Rock the Belles brings together the hottest female DJs, bands & creatives for a genre-defying celebration of the girls who are making their mark in music. Now a monthly collaboration with on-trend Underground Shoes, the brand behind Creepers.

After an incredible few months, including hosting events at The Box New York and a show at Shoreditch House for Arlissa, Rock The Belles are back in East London to launch 2013 with an incredible line-up…

Acts…

Ava Leigh - After a busy 2012 recording her new album & working with the likes of Robin Thicke and The Black Seeds, 2013 will see the long awaited return of AVA LEIGH to the live music scene. After being championed by the likes of Jools Holland, David Rodgian and the legendary Sly & Robbie (who produced Ava’s debut album) you can expect to hear the sultry sounds of Old Skool Jazz & Ska with a modern twist. www.avaleighofficial.com 

Little Nikki is the West Londoner signed to Mercury Records aged only 13 as one third of girl act Soundgirl. After touring with Pixie Lott and Justin Beiber, the band dis-banded and Little Nikki went solo. Completely obsessed with music, she is a major songwriter (co-writing all her songs) and performer – immersed in all genres, eras and sounds of music.
Best described as ‘Rihanna-meets-Azealia’ (Popjustice), Little Nikki is currently in the studio writing and recording with K-Gee (Jessie J). And at only 16 years old, this is only the beginning for Little Nikki. www.littlenikkiofficial.tumblr.com 


The Cry Baby are Anna Waldmann, Sam Campbell and Chris Tsui. Musically The Cry Baby don’t fit any particular category; there’s a hint of folk, echoes of trip-hop, the escapism of dreampop and occasionally a stripped-back baroque sound. It’s all carefully considered without being so perfect that it becomes sterile. As such, this combination of subtle experimentalism and almost lullaby-like sounds is quite beguiling. www.thecrybaby.co.uk

DJ Emily Rawson is one of the UK’s most in demand Djs and promoters. She has recently dj’d and curated stages at festivals including BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend, The Camden Crawl and Lovebox. 2012 has seen guest mixes for BBC Radio 1Xtra, a feature in Time Out as ‘Meet The Resident’ and playing in New York alongside legend Rich Medina as well curating and dj-ing an event at The Box NYC with Underground shoes.

Underground are the brand behind the phenomenon that are Creepers. Inspired by the ferocity of punk and founded in its febrile aftermath, Underground’s original creepers were first worn by new romantics, goths and new wavers in Camden, North London, during the late 1980s. More recently Underground has been adopted by designers at the bleeding edge of couture fashion, whose collections have been inspired by the company’s uncompromising style. Underground are giving away 2x pairs of Creepers & 2x Pairs Of Tickets to Rock The Belles, simply like their facebook page & watch out for the competition! www.facebook.com/Undergroundengland
