Enjoy this bonus episode of the Colin’s Punk Rock World podcast, celebrating International Women’s Day 2021.
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2020, the team from Colin’s Punk Rock World (one of our favourite punk rock blogs) put together a special podcast including Sarah Shout Louder and Katie MF as guests.
We had a poignant conversation about safety at gigs, role-models (or lack thereof), positives and negatives of the female experience in the DIY music scene, and how things have changed for the better in recent years.
We’ve uploaded it to the Shout Louder podcast feed as a special audio treat for you. You can also listen to it over at Colin’s Punk Rock World, on Spotify, or watch the video on YouTube.
I promise normal Shout Louder podcast service will resume soon!
Introducing the bands playing Do It Together Fest this weekend, including music videos, fun facts and recommended reading.
Do It Together Fest is a celebration of the DIY punk rock community, which we’re hosting alongside our friends Be Sharp Promotions and Colin’s Punk Rock World on 24-25th January 2020.
Sat in a beer garden last summer, I stumbled on the idea of putting on a London weekender (an evolution of Shout Louder Fest in 2019)… a flurry of WhatsApp messages and not a lot of thought later, we’d planned the whole thing.
Paul, Colin and I all have our birthdays over the same two weekends so, rather than competing, we’ve clubbed together to create this shindig. We’ve invited our mutual favourite bands to play, and we’re giving a platform to other promoters by offering stalls to labels and zines. I’m even making PAPERCUTS (our community themed book) to tie in with the event.
