Rah! Rah! is a feminist punk rock retrospective of the past 30 years of female, femme and non binary sounds from Melbourne. From The Wet Ones to Wetfest, this multi arts gathering resets the historical cannon of contemporary music with a 12 hr event across The Speigeltent and the Tote on Sat 12th Jan 2019.
