God-Des & She

Johnson County Fairgrounds (Iowa Women’s Music Festival) – Sept. 28

During my last winter trip to Austin I was hanging out at a bar with my mom waiting to see New Orleans’ Queen of Bounce Big Freedia perform (all of the best stories begin this way). I struck up a conversation with two people who, it turns out, were also mother and daughter. What are the odds?

It turns out that one of these friendly strangers was half of hip hop/soul duo God-Des & She who will be taking the stage on Sept. 28 at the Iowa Women’s Music Festival Day at the Fairgrounds. While they may be best known for performing at Shane’s bachelor party on the season three finale of The L Word, God-Des and She have been cultivating a large following nationally and in Austin’s LGBTQ club scene with their sexy beats and smart rhymes. They are one of the many diverse and talented acts that will be performing at this year’s festival which will mark its 20th anniversary of celebrating women in music and the arts.
