’s curation of the New York Live Arts Festival. Fureigh has shared the stage with Margaret Cho, Jody Bleyle of Team Dresch, and more, and played guitar in the trans superhero rock opera the Red Shades. They’re currently working on their debut solo album.
