RIOT REVIEWS!

Sep 17, 2013

I was lucky enough to attend Riot Fest in Chicago this weekend and saw some extremely legendary Women in Rock as well as some newer acts! It was a three day music overload and I loved every minute of it… except for the nonstop rain on Sunday. Nonetheless, it was an amazing time. Here are some brief show reviews of the Women in Rock at Riot Fest! DAY...

A Match Made in Heaven: David Byrne and St. Vincent

A Match Made in Heaven: David Byrne and St. Vincent

Jul 13, 2013

Annie Clark definitely redeemed herself at this show and is back on the top of my list as one of my favorite Women in Rock. If you’ve never seen St. Vincent play guitar, you’re missing out. She can shred in the most delicate and charming way, paired with angelic vocals. David Byrne and St. Vincent are definitely a match made in heaven.

Wanda Jackson Live: Man, We Had a Party!

Wanda Jackson Live: Man, We Had a Party!

When Wanda Jackson entered the Taft Ballroom on Saturday night, I’m not going to lie, I had my doubts. She was on the arms of two men and looked so tiny!

At any point, you could spot them somewhere in The Comet; they were hard to miss with their long black hair, black clothes, black hats, pale skin and dark...

St. Vincent Shows Her New Side at Bogart’s

St. Vincent is one of my favorite musicians and let’s face it… she really is a solo act. I’ve seen her six times now and I’ve watched her evolve from literally a solo act, to having the same band for about three years, to her latest band which is mostly electronic. We get attached to our favorite musicians so sometimes it’s a bit...

Wussy Alive and Kickin’ at MOTR

Wussy Alive and Kickin’ at MOTR

Jan 22, 2012

Wussy played at MOTR Friday night and the place was completely packed despite the icy rain that plagued all of Cincinnati. Wussy has released four albums, their most recent being Strawberry which came out in October of 2011. They definitely have loyal fans; I was amazed at the number of people who knew every word to every song. Although I must admit, I do...
