Tallie Fest (http://www.talliefest.org/) is an inaugural female-powered event co-produced by Brittney On Fire and Makin Waves in tribute to Asbury Park icon Tillie’s overlooked girlfriend, as well as the many talented women based in Asbury and throughout New Jersey. In Gaelic, Tallie means princess, so in tribute to her, the three-day, three-venue festival will shine a light on 22 female and female-fronted music acts as a means to raise funds for two impactful women-operated Asbury-based charities. Food for Thought feeds the homeless and hungry with a free holiday dinner on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter at Langosta Lounge and runs a food truck to raise funds for nonprofits, while employing inner-city youth. Asbury Park Women’s Convention promotes women and their rights year-round and presents an annual empowering event every March during Women’s History Month.
Tallie Fest will take place Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23 with evening performances at Langosta and Asbury Park Yacht Club and Nov. 23 and Sunday, Nov. 24 with matinees at THE SAINT. Admission at the 9:30 p.m. to midnight shows at Langosta and APYC is free, but half of the weekend entertainment budget will be donated to Food for Thought, which also will benefit from a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction for color prints of co-sponsor Eric Schiabor’s Tallie poster, and a canned food drive. Tickets for the noon to 5 p.m. shows at The Saint are $10 for 21+, $15 for 18 to 20 years old. Half of those proceeds will benefit Asbury Park Women’s Convention, as will a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction for Tallie prints, while a canned food drive will benefit Food for Thought.
