about

Coup Sauvage & the Snips Washington, D.C.

Coup Sauvage & the Snips aren't trying to make you dance (honestly they didn't even see you there), but you won't be able to help it. Inspired by 60’s Motown, 70’s European variety shows, 80’s Solid Gold dancers, and 90’s warehouse parties, CS & TS recall an era when artists gave you a true performance. A soundtrack for the children to watch the first-world burn. Ready? Doesn't matter. ... more

Track Name: (Don't Touch My) Hair [JD Samson Remix]
This is not an education
I can’t be your dissertation
Not an experiment, this ain’t a science fair
So don’t even think about touching my hair

Don’t touch my hair
Don’t you even dare
Don’t think about putting your hand right there

I see you there, I know you're eyeing me
Staring like I'm some great mystery
You say you’re curious, well I say child please
I’m not your Hottentot, I don’t need your scrutiny

"Oh my God, is that a weave?"
"So, like, when you perm your hair it gets straight, not curly?"
"So, do you think that I could get my hair like that?"
"I wonder what it feels like, it looks so thick and kinky!"
"I mean...isn't everyone's hair natural?"
"So, does it feel like a cotton ball?"
"Is that what they call a lace front?"
"So wait, do you think that maybe I could touch it?"
Track Name: Requiem for a Mountaintop
Right about now we want you to dance
Because in the Haus of Sauvage we always dance
We dance when we wanna celebrate
We dance when we need to mourn
And right now we wanna dance to honor the lives of those who are no longer with us
So we dance for John Crawford
We dance for Ezell Ford
We dance for Tamir Rice
We dance for Aiyana Stanley Jones
We dance for Jordan Davis
We dance for Eric Garner
We dance for Trayvon Martin
We dance for Oscar, for Timothy, for Eleanor, for Kathryn, for Amadou, for Sean
We dance for Mike Brown
We dance for every black and brown and queer and trans body that’s been told our lives don’t matter because we know they do

HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT
NO MORE STRANGE FRUIT x4

C’mon y'all keep dancing
Dance for everybody who’s not here
Dance because we are still here
We dance not just to grieve but we dance to rejoice
We are dancing for solidarity
We are dancing for our survival
From Ferguson to DC, from Oakland to NYC
We're gonna keep on dancing so that we can breathe

NO JUSTICE NO PEACE
FUCK THE POLICE x4

C’mon y'all
Keep dancing
We need you to keep on moving
Don’t stop
We can’t stop
We can’t breathe
Keep dancing
Keep fighting
We need an uprising

HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT
NO MORE STRANGE FRUIT
NO JUSTICE NO PEACE
FUCK THE POLICE x2
