Fitness Womxn

Carrboro, NC


One of the most urgent and exciting bands to emerge from the Triangle this decade, Carrboro’s Fitness Womxn use the basics of rock ’n’ roll—guitar, drums, bass, and a twisting trio of voices—to create a revolutionary countermeasure to music’s manmade norms. On their electrifying 2017 debut, Macho City, which netted a breathless four-star review from the Independent Weekly, Fitness Womxn lampoon dudes who espouse their taste like it’s a major world religion and push the topics of periods and suffocating social structures into the faces of those uncomfortable discussing such matters. By embracing the unmitigated sensibility of No Wave, Fitness Womxn pose a post-punk shock to a system they prove has grown outdated.
