Punk & Post Punk Journal

December 21, 2011

My friend Kate gave me a heads up about a really awesome-looking new journal, Punk & Post Punk. According to its website, the journal is “the first forum of its kind to explore this rich and influential topic in both historical and critical theoretical terms.”

Although Punk & Post Punk appears to be a proprietary journal, at this point in time anyone can download all of the articles from the first issue for free on the website.

Learning about this journal feels like a really special Christmas present! I’m particularly excited about an article on Gossip frontwoman Beth Ditto called “Beth Ditto and the Post-Feminist Masquerade; Or How ‘Post’ can Post-Punk Be?

Women in Music & Media

July 11, 2011

I’m aware this is rather last minute, but I just learned of a really cool event that’s taking place tomorrow (July 12th) at St. Mark’s Bookshop at 7PM.

It’s a panel on Women in Music & Media, and it features Mindy Abovitz (founder/editor-in-chief of the female drummer magazine Tom Tom, which arrives at my apartment four times a year), Emily Rems (managing editor of BUST magazine) and Shirley Braha (producer of alternative music television).
