Saturday’s release party for Desdamona’s new album Siren Sound flips the usual formula for many male-dominated (or only) local lineups and is completely produced, promoted, performed and presented by kick ass women. It’s certainly fitting, since her new album lyrically takes place in an alternate universe where women are the dominant voices of hip hop. Along with help from ACEntertainment, the MC will be joined by celebrated singer PaviElle, B-Girl Be participant (and one of the best parts of the annual Breaker Battle) Mona Lisa, DJ AndthatsBreon (who crushed it at the Sarah White EP release party), and emcee BDot Croc8:30 PM. $10. —Paul Cajun
