Hey all! I'd like to share a link.
The consistently fantastic Tiger Beatdown has initiated a series of posts about women's experiences in the world of music called Ladypalooza. While even editor Sady Doyle admits it has a stupid title, it's a great platform for woman musicians to voice their experiences. And I also think the awesomeness of the blog's name cancels it the silly series title.
Tiger Beatdown: Awesome Blog Name (& much better than Tiger Beat)
Today, contributer Silvana started off the series with her post I Went To Your Concert and There Was Nothing Going On, or, A Meditation on Dude Music. A lot of her story rings true for me, and my own early experiences attempting to play in bands, and enter music-related discourse with male friends -especially the "I just don't like women's voices" part.
It's a great example of a thoughtful and justified rant, and I'm excited to follow this series and read more blog entries from different perspectives.
