I'm currently editing a fanzine to accompany my local Ladyfest (www.ladyfestcambridge.co.uk). Many of the articles are turning out kinda gloomy, more on the side of the bad aspects of the music industry and local music scenes; so I wanted to try and bring a bit more joy into the situation, cos, afterall, these things are meant to be fun.
SO, here is an open question to all you riot grrls, and I'd be really grateful if some of you would like to share your thoughts on the topic:
What's the best thing about being a girl in a music scene?
All and any replies would be appreciated! Whether you're in a band, or a promoter, or a zine editor, or a writer, or anything remotely involved with a music/arts scene. You can give more than one suggestion :)
Sorry to anyone who sees a message very similar to this in some other communities. That's probably your fault for being too riot grrl ;)
Thanks for your time!
