FeelingAnxious PR has partnered with Bust Magazine and Modern Vintage Recordings to celebrate women in music. The Women Rock! showcase will be held on Thursday, July 14th from 8pm-1am at Public Assembly in Brooklyn.
The event is FREE and includes performances by:
Ghostwise – 8PM – Ghostwise was initially intended to be guitarist/vocalist Kerry Kennedy’s solo project but quickly grew to include a community of like minded musicians. An ever evolving cast of characters, the Williamsburg based band creates dark country/folk/rock.
Emily Zuzik – 9PM- A prolific singer/songwriter, rocker and sought-after collaborator, Emily Zuzik “mixes the urgent intensity of Ani DiFranco and Tori Amos with the easy cool of Kim Gordon,” (Performing Songwriter Magazine). She was recently featured on Moby’s album Destroyed and has just released her seventh studio album, The Wild Joys of Living.
Misty Boyce – 10PM- Singer, pianist and songwriter Misty Boyce has taught piano in Chinatown, overseen the music program at a mega Church in Ohio, studied jazz piano in a Cincinnati conservatory, and grown into one of the best singer-songwriters on the fertile New York scene. Her impressive self-titled debut album is a deeply affecting document of an artist defining who she is through her music.
Claire London – 11PM- With a rock and roll edge and a powerhouse voice, Claire London combines deeply personal lyrics with haunting melodies, distorted bass lines, and bluesy rock and roll on her debut album, Like A Machine, set for release this fall. London’s intriguing personal aesthetic (a mix of haute couture and the Mad Hatter) is as unique as her sound, with musical influences ranging from Led Zeppelin to Portishead to The Black Keys, with a little Nine Inch Nails and Nina Simone in between.
Lisa Jaeggi – 11:30PM- Sweet and soulful, spiritual and tranquil, 26-year-old Lisa Jaeggi’s blend of folk, hip hop, soul and pop showcases her exceptional talent as a lyricist and poet. Her themes range from melancholic narratives splashed with religious and political observations to carefully constructed thoughts about city life. Accompanied by an acoustic guitar, her words express a raw power that often resonates louder than the soft and intentionally sparse production of her songs.
