Our Featured Goddesses this week:
The Surfrajettes - Hailing from Toronto, ON, Canada, The Surfrajettes are a four-piece instrumental combo that came together in 2015. Their unique sound blends elements of psychedelic rock and surf music. These retro-chic ladies rock bee-hive hairdos and groovy go-go boots. Members include guitarists Shermy Freeman and Nicole Damoff, bassist Sarah Butler, and drummer Annie Lillis.
boygenius - What started as mutual admiration between the individual members blossomed into a genuine friendship, and ultimately, the formation of the band in 2018. Their latest release, "The Record," is a full studio album that just hit the shelves on March 31, 2023. Members: Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus.
Birtha - American rock band from Los Angeles, active from 1967 to 1975. Following their stint with The Ladybirds, Chele and Rosemary came together to form Birtha. All members of the band were accomplished musicians and vocalists and each contributed lead vocals and harmonies. The band made a name for themselves playing in clubs up and down the West Coast, from California to Alaska. They even had the opportunity to tour with legendary bands like The Kinks, Fleetwood Mac, and Three Dog Night, among many others. Members include Shele Pinizzotto on guitar, Rosemary Butler on bass, Sherry Hagler on keyboards, and Olivia "Liver" Favela on drums.
