Girls To The Front Fest Preview

Somehow this is now the third year of Girls To The Front Fest. This seven-hour event will feature distros, artwork, stalls, music, and a lot of opportunities to meet other like-minded ‘pissed-off and not going to take it anymore’ women.

Christina Cassette and Ellie May of Run Into The Night are the act to see here, keep an ear out for their track ‘The Devil’s Rhythm’ with its echo-y vocals and stop-start drumming suggesting two musicians completely in control of their craft.

Sadly most of the acts performing are comprised of more men than women, with an emphasis on female-fronted bands rather than riot-grrrl style all-women ensembles. Saying that, Natalie Webster from The Drop Out Wives has a voice worth listening to, scratchy and raw with more than a hint of Brody Dalle from The Distillers. Their stand out track is ‘Straight on Through Till the Morning’, make sure you don’t go out for a cigarette during that one.
