Grrrl Power Rocks

Since Lilith Fair and DIY movements like the Riot Grrrls disbanded in the ’90s, there hasn’t been much in the rock community to take their place. Testosterone-driven festivals rage on, and women get stuck with Sarah Palin. Thankfully, local music promoter Chrystal Hartigan realizes the importance of estrogen-friendly events and has put together Women Who Rock South Florida as part of her monthly Songwriter’s Showcase. The amazing line-up will consist of some of South Florida’s most rockin’ ladies like Ana Cristina, who performed at the presidential inauguration in 2005, Sol Ruiz, Lizzy Pitch, Michelle Riu, and Teri Catlin, who’s been supporting herself with music since the age of 14.

Women Who Rock South Florida, held Tuesday, will, unfortunately, be the last event at Laffing Matterz before it closes its doors at 219 S. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale for good. Admission is $5, and show starts at 8 p.m. For more information, visit, or call 954-763-5236.
