Well, they ain't no Vixen or The Runaways, that's for sure.

Reminds me of Danitra Vance's feminist stripper character on The Pat Stevens Show.

So they're showing other women the wild side to religious oppression? You go girls!

I love their hit songs "It's fine, I'll sit in the dark" and "Would it kill you to call your mother?"

Oh, sure. Ban men from something and it's "not anti-men". Ban women from anything and they get all menstrual on you.

I don't want to hear a band whose sound is dominated by a very loud whining noise.

"a place for women to be themselves..."

My Bible class taught me that woman make it so men can't be themselves around women. So who's the real problem, huh?

This can't be legally allowed when they're performing in most venues. Bars and clubs cannot restrict men from entering based on religious grounds because the club itself isn't a religious organization. They're risking a lawsuit.

However, I can't imagine many men trying overhard to see this band, so it may never be an issue.

I used to like Kosher Pickles, but now I find them too Hasidic for my tastes.
 
2014-08-11 02:49:39 PM  
They should play the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival who have a long standing "NO MEN" policy for years...despite the fact that a great many of the attendees look like men.

Oh sweet using your weird religious beliefs as a gimmick! AWESOME!

Nickelback sort of did this first by making "music" no one wants to hear

Tori Amos was there first. No one ever listened to her unless they either had or were a complete pussy.

Man, this is going to lead to a pussy riot.

Is the festival held in a "public accomodation"?  How have they been able to get away with it legally?

Segregation and oppression is OK when the jews do it.
 
2014-08-11 03:14:12 PM  
1.  the definition of what is "rock" has really gone of the rails.

2.  they sound fat.

If they use Behringer equipment, there is no indication that they are a serious musical outfit.  Behringer is the musical electronics equivalent of Fleischmann's Vodka.  Yeah, it'll do the trick but only if you don't really care about the quality.
 
2014-08-11 03:28:23 PM  
They're no Bikini Kill.  As in I would pay to see BK.  Might not try and get into the mosh pit, but discreetly rock out from the back.

Based on the youtube video above, I think the Behringer equipment used is highlighting their talents appropriately.

Hasidic Jewish community, you say?  So they both are wearing wigs and have gigantic, never-been-groomed muffs...

Hasidic men aren't allowed to listen to women sing.  (insert "that's not really singing joke here)

/But they've been listening to that Bieber chick for a couple of years now?
 
2014-08-11 03:39:36 PM  
No one will give a shiat, not because of their anti-men stance but i saw this:

"drummer Dallia Shusterman, 40,  "


Sorry, no one wants to see a rock band of 40-year-olds females. Some established acts go on at that age and beyond and in most cases, it is a horribly sad nostalgia show. But you didnt make it yet at 40? Sorry dude (or dudette) your time has loooooooooong passed.

Not sure but they do. The only males allowed are kids and they can't be over like ten years old. They have checkpoints and everything keeping the dudes away.

LemSkroob: Segregation and oppression is OK when the jews do it.


Look, it's like this. If you belong to a group that was previously persecuted or oppressed, it's perfectly fine if you later go on to oppress others. When you inevitably begin to act the same way your oppressors did and someone cries foul to your hypocrisy you call them racists/sexist/etc, or whichever term applies. That's the way life goes.

Is there policy still "womyn born womyn" only?  Would make the checkpoints interesting.
 
2014-08-11 04:09:44 PM  

with great power comes great insanity: Meh. Bikini Kill did it already.


Bikini Kill let guys into their shows, they just asked them to let the girls come up close to the stage, and move the mosh pit further back. The latter is definitely a smart policy, the former doesn't really bother me.
