The 2021 All Things Go Music Festival returns on Saturday October 16th and makes a major move to the 20,000 capacity Merriweather Post Pavilion venue. The festival continues their female-forward billing with this year’s headliner and Grammy Album Of The Year nominee, HAIM – in addition to St. Vincent , Charli XCX and LAUV at the top of the bill.
Those artists will be joined by a slew of up-and-coming artists — Girl In Red, Cautious Clay, Beach Bunny, Soccer Mommy, Gus Dapperton, Tkay Maidza, Jelani Aryeh, Role Model, Tai Verdes, Blue DeTiger, Isaac Dunbar and Del Water Gap — all taking over two stages at the iconic Merriweather Post Pavilion, making it one of the largest independent festival on the east coast.
The festival is known for their female-focused billing and equal representation in the music industry in general, for instance the Saturday of All Things Go 2018 spotlighted an all-female lineup specially curated in collaboration with Maggie Rogers and LPX (Lizzy Plapinger), both All Things Go friends, and Plapinger, a previous partner on the All Things Gold club nights in Washington DC.
Today Babygirl, the Toronto duo of Kirsten Clark and Cameron Breithaupt release their 6 song EP Losers Weepers via Sandlot Records. The duo has previously released singles “Nevermind”, “You Were In My Dream Last Night”, and “Easy.” For the EP release, they premiere the single “Million Dollar Bed.”
“Losers Weepers is a collection of songs written for anybody who feels like an underdog, whether it be in their relationships, careers, whatever,” says Babygirl. “Some of the songs, like ‘Easy’ or ‘Nevermind,’ are written about a break-up where one person was much more invested than the other. Other songs, like ‘Million Dollar Bed’ or ‘Today Just Isn’t My Day’ are more about navigating life with a gnawing sense of disappointment. We made an effort to offset some of the bummer lyrics by making the productions playful and sweet, almost hopeful. We always want to make it feel bittersweet.”
Recently teaming up with Spotify Canada to be featured as one of their RADAR Canada artists, Babygirl have solidified their position as a one to watch for this year. Accomplished songwriters who also recently co-produced Lauv’s “Canada ft. Alessia Cara,”
