In this day and age, it’s not hard to find and discover incredibly influential female musicians. This is the point where I direct you to a show that just so happens to feature a handful of ’em.

Canadian punk band White Lung is playing a show with Wax Idols and REDREDRED at the Rickshaw Stop on July 22.

The band has introduced Hether Fortune into the lineup to play bass, which further brings us to the fact that…

Wax Idols is playing! Featuring Fortune as frontwoman du jour, the band is perfect for the person that romanticized the golden age of 4AD, but was looking for something a little more updated.
