Childbirth, Aye Nako, Sharkmuffin, and more at Shea Stadium

Post Author: Edwina Hay

The first night of the 2016 edition of Northside Festival began on Thursday, June 9 and Homoground, Grrrl Power Hour, and Hoosatron presented a showcase featuring performances from five bands. These acts were TinVulva, DRELLA, Sharkmuffin, Aye Nako, and the NYC debut performance of Seattle’s Childbirth (which features drummer Stacy Peck of Pony Time, bassist Bree McKenna of TacocaT, and singer/guitarist Julia Shapiro of Chastity Belt). For their one song encore, an audience member by the name of Alexa sang vocals for “You’re Not My Real Dad.” Photographer Edwina Hay attended the showcase and captured all five sets for this gallery.

We also spent the following day with Childbirth and those images can be found here.

We headed to Shea Stadium the first night of Northside to catch Childbirth’s first NYC performance.
