Chick Fest! is a chance for women in the area’s punk and indie-rock scenes to come together in a show of support.
And what a show it is.
The nine bands on the all-ages bill well represent this young, energetic underground scene. They run the gamut of DIY styles, from hardcore and loud (Wallflower) to noise-pop and loud (Santa Mira). There is pop punk (Static Cadets) and folk punk (I Kill Cameron, Diana Regan) and straight ahead indie rock (Hot Prowl). The show kicks off with a reading by poet Anoush Ekparian.
