Chulita Vinyl Club – Bay Area Chapter

Since last September I have been documenting and am now a member of the Chulita Vinyl Club, Bay Area Chapter.

From http://www.chulitavinylclub.com:

Chulita Vinyl Club was launched in December 2014 as an all-girl all-vinyl club for self-identifying womyn of color in the context of providing a space for empowerment and togetherness. We stand united as a female DJ collective spanning 7 national chapters bringing together a community of vinyl loving girls.

  • CHAPTERS IN TEXAS AND CALIFORNIA: Austin, San Antonio, Rio Grande Valley (RGV), Los Angeles, Santa Ana, Bay Area
  • IDENTIFICATION: We are womyn of color and each Chulita identifies with their own identity. We are not to be classified as one nationality or culture (Latinas or Chicanas or Tejanas etc.) Within CVC we individually identify with the following: Latinas, Tejanas, Chicanas, Xicana and more.
  • GENRES: There is no music genre policy in CVC as anything goes; sixties girl-groups, yé-yé pop, garage girls, punk, indie pop, northern soul, new wave, post-punk, riot grrrl, motown, ska, diy pop, punk rock, oi!, power pop, punk, twee, chicano oldies, sixties soul, northern soul, pop, chicano soul-dies, tejano, mexican rock, mexican punk, latino punk, rocksteady, dancehall reggae, good tunes, good tunes, good tunes.

I feel so lucky to be part of this collective.  I feel like I have found my soulmates.  Here are some pics from events, chilling with the chulxs and our monthly dance parties.
