For one night and one night only… Grrrl Groannn are hosting their first physical event for the launch of their zine issue 3.
The launch will be showcasing 3 hot local music acts alongside an immersive photography exhibition of selected prints from Grrrl Groannn’s infamous live music photo collection – these prints will also be up for sale too.
Zine 3 is Grrrl Groannn”s biggest yet – featuring the likes of: Big Joanie, Sofa King, Camp Cope, Body/Head, Venus, Thyla, Village Bully, Calva Louise, Hinds, Graywave, Dilly Dally, Drahla, Siksa, Aufbau Principle, and Pinky Pinky.
We hope you can join us to celebrate the representation of womxn in the music industry, from local to global scenes, and to give a big ‘fuck you’ to patriarchal attitudes that are still currently existing in all areas of the music industry.
On 27/11/2019, Geoff Ellis (director of TRNSMT’s festival had this to say in regards to their 2020 line-up: “We’d love there to be a higher representation of females but there isn’t, certainly on the acts we’re announcing today. It will be a while until there’s a 50/50 balance. That’s definitely several years ahead for any major festival to achieve because there’s far, far less female artists. We need to get more females picking up guitars, forming bands, playing in bands”.
What a dickhead. This is why we need consistent support for events and initiatives like our own to combat attitudes such as these, and move closer towards gender equality.
