New Riot Grrrl Night in London

Some forward-thinking Grrrls are putting on a grrrl friendly club night in North London tomorrow.

Lydia, from Swimsuit Issue, and Laura, from These Words Are All I Have Sleater-Kinney reference love it, are putting on a 'grrrl safe' club night that focuses on grrrls that make sweet music and grrrls that love to listen to sweet music.

Girls Germs is a grrrl-tastic night of music, zines, cakes and dancing. Everybody who comes gets a free cupcake and a chance to buy zines from the fantastic We Are Words And Pictures zine stall. We’ll be playing le tigre, Bratmobile, Sleater-Kinney, The Slits, The Kills, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bikini Kill, M.I.A. and plenty of other amazing tunes by amazing grrrls. It’s going to be a celebration of women’s creativity, proof that girls making music is more than
just a faddy trend.

The cool thing about this night is that misogynistic lyrics are not allowed so I can yet again make it through another day without running into Akon's 'Smack That' or the collaboration with David Guetta that resulted in 'Sexy Chick' and the memorable line "I'm trying to think of something to say without being disrespectful", just awful.

This night has everything I need in the world cool grrrls, amazing music, news zines, hand drawn flyer's and cake. If you ever need me to be somewhere promise cake.
