Free concert TONIGHT - IC Human Rights presents: F to (e)Mbody: Athens Boys Choir and Katastrophe


Contributed by Gena Mangiaratti

IC Human Rights presents F to (e)Mbody, a hip hop and spoken word concert created with the goal of bringing trans-art and visibility to college campuses, on Wednesday, November 16 at 8 p.m. in Emerson Suites (doors open 7:30). This event is free and open to the public.

F to (e)Mbody features Athens Boys Choir and Katastrophe, two transexual artists who are pioneers in gender expression and reconstruction through hip hop and spoken word.

Athens Boys Choir: From Athens, GA. A gender-deviant, multi-media, spoken word/homo-hop extravaganza.

Katastrophe: From San Francisco, CA. A genre-busting, emo-hop mc, whose stunning lyrical skills merge with beats that slide from slick to raw to solid to eccentric.

Both artists have hit the stage with such notable artists as The Gossip, Ani Difranco, Saul Williams, Aliz Olson, Le Tigre, The Indigo Girls and Poets from HBO’s Def Poetry Jam.
