Double Dare Ya: Episode 13 - Lilian
Hello there everybody!
Today the dear people at "Double Dare Ya Podcast" aired their 13th Episode, in which I am super happy to announce I am the guest!
In our talk we spoke about a range of topics not exclusively related to hardcore, but for sure all linked. I'll try to be as chronological as possible.
Here goes a list of links to topics and bands we spoke about, including the Brazilian hardcore scene bands I mentioned and a social project that deserves the highlight and financial $upport.
Soooo, without further ado... lets go!
xAmorx - First sxe band I got to know. They are from my home town. Because of their flyers about vegetarianism, I became a vegetarian in 2001.
Bulimia - One of the most notorious and important feminist bands of an era, singing in Portuguese. It was the reason why we started “Seqüeladas”.
Point of no Return 1996-2006
São Paulo Vegan Straight Edge seven piece band, influenced by bands like “Earth Crises”. They are the reason why I became sxe and later vegan.
Time and Distance - Brazilian Vegan Straight Edge band which Kat shared stage with in Europe and that I know some of the members in person.
Bands I played:
Sequeladas/Menina Má - 2000-2002
The first band I played. I was supposed to be the bassist (got a bass guitar and was trying to learn for a couple of months prior), but I ended up being the drummer, which is the love instrument of my life. Shout out to the girl that never answered our calls back for the next rehearsals! LoL
We were called "Seqüeladas" on our "punk music" phase, and changed the name to "Menina Má" after we discovered "Kittie" and wanted to be as bad ass as they are, and tried to sound more "metal". I just found the only two songs we ever recorded and made us a BANDCAMP.
First sxe band I was a member. I was the front person. 2002/2008 with hiatus in between. Spotify.
xDa Próxima Vez eu Mato Vocêx 2006-2008
In order to give you context regarding my "Kindergeld" joke:
Usually at Fluff Fest you can see a majority of German citizens among the audience and the cars parked there. Making over 50% of the audience, many of them are on their early 20's.
Child benefits in Germany (Kindergeld)
The child benefit is a monthly payment given to all parents in Germany, regardless of their income, to ensure that their children’s basic needs are covered. The German child benefit is provided by the Family Benefits Office (Familienkasse) at the Federal Employment Agency.
Who can claim child benefit?
German and EU citizens are entitled to child benefit, as long as your place of residence is in Germany. "
"According to Section 66 (1) EStG and Section 6 (1) BKGG, child benefit in Germany has been € 219 per month for the first and second child, € 225 for the third child and € 250 per month for each additional child since January 2021."
In comparison, as mentioned in our talk:
As of January the 1st 2021, the Brazilian minimum wage for a worker that according to Brazilian laws should work 44 hours a week (yep, not 40 hours) is "R$1.100,00", which is worth 176€ on today's exchange rates.
Vegan Pizzeria based in São Paulo by two members of "Time and Distance", therefore 50% black owned. Follow! Support! Send love!
2000-2009 (Hardcore Girls in English)
Garage Feminist Record Label and Festival I used to organize. Last Festival edition was in 2009.
My vegan recipe book debut:
VEGAN BAKING BASICS
Home gold! West Coast/US based hardcore band, which I am proud to share is the second and third release of "My People Records".
Hardcore band based in Denver/US, which happens to have the front person as one of "DDY Podcost" hosts. Their concert at Fluff Fest in 2019 was cool AF!
Bellow a video of them playing at "Verdurada's" first edition. "Verdurada" was a vegan sxe/drug free festival, gathering bands from all over the globe, with the goal to promote veganism and to have a festival tobacco and alcohol free. This festival edition was based in São Paulo, but other collectives did the same in different states.
If representation had a name. All lesbians found their place in alternative music after them. The love songs.. the wish to have their lives and love normalized. You excuse me, I need to grab some tissues.
And that's the end! Thank you all for reading until the end! Shout out to Kat and Sarah! Long live "DDY Podcast!"
