Will you be at CMJ? I am moderating a panel about feminism on Tuesday and shit is going to get REALLY REAL. We will discuss making shows a safer space for women LGBTQ folks, marketing by boys to boys, how NOT to write about bands, intersectionality, privilege, the constant struggle for legitimacy, and anything else we’re able to sink our teeth (and brains) into. With the goal of comforting, inspiring, and invigorating festival-goers, we also hope to show allies how to rally against industry sexism.
To represent women in the music industry, I’ve wrangled a talented crop of speakers with resumes spanning across entities such as: Warp Records, SiriusXM Radio, Riot Act Media, K Records, VICE, Noisey, Secretly Canadian, MTV, Time Out New York, DC Comics, SPIN Magazine, Distiller Promo, and Heliotropes. If you have a badge, I’d love to see you there.
Says CMJ: “A stellar panel of musicians, promoters, producers and industry figures discuss the face of feminism in the current musical climate. Coming together with diverse perspectives and industry experiences, they will explore the progress made and pinpoint room for improvement.” Panel takes place on Tuesday 10/21 @ 3:30pm at NYU’s Kimmel Ctr, 10th floor.
