Revolution Lady Style Now Presents: PERMANENT WAVE (Sunday 2/6 @ Death by Audio)
In November, Amy Klein, of Titus Andronicus, was angry. Not surprising for a forward-thinking female guitarist in today's male-dominated, and largely male-controlled, indie music culture. In the spirit of Riot Grrrl, Amy held a meeting at her apartment for those interested in continuing a feminist conversation put on pause in the 90s — and recently subject to unprecedented levels of historicization. Klein's group is providing a femme-punk model for the next generation; a modern manifestation of those 90s icons who inspire them.
I am way proud to be involved with said group, and the launch of its event series, Permanent Wave, this Sunday at Death by Audio. The event will purposefully take place on Super Bowl Sunday, and all proceeds from the event — music, poetry, art, food, etc. centered on issues of relationship abuse — will benefit to The Brooklyn Center Against Domestic Violence. Fuck the Super Bowl. Join the Revolution. Poster after the jump.
