Public Universal Friend is an Indianapolis-based art rock band fronted by singer-songwriter Jody Galadriel Friend. After a decade-plus solo career, Friend released the album Perennials under the PUF name in March 2021, soon after coming out publicly as a trans woman. Her songwriting style has roots in emo and post-punk as well as Appalachian roots and spiritual music, with a unique lyrical perspective of identity, faith and gender-expansive existence. The live band, which can include up to seven members, has been heard on WFYI radio and IndyGo’s Music in Transit web series.


Tickets are pay-what-you-can with a $5 minimum, or register above for the livestream (pay-what-you-can with $0 minimum)!
