For their third episode of the Montreal Sessions, local punks Towanda keep the mic pointed squarely towards the ladies in the house. Delving into the history of ’77 punk, feminist rap, and riot grrrl they dust off some true gems and dig into how these sounds came to influence Towanda as we know (and love) them today.
Bringing things into the present day, they invite local musician and Rock Camp for Girls coordinator Heather Hardie into the studio to discuss the intersection of feminism and music culture. If we do say so ourselves, it struck the perfect mix of insightful conversation and kickass music. In case you missed it the first time around, be sure to check out the full audio here.
On today’s episode of The Montreal Sessions, Erikah and Sarah recap all the awesome highlights from this year’s edition of the camp. Listen out for interviews with the kids and some kick-ass recordings from their recent showcase concert at La Sala Rossa. You can also learn about what’s next for RCFG, like their upcoming choir program. Tune in & rock out today 3-5pm!
