Featuring Sacred Paws / Bossy Love / The Van Ts
When Scotland’s music scene exploded out of the underground and in to the mainstream in the early 80s, groups were usually all male. But a number of female Scottish bands, spearheaded by The Ettes and Strawberry Switchblade were already gaining cult status. A new documentary by musician Carla J. Easton and filmmaker Blair Young will chart the history of those women who broke the mould in Scotland, from the early girl group sound of the 60s, through 80s’ post punk new wave and the 90s Riot Grrl movement, and their struggle to gain recognition in an era where the norm was, and still is, for groups to be predominantly male.
This is a live event celebrating the music of those bands, and the new generation of musicians who are challenging the gender balance. Expect exclusive documentary clips and special guest performances with sets by SACRED PAWS, Bossy Love and The Van T's, across a riotous night of music, distortion, sweet harmonies, glossy pop and celebration of sisterhood.
