I Need A Life

So, Born Ruffians made my Canadian Music Fest. I caught them live on Sunday night at The Phoenix and wow. It was no wonder the crowd of teenage girls were screaming and shouting, "Buddy Holly" as the singer/guitarist definitely has that appeal. Other CMF mentionables include; Cut Throat Britva, Think About Life, Metz and The Leathers*.

*ok. I didn't actually get to see The Leathers at either of their CMF shows but know they would have topped my list of highlights based on the fact that they have kicked my ass with amazing every time I've seen them.

Happy International Women's Day

I waited a little too long to post my blog today, and as a result missed International Women's Day. But while this is coming to you a day late, know that it took me the whole day to narrow it down to three youtube videos. I'm posting three female bands that knew how to rock n' roll and didn't just follow the boys. 

The Slits - Typical Girls

Bratmobile - What's Wrong With You?

and of course,
The Runaways - Cherry Bomb
