“With the Universe we’ve toyed and now we are the Asteroid”

WIGband, created by Johanna Poethig and Barbara Golden in 1985, is a legendary, tasteless, feminist performance art cabaret duo from the Bay Area. WIGband responds to pertinent political points of the eras they have lived through, to the Presidents just elected or for years endured. Terror grips the sane citizens of our nation as 45 rises to power and WIGband songs from previous republican presidents are dredged up and new stanzas added. With the Anthropocene upon us the lines are drawn and WIGband will sing again as they pound their penis spears at Pro Arts on EarthDay.
