All Things Lesbian Social Network Too!

New York, NY - Antigone Rising (AR) has announced the release of the brand new music video for their song “Everywhere is Home” from the popular lesbian mob comedy feature film “Alto”.

The music video dropped March 9 on the band’s YouTube channel at:

Alto is a quirky love story set in the midst of an unanticipated run-in with the NY mafia. 
It stars Diana DeGarmo, Natalie Knepp, David Valcin, Lou Martini, Jr., Melanie Minichino, and AR’s own Nini Camps.

Alto’s film producer Toni D'Antonio had produced the music video for the band’s massive hit “That Was The Whiskey”, and film director Mikki del Monico directed it.

As for the little behind-the-scenes story of the video: in the film, Diana DeGarmo sings lead with Nini Camps (who co-wrote the song with Daniel Tashian and plays best friend Kat) on background vocals.  This past month (February 2016), Antigone Rising took to the stage to sing their song, this time with Nini Camps where you can usually find her: on lead vocals. The music video uses both!

Antigone Rising continues to rise to the occasion fusing their success in the music industry with educating youth around the globe as Cultural Ambassadors to the United States Government. 

The band has successfully launched their own noprofit organization, Girl Bands Rock ( - to inspire and educate kids, especially young girls, that it's ok to think outside the box and pursue careers in non-traditional fields. They have partnered with school districts and youth centers all over the country to create innovative programming dedicated to building confidence in youth by developing leadership and creative skills through musical workshops, outreach programs and performances. 

For the all-female-boot-stompin'-alt-country-rock band ANTIGONE RISING, helping aspiring young artists while giving back to their community is something that comes second nature to a group that is helping to create music and history.

Best known for relentless touring and masterful musicianship, Antigone Rising played upwards of 280 shows a year in their early days. Whether it was an open mic on a Monday night or a jam packed New York City hometown show, the ladies and their infamous Vanna White (the band's beloved 15 passenger van) eventually blazed a trail straight to arenas alongside some of the biggest names in rock history including The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, The Allman Brothers Band, The Bangles and Rob Thomas.

It will be a weekend of high-energy performances and premieres whether singing in front of a mic or spinning records behind the turntables. World famous cover girl and super model Madison Paige is set to debut her music career at the epic lesbian event this spring.

This year the Dinah is putting an extra focus on trail-blazing female DJs with a diverse group of high-profile talent all bringing something different to the decks.

Taryn Manning, international DJ, musician and star of the Netflix hit original series Orange is the New Black. is undeniably a go-to favorite of the entertainment industry. Whether on screen, behind a mic or putting the needle on the record or on a piece of fabric, this triple threat does it all and does it impressively well.

Manning has booked gigs including high profiled events such as House of Hype's Sundance and Coachella parties, Rock The Vote Friends & Family Grammy Party, and Richard Bransons Rock The Casbah, to name a few.

Joining her are Camila Grey and Kate Moennig slated to bring their trademark tomboyish style, sexy swagger and killer turntables to the Dinah, adding their names to an already phenomenal 2016 Entertainment line-up. This will mark the first time the beloved ladies who together form The X-Names, will team up to showcase their spinning skills. 

What started as “dabbling” for this electrifying pair quickly spiraled into a DJ partnership that has been successful beyond anything they both could have ever imagined. 

Now together X-Names - who spin a blend of Indy, Deep House, Darkwave, Nuwave, Nowave, Electro, Disco, Hip-Hop, 70's and 80's - travel the world to play a variety of clubs and parties entertaining A-List clients such Stella McCartney and Amour Vert, to name a few.

These community icons are about to pack the Dinah dance floor with high voltage vibes taking the epic all-girl party to a whole new zenith. 

The five-day world-renown weekend is already making a lot of noise and is well on its way to be the most EPIC Dinah ever … you'd never seen anything like it yet!
