Are you sick of tuning in to Radio Valencia on Saturday nights, expecting to enjoy “women who rock,” only to have your senses assaulted by bands you’ve never heard of like Legal Weapon, Tozibabe, and Chin Chin? We hear you! And this Saturday, from 10 p.m.-midnight, Ribbon Around A Bomb is going “poseur” for the fans. We’re abandoning all values, integrity, and musical taste for one glorious night of SELLING OUT.
Spinning all radio-friendly female-fronted “punk/rock,” this is your one and only chance to hear your fantasy retro-playlist on Ribbon Around A Bomb! Mainstream artists and bands including Blondie, Pat Benatar, the Pretenders, and Patti Smith. But wait, there’s more! We’re exclusively featuring all the most played-out jams like Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” and the Go-Go’s “We Got the Beat.”
After we’ve exhausted all the B-52s and Heart that we can handle, we’ll move on up the timeline to Liz Phair, Hole, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Finally, we’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to the Julie Ruin (featuring. Kathleen Hanna) in San Francisco, Tuesday, Sept. 17. Don’t miss it! “Generic feminist tagline, grrrl!”
Tune in for Ribbon Around a Bomb’s “Mainstream Mania” live on Radio Valencia this Saturday, September 14, from 10 p.m. until midnight.
