Bitch is a singer who plays electric violin, bass, ukulele and keytar. She recently launched her new project, BEACH, which she describes as indie-electro rock fronted by her electric violin. On stage, an Alligator triggers beats on what they call “the machine” Together, they make hopeful, sometimes funny and poetically serious dance-y rock.
Born Karen Mould, this artist started studying classical violin at 4, and later expanded her musical horizons by studying fiddling with Andrew Bird. Her band, Bitch and Animal, toured with Ani DiFranco in the U.S. and Europe and released two albums on Righteous Babe Records.
She starred as Bitch in the John Cameron Mitchell film Shortbus, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. The artist went on to release her first solo album Make This Break This on Kill Rock Stars. In 2008, she started her own label, Short Story Records and released an ep B+TEC! with her Brooklyn-based rock trio Bitch +The Exciting Conclusion, produced and released an album for Ferron called Boulder, and recently completed a new documentary and album for Ferron.
Bitch’s songs have been featured on Showtime’s The L Word.

“Bitch is an indie hero known for her fierce fiddling and political fire.” Time Out, NY
Opening the show, Diana Chittester holds the stage on her own without the use of gimmicks or gadgets, her performance simulates the sound of multiple guitarists playing at once. Her unique blend of swift finger-picking, intricate strumming combined with an array of alternate and open tunings, enables her guitar to speak to the listener. Not afraid to address controversial topics, Diana’s lyrical content examines sexual encounters, the politics of religion and the affects of paternal influences. Diana’s performing style has earned her a comparison to the accomplished Lindsay Buckingham and Ani DiFranco with a lyrical edge that provokes the title an ‘up-and-coming’ progressive, indie, folk artist.
