    Sarah Greenwell of Gymshorts

    Sarah Greenwell, frontwoman of Gymshorts, loves telling jokes. In fact when she was little, her mom would take her to the local bowling night, “I was a tiny blonde girl that would tell dirty jokes to all the old men.” Meeting Sarah this past March I was immediately amused by her goofy jokes and band of similarly light-hearted guys. Gymshorts was formed in 2012 with lead guitarist, Devin Demers. “We wrote songs and tried to find a band for a year.” Sarah was living in New York and commuting to Providence, RI for the band. “I like driving and some of the songs I wrote came from the commute.” In…

    I Got It From My Mama

    I started thinking about something this morning and now I can’t stop. I know  A LOT of female musicians right now. It’s really great and I’m sure this is the most Cincinnati has ever had. With that being said, I’ve seen a lot of social media posts of girls talking about their dads’ musical influences, whether it’s them playing their guitars or being involved in the music industry, etc. I, myself, am guilty of this. I play some of my grandpa’s cymbals and I think its so cool! I’m a fourth generation drummer! But here’s my question, where are the girls that have inherited instruments from their moms? They have…

    Meeting Joan Jett

    Well something very special happened to me on my recent family vacation to France! We were in the NYC airport for like 9 hours waiting for our flight to Nice, France. I was deeply engaged in my book when my dad came over to me and said, “Hey look, its an old punk band!” I looked up and there were a bunch of darkly clad punks at our same gate at the airport. He pointed out the women and said, “I think she’s the front women.” I looked at her and said, “Joan Jett.” And then I thought NOOOO it can’t be! How crazy! I kept trying to study her…

    Introducing… AVID NOISE!

    Have you wondered where I’ve been lately? Why I haven’t been posting as much? Well, I am beyond excited to introduce to you AVID NOISE!!!! Along with being obsessed with music, I love vintage clothes. I’m quite a clothes horse, I must admit and realized I had some great things I wasn’t wearing. I thought, maybe I should start selling these clothes. Well I also love Etsy. I decided I would open my own vintage store on Etsy but I wanted to do something different. I’ve always wanted to tie Women in Rock into some business aspect and never could decide what venture that would be. Then it hit me….…

    Pretty Things I Found at the Country Music Hall of Fame

    I just returned from a four day vacation in Nashville, Tennessee and in case you were worried, the legacy of country music lives on! The place is filled with live music, many I’m happy to report, were female! While I was there I had the opportunity to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame. I met some new friends and saw beautiful items belonging to some old friends. I thought I would share with you all. First, I met Cindy Walker, who was one of country music’s first professional female songwriters. Most notably, she wrote “Bubbles in My Beer” and “You Don’t Know Me,” the latter recorded by Ray Charles…

    Southgate House Announces Closure

    Well it is a sad day indeed. The Southgate House has announced that their last show will be held on December 31, 2011. While they haven’t stated the reason for their closure they did post to Facebook, “We look forward to opening our business in a new location soon.” There have been so many amazing shows there over the years and many memories I wouldn’t trade for anything. Some favorite shows I’ve seen there include: St. Vincent, The Raveonettes, The Customs reunion show, and The Black Angels. Comment below with favorite shows you’ve seen or memories you’ve had there. The Tri-State area is in for a great loss.
