FemmeFest, now in its second go-round, features increased diversity, both in terms of its musical lineup (hip-hop, noise-rock, electronica and more are represented) and its outside offerings (an evening of film and a series of educational workshops), which were incorporated, in part, to open up the fest to those outside the music community. As in its inaugural year, all profits will be donated to charity (this year's beneficiary is the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization, or BRAVO for short). Here are a handful of events we're looking forward to seeing, and be sure to visit femmefest.com for a full roster of happenings around town.

A film component, dubbed Cinema Outsider, is the most recent addition to FemmeFest. Taking place one night only - Sept. 4 at 400 West Rich - the event features a selection of short films curated by Alexis McCrimmon and created by queer, trans and non-binary people of color.

The steady-rising Dominque Larue, who recently made her local debut alongside Heresy (a newborn, pass-the-mic fantastic foursome featuring Larue, Monie Love and others) headlines an evening of hip-hop at Spacebar with similarly skilled wordsmiths like Nes Wordz and Copywrite.

Primal sounds will reign supreme when the Ferals (ideally named, for what it's worth) teams with similarly savage guitar-noise purveyors like Raw Pony, Trachete and Skurt for an evening of music at the Summit. Bonus: dip next door to Café Bourbon St. between sets to catch turns from the likes of Melted Man (on at 10:30 p.m.) and the incomparable Jacoti Sommes (12:30 a.m.).
