In the early 1990s, Swedish death metal revolutionized the international music scene. Suddenly, the mild-mannered Scandinavian country found itself at the forefront of a new movement with worldwide impact thanks to bands such as Entombed, Dismember, and At the Gates. The birth of black metal drove the culture to even greater extremes, featuring a rawer, darker sound and non-ironic death-worship.

Join WORD Bookstores, Dame Products, MakeLoveNotPorn, Rosebud CBD, and Pomp & Whimsy for an evening of mocktails, tastings, micro-workshops and giveaways. We are coming together to promote and discuss ways to better practice self-care, especially for women/trans/non-binary folks who are almost never encouraged to put their own self first! In the spirit of Audre Lorde, "caring for oneself is not merely self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare."
