Been exposing myself to a lot of “alternative” artists lately. (I know, I know... I could get arrested for that.) I will, of course, be sharing interesting music here as I find it.
For instance, I’d never heard of Suffrajett, a Chicago-based band that’s down with the Black Rock Coalition (though only one member of the band – front woman Simi Sernaker – is black... and even she’s evidently mixed).
I like the video for “Anybody Listening,” off of Suffrajett’s 2007 album “Black Glitter.” The vid is below. You can see that Simi has plenty of rockr-chick appeal.
And when she whips out an electric violin, she ain’t trying to be cute. People say she can shred on that thing.
