Half-Stack Sessions, a Madison group that aims to create a supportive network for female-identifying, gender non-conforming and LGBTQ musicians, will be using its fall showcase at Art In to benefit Proud Theater. The theater company, started in Madison in 2000, creates a judgment-free community of supportive peers and adults for queer youth actors, writers, etc. to perform their own stories. The showcase features Minneapolis-based Cult of Lip as well as three Madison-based acts: experimental duos Glassmen and And Illusions, and Heather The Jerk, a solo project from Heather Sawyer of The Hussy and Proud Parents. Cult of Lip's most recent EP, Your Feedback , was released on Madison tape label Rare Plant. One standout track, "Skin," blends psych-y, fuzzy tones that would fit on a shoegaze record but carry a lot more energy, and Kim Gordon-esque vocals bleed through the feedback on another, "Burnt Hair." —Erica Motz
