Tumblr has announced plans for an all-female power bill at SXSW headlined by R&B artist Jhené Aiko, whose 2014 release “Souled Out” was a cauldron of swirling watercolor emotion. Also on the bill for the Tumblr showcase are Empress Of, the solo project of Hondruan-American artist Lorely Rodriguez and fierce British rapper Little Simz. Feminist punk crew Tacocat rounds out the bill.

The showcase will also feature an appearance from Texas politician and former gubernatorial candidate, Wendy Davis.
