REVENGE OF GRRRLS ON FILM
LOYOLA MARYMOUNT UNIVERSITY
MARINA DEL REY, CA
14 SEPTEMBER, 2019
A scenic diversion to Marina Del Rey, on the campus of Loyola Marymount University, provided our weekend action with Revenge of Grrrls On Film, the followup to 2016's Grrrls On Film Festival. This edition kicked off with a screening of the Gina Burch/Helen McCookerybook documentary, Stories From The She Punks, setting the table for a panel discussion moderated by Evelyn McDonnell (Women Who Rock, LMU faculty), featuring Vivien Goldman (whose Revenge of the She-Punks  serves as a launch pad), plus Alice Bag (The Bags, Violence Girl), Sandra Iszadore (Fela Kuti) and Drew Arriola Sands (Trap Girl). The night culminated with a showing of Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains.

Rosie Tucker Steps Out

HI HAT, LA
08 MARCH 2019

Rosie Tucker held court at the Hi Hat, hosting a show that served as an album release party for Never Not Never Not Never Not, (out now on New Professor)Spurred on by a hometown crowd, Tucker boasted a tight backing band that brought the LP's songs to life, and made the packed club feel like a small dinner party. She showed her command from the off, stringing out the intro of "Gay Bar', pausing to take it all in, then dropping into the first line. "Fault Lines" and "Real House Music" stood out, and mid set, Tucker took a few songs solo, with "Icebergs" visibly melting the audience. Coming between SF's Noise Pop and the looming shadow of SXSW, (let alone a tour), Tucker''s Hi Hat show proved a vital respite in the middle of upcoming chaos. Support for the evening was provided by locals Ruby Throated and Rett Madison, with the West Virginia native showing off a huge voice and songs from an LP due in the fall, providing an early evening highlight with "Flea Market".
