New exhibit opening featuring second wave feminist musicians in South London.
Here's a blurb from the co-curator:
"Music & Liberation: Women’s Liberation Music-Making in the UK, 1970-1989, shows how feminists used music as an activist tool to entertain and empower women during the 1970s and 1980s.
I thought you may be interested in - and may be able to tell others about - this exhibition based on the online Women's Liberation Music Archive - opening 30 November in South London. Features loads of feminist musicians from the 70s and 80s, many of whom continue to play and sing and make fab music today! This will be a great trip down Memory Lane for many people - and full of discovery for others - music to listen to, photos, posters, films, events. All welcome!
A compilation CD pressed especially for the exhibition will be on sale - twenty tracks from the bands and singers of yester-yore, such as Spoilsports, Ova, Mistakes, Hi-Jinx, Frankie Armstrong, Fabulous Dirt Sisters, Stepney Sisters, Jam Today, Siren and many more. All proceeds from the CD sales will go to benefit the archive.
