Yep that’s right, there’s a Ladyfest Auckland 2008 on the horizon…probably around late february, so keep your eyes peeled and your hearts hopeful, cos girl and queer music is not dead in this city, contrary to popular belief and certain “indie” circles.
Expect the usual amazing whirlwind weekend of all your hopes and dreams, and if you wanna get involved, then maybe you should email me on this website!
In the meantime, The Gossip!! Sonic Youth!! er, that’s it I think…though I have been out of the loop for a while.
Right now I am reading: Riot Grrrl Revolution Girl Style Now, put out by Black Dog Publishing, review to come, and soon you will be able to buy it online at Cherry Bomb Comics www.cherrybombcomcis.co.nz. It’s particularly interesting if you are into the lesser-documented British Riot Grrrl scene, as it discusses it in a lot more detail than I’ve ever read…but I’ll say no more for now, until I finish the book…
