A while back, we asked Alex Flanders, host of "GIRLS!"
on KABF-FM 88.3 and entrepreneur behind Crying Weasel Vintage,
to put together a playlist for us, showcasing some favorite rockers from her Thursday night radio show. What we got was a 27-track certified tutorial in rock, pop and punk made by women, not to mention further proof that women are behind some of the most inventive rock and roll being made today.
Tonight, GIRLS! hosts a benefit
for the community radio station at the White Water Tavern, 9 p.m., featuring sets from DOT, Squelch,
as well as comedy sets from Brittany Birrer
and Cortney Warner
and a costume contest celebrating historic iconic women, "musicians, scientists, artists, activists, authors," or others.
We thought we'd share some crucial tracks from the GIRLS! archives ahead of the show. If you like what you hear, listen in on Thursday nights at
8:30 p.m, and join the host, et al. tonight and dress up as your favorite historic woman.
