Off the back of a gripping and emotive performance at the sold out Sad Grrrls Fest in Melbourne this year, singer-songwriter Jo Neugebauer has today announced that her debut EP, Memories & You, will be released on Friday December 2nd through Sad Grrrls Club Records. The first single off the EP, Comfortable Curiosities, was released today, and is a taste of the raw and uncompromising beauty of Jo’s songwriting.

To support this release, Neugebauer will be playing two launch shows, one in Melbourne where she currently resides, and one in her hometown of Hobart. In Hobart, she’ll be joined by Sad Grrrls Club founder and manager Rachel Maria Cox, as well as Zena Mohamad of the band Squid Fishing, and Sarah Lacey Ann.

Memories & You is Neugebauer’s debut, but already her voice is distinctly hers. A self described writer of songs about ‘feelings and cats’, Neugebauer balances vulnerability and honesty with power and defiance. Comfortable Curiosities searches for identity in isolation, a taste of an EP about moving on and defining a sense of self from memories. Some Assembly Required is a highlight, a heartfelt tribute to a lost friend, with Neugebauer’s full emotive range on display. Memories & You is a strong debut from an artist who has spent years honing her live performance.

We acknowledge that this event takes place on occupied Aboriginal land of the Muwinina people, and we acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to the Indigenous Elders past, present and future.

Sad Grrrls Club also acknowledge that inspiration for this event comes from Sad Girls y qué, a feminist collective with strong roots in Chicana Chola Culture. We acknowledge the history of 'sad girl' being appropriated by white feminism and wish to acknowledge the incredible power of and debt we owe to these Chicana wom*n.

A safer space is a supportive, non- threatening environment that encourages open-mindedness, respect, a willingness to learn from others, as well as physical and mental safety. It is a space that is critical of the power structures that affect our everyday lives, and where power dynamics, backgrounds, and the effects of our behavior on others are prioritized. It’s a space that strives to respect and understand survivors’ specific needs. Everyone who enters a safer space has a responsibility to uphold the values of the space.

As individuals, we are all responsible for our own actions and their consequences. There is zero tolerance for abusive, violent and hateful behaviour. Please be mindful of your own words and actions. Sad Grrrls Club events strive to be free of:
-Homophobia, Transphobia, Racism, Sexism, Ableism, Discrimination & Hate Speech
-Bullying & put downs
-Illegal/inappropriate behavior
-The usage of illicit substances on our premises and excessive intoxication on our premise
-Kicking or throwing of objects
-Abusive/threatening behaviour including verbal & physical violence
We Ask That You:
-Assess the way in which you dominate spaces; ask yourself “does my behaviour make people around me feel uncomfortable or threatened?”
-Don’t touch people without asking for their consent first
-Ask about peoples preferred pronouns. Sad Grrrls Tour is a gender diverse initiative therefore the way we address people can really affect them – use “they” and “their” as pronouns if you’re unsure. Don’t assume that a person adheres to the he/she binary.
