Rocking Out, No Boys Allowed

by Robbie Brown
The New York Times
July 14, 2012

ATLANTA — Asha Crews had never played a guitar before this week. But on Wednesday, she took the stage in her favorite Michael Jackson shirt, strummed a few chords and shouted, “One, two, three, four!”

Then her band, Rainbow Unicorns, began to rock, playing an angst-ridden song that sounded like early ’90s grunge. “It’s all complicated, I feel so frustrated,” sang the four girls, ages 10 to 13.

This was not a standard garage band. For one, the members had picked out instruments two days earlier. For another, the jam session ended when a supervisor called, “Ladies, it’s snack time.”

The band formed at Girls Rock Camp in Atlanta, which teaches 10- to 16-year-old musical beginners to bang drums and windmill guitars like their rock heroes. The five-day camp has a simple message: Girls rock too. In a genre long dominated by men, the founders want campers to feel as comfortable being loud and expressing themselves on stage as many boys do...



 



I'm glad the girls are having fun but this whole type of thing perpetuates a gender divide where none needs to exist. Why a Girls Rock Camp instead of a Kids Rock Camp made up of an equal number of girls and boys? For those wanting gender equality (of which I am one) programs like this make a point of separation. Unlike athletics neither gender has an innate advantage (meaning physical bodynstrength) when it comes to musical talent, playing and enjoyment.



And yes there are more male rock stars than female but that does not mean there is a dearth of female rock/pop stars.



In the end it is fun and good for the kids but the article's tone reinforcing gender inequality does no good.



OK let the bullets fly.

I have always had a crush on Charlotte Gainsbourg ever since the first time I saw her portraying Jane Eyre{#Hearteyes}; I usually don't even watch movies like that (chick flicks{#Wink}) but could not take my eyes off of her and ended up watching the whole thing even putting up with William Hurt for an hour and a half or so{#Stop}. Anyhoo, not only do I find out she does music, but amazingly!{#Clap} I have been hearing her in rotation on WUSC, but DJ Otto Mayshun never puts up his playlist.  I love him anyway even though being a robot, he does not love me back{#Cry}. So I think, who is this? Finally they play one of her tunes on a live show where they update the running playlist; I see the name, but don't put 2 and 2 and all that; till I finally get around to getting some of her stuff from her 2009 release IRM; {#Notworthy}

Cool, yea I have not listened to Joni's later stuff. I am just not really into that genre of slow folksy female singers. The only slow folksy type of music I like is Americana, Alt country which is usually dominated by male singers. Glad to hear from another Yoko fan though! {#High-five}

The comparison is made a lot actually. I think it's because:
1 - They're the same generation
2 - They're both women
3 - They both started out as "Folk Singing, Coffee House Guitar Chicks"
4 - Joni's early vocal style was deliberately high-pitched and "Folky" similarly to Joan's natural voice
5 - 90% of music listeners have only ever heard her pre-'74 work (usually Blue, Court & Spark and For The Roses or Ladies Of The Canyon) . She finally quit trying to sing soprano by the time she made The Hissing Of Summer Lawns.

And I like Yoko too. {#Nyah}

Agreed, but you have to admit they have similar singing styles and voices. I think that is where the comparison lies.

Shrill has too often been the fallback reason disliking female singers. actually, Baez isn't that shrill either. Yoko? now you have shrill.
