Phew! I’m back on the violin grind after a long hiatus from classical music. Challenging myself this season to move away from self taught bluegrass antics of my fiddle and mandolin towards revisiting the classical training I’d had for about 15 years prior. Rehearsals have been really fun and our next performance is at Symphony Space on the Upper West Side, February 12th, 2016.

Mom: I need you to draw me a picture of a nude Man and Woman, preferably in charcoal or graphite- in long strokes- I have a reference image.
Me: o.O Say what?
Mom: I need it for my bathroom remodel, the artwork I found in the store is $95, I know you can do it.
Me: And what makes you think I’d charge you any less?
Here in NYC the doom is real. The slow, grinding pace of rolling sludge metal has taken over many parts of Brooklyn’s underground metal scene, and is the perfect space to be in for Halloween.
Below are some of the top female lead bands in the game, ranging from doom and gloom to death, black and hardcore metal. Most of these bands have lasted more than a decade and show the power of femme vocals. We can get metalheads moshing and headbanging as hard as any male group can. Recognize! If you know of other bands, especially #woc related, comment below and let us know. m/
Flyleaf always had a great variety, they’ve since moved on but were under-appreciated in my opinion.
