"Nothing beats a blue Monday quite like a musical genre-bender, feminism and a cozy Greenpoint piano bar"
How many incredible shows have you attended where the line up is 100% male? We don't tend to think about it, because that is not the point. The point is (and will always be) the MUSIC. Having a 100% female lineup for a show, and seeing people leave the venue smiling, talking about the quality of the music (and not about how it was all female), seeing them dance, and then shedding light to the fact that it was all female is so important — and so powerful. It reminded me that we are all stronger together, and that there is really nothing that compares to the power of a group of women working together.
