by Little Miss B, 1st Dec 2009...
When setting up The Girls Are, I envisaged our online community one day evolving from a virtual to a physical space. Gig nights, club nights, lady gatherings... For there is a distinct sparcity of lady-musical gatherings in London Town. This is still firmly a part of the plan, but imagine my surprise and JOY when coming across L*dyGarden, a new night to be hosted in Camden on Wed 2nd Dec! Tomorrow, for all of y'all who don't have a calender. Providing a "leg up for female fronted bands, performers and DJs in the London music scene", L*dyGarden is hosted by terror-trio The Witches of Eastwick and promises to be a right good'un. "Expect a heady combination of riot grrl, rockabilly, rock n roll, powerpop and party classics", not to mention live band action from Chapter24 ('Like the Slits playing psychedelic rock' according to NME). More L*dyGarden events will follow, and we at The Girls Are intend to keep you in the lady loop.
My girls and I will be attending.
Get your girls and come down too.
Remember: bring your vaginas... if you don't have one, you can find one there.
Lock Tavern, 35 Chalk Farm Road, Camden. 8pm - 12.
