What we're about

For ladies of Bristol and beyond who enjoy the rockier side of gigs and want to find other women who are equally into music and also as awesome. If you look forward to the whimsical arse cover each year in the John Lewis ad this may well not be the group for you. Although, of course, it’s a totally inclusive group. Come as you are as they say.

I’ve got a fair few men folk that I go to gigs with but am looking for some like minded women to do the same. Maybe with a few cider or gins afterwards for good measure. Festivals in the UK and overseas would also be great. I missed out on Rock Werchter in Belgium last year (with my dream line up; Pearl Jam, QOTSA, Jack White to name a few) due to lack of music loving people to go with. I’ve no issue going to gigs, or travelling alone but a whole weekend at a festival would have just been a bit pants.

If this takes off I hope other people will just add gigs too. Let’s see how it goes?!

CASH - Paying respect to the Man in Black

O2 Academy

For someone who says she doesn't do cover bands the last two gigs I've listed have been just that. I will justify by clarifying my position on cover bands, they have to be a) dead or b) no longer touring. Which is fine for this and Kate Bush! I saw Cash last time he was in Bristol on it was great. Hopefully someone will want to come too! Tickets on sale here https://academymusicgroup.com/o2academybristol/events/1209852/cash-tickets More about the act here https://www.cashbandlondon.co.uk/

The Hu

SWX

The HU is a band from Mongolia that blends heavy metal and traditional Mongolian throat singing. Their first two videos (“Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem”) immediately went viral garnering the band over 18 million views. The explosive reaction to The HU resulted in a number of features about the band in international media such as NPR, ET India Times, Playboy Mexico, Jack Canal+Fr, Hong Kong 01, DW News Germany and others. The band’s name The HU, is the Mongolian root word for human being. They call their style “Hunnu Rock”…inspired by the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire, known as The Huns in western culture. Some of the band’s lyrics include old Mongolian war cries and poetry. Here are a couple of links to videos to give you an idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jM8dCGIm6yc&list=RDv4xZUr0BEfE&index=2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4xZUr0BEfE&list=RDv4xZUr0BEfE&index=1
