The 1990s in Music – Women Bring It! (via Jukebox Heroines)

25 Mar

Ahhh, the 90’s…

So, the post asks for more women in 90’s music… What 90’s MusicChicks can you add to the list???

Off the top of my head I got… Poe, Taylor Dayne, Gloria Estefan, Adina Howard, Veruca Salt, SWV, Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star)… I can’t remember if any of them were already named… But there you go… A few more for ya! : )

The 1990s in Music - Women Bring It! The Sound Opinions radio show is quite awesome. They have covered various artists that I love including Chrissie Hynde, The Vivian Girls, and Janelle Monae. Now, the show is called "Sound Opinions" so, it's a show featuring the things the hosts Jim & Gregg like.

CMF’s FingerOnThePulse is going to SXSW!

8 Mar

So, CMF followers, remember how I promised to fill you in on some of what we have been working on, well… ChickMakesFlicks was invited to come to a press mixer to talk to some really cool up and coming bands down in Austin, at the South by Southwest music and film festival!

I don’t know about you, but we here at CMF think that is pretty freakin’ awesome! And we are super excited!

Fingeronthepulse will get to interview designer and trend setter Jac Vanek as well as the founder of To Write Love On Her Arms, Jamie Tworkowski.
In case you don’t know what TWLOHA is, here is the mission statement from their website:
To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.  TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.
There are 10 bands Fingeronthepulse will get to interview! They’re from all across the country, and they all sound really cool. Lovebettie, is the only band with a chick in it at this event; but between MusicChick Alexandra Naples of Lovebettie, ChicChick Jac Vanek and Jamie Tworkowski from TWLOHA, I think there may be just enough Awesome & BadAssChick to give all the guys a run for their money! Here is a list of some of the bands: O’ BrotherDeath On Two Wheels, & Playing Dead. To see the rest of the bands in attendance, you will have to wait for Fingeronthepulse‘s blog post! So check back in with ChickMakesFlicks!!!
