Finally it was the turn of Delilah Bon, accompanied by the energetic bassist Reuna and dynamic DJ, Goldenaxe. With a message for the ‘girls, gays, and theys’ to party at the front, Delilah bounced around the stage between her bouncy and dynamic songs, the dark horror themes, and fiery lyrics fighting back against the misogynistic status quo that many people in the room have experienced first hand. All the songs were powerful, thought-provoking, and in cases like those from the Ready To Kill EP, darkly fun. From the bass-pounding riffs of Freak of the Week, which discusses having fun on a night out without creepy men coming on to them, all the way to the pounding sounds of the crowd shouting Dead Men Don’t Rape, every word shouted and sung hit deep with everyone in attendance. Many there had experienced cat-calling and “lonely walks home with your keys in your hands getting ready to chop dicks”, as described in the aptly named Chop Dicks. Most had gone through those around them discouraging them and being told to “stay in your place”, as spoken about in tracks Homework, School, and Bad Attitude. It gave everyone, on and off stage, a safe space where they could shout their anger and receive that support blanket. With the highlight on misogynistic violence for War On Women, Goldenaxe holding up a banner with the names of murdered women, Ruena’s bass saying WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED, and the fierce criticism for abortion rights in Dead Men Don’t Rape, Delilah speaks from the heart and stands up for what she believes in. It was truly a set to behold.
