Y is for… Yodeladies

I’m a chick (as you know).

I work for a band called moe. (you might have heard me mention them).

I go to rock shows.

How could I NOT dedicate my Y day to the Yodeladies?

Yodeladies is a women-led association of individuals who actively promote a friendly and safe environment for women in the moe.community.

Their name is a spin-off on an early moe. song called Yodelittle. It’s a funky little ditty with a yodel-worthy chorus of

“Yodelittle lady who, Yodelittle lady that I love”

At shows, Yodeladies will often staff a table or booth and provide local information, including important phone numbers, health and safety resources, and various sundries (condoms, tampons, etc.) that might be needed. I love seeing their smiling faces at each and every moe.down festival. They work that booth through rain, shine and while the bands play on!

They welcome the support of anyone who loves moe. and who is committed to creating a positive environment for women in the moe. community. You can find them on Facebook, Twitter, and rocking the rail at moe. shows coast to coast!

The group will return to this year’s Summer Camp Music Festival for their 7th annual season there, and will soon post a list of volunteer slots and donations needed on their page. Even if you can’t go where the Yodeladies go, you can still donate items!
