Emily Williams of Axis Evil and Genderpunk.net on her trans experience and cultural appropriation (GRRL031)

Emily Williams and I talk about her music project Axis Evil--some weird time signature drum stuff, some weird guitar stuff, a sitar she bought in India, along with some very, very personal lyrics; navigating her trans-ness and her woman-ness thru the lenses of her science and engineering background at her blog Genderpunk.net; and being a token minority. The interview was recorded early 2017, when she had just recently released her album City of God. Since then, she's released a second album Light Me Up and Love the Bomb in September of 2017, and she continues to release new material.

Danielle Leonard of Topshelf Records on running a house venue & DIY label (GRRL030)

I met Danielle at the SD Women Music Industry night last year and was intrigued with her work running a DIY record label in Savannah, Georgia where she attended SCAD. She now works for San Diego-based Topshelf Records. In this interview we talk about the ups and downs of running a house venue, her DIY label Bomb Shelter Records, and one way to foster safety in the music scene. A warning in relation to our discussion on a safe scene: we talk about PWR BTTM as one example of a band fighting for safe spaces. Unfortunately, since the interview, Ben Hopkins has been accused of sexual assault. For more info and resources, check further down in the show notes. Thank you to Danielle Leonard (and Marty!) for chatting with me and to all the artists for permission to use their song on the podcast. And thank you to The Fresh Brunettes, who are providing their song "Best of the Worst" as the new Grrl on Grrl theme song! You can find their albumFouled Up Beyond All Recognition on CDBaby.

GRRL026: Femme punk, misconceptions, and song inspiration, with the Fresh Brunettes

This episode of Grrl on Grrl features Aleisha and Alexis of San Diego "femme punk" band The Fresh Brunettes. Their bassist Paul was also in the room, but didn't say much, as bassists are wont to do, and Fresh Brunettes' dog mascot Cosmo also graced us with his presence. Besides the amazing songs from Lisa Prank, Soft Lions, the Candelights, you'll hear Alexis and Aleisha talk about preconceived notions of what a guitarist or drummer should look like, some inspiration for their songs, and what they appreciate when interacting with their audience.
