Just like ma.
Even if you weren't able to contribute to this issue, we would love to have you at our assembly party, this Thursday, on June 23rd, from 7-10 at Yeti Records! We will be putting together the new issue of the zine, working on fliers for upcoming C.L.A.P. events (!), and, of course, hanging out with awesome ladies while ingesting some excellent chow and beverages. For more event details and to RSVP, check out the Facebook invite!
Thanks to our new promoter, Sheila Frankfurt (of, among other things, "Dear Sheila" fame), we will also be at these upcoming shows featuring totally rad Twin Cities lady musicians! (Note: If you want to chat with Sheila about putting together some sort of C.L.A.P. event, show or promotion, hit her up at firstname.lastname@example.org!)
Thursday, June 30th you can see the Coathangers, Gospel Gossip, Kitten Forever and Cadette at the Triple Rock for an 18+ show that starts at 8! THEN on Saturday, July 2nd (whoa), come to the C.L.A.P.-sponsored the Chambermaids, Nice Purse and Night Moves show at the one and only Kitty Kat Club (which has a happy hour that may or may not have gotten me through grad school)!
We have so many more exciting things in store for the upcoming months, but in the meantime, check out this fabulous Girl Germs podcast featuring C.L.A.P. (including music from this issue's contributors Littlefoot, STACIAN and Cadette) AND amazing GLBT artists like JD Sampson and the Gossip. Stay tuned for a summer issue C.L.A.P. GIVEAWAY through Girl Germs this week!
Luv you JD!
