Over the past few years, the Girls Got Rhythm Fest has rightfully focused on ladies who rock, as well as carrying on the lasting legacy of women in music. While Girls Got Rhythm is taking a break this year, the spirit of the festival continues with the just announced Girl Germs Live Tribute to Women in Rock event in May at First Avenue. The show features a strong lineup of local bands who will be paying tribute to a wide array of female-driven groups from the past.
In addition to revealing the stellar lineup for Girl Germs Live, we also had a chance to ask one of the organizers of the event, Dana Raidt (who founded Girl Germs along with Sally Hedberg), about how the show came together, what process went into selecting the bands who are taking part, and how excited everyone is that Lori Barbero is going to host the event.
