Tired of hearing that musicians of the last twenty years (or just the ones you like) have unprecedentedly filthy minds? Welcome to a blast-from-the-past BitchTape that speaks for itself! Track list and space for your own faves after the jump.
Wrapping up a week of sun, fun, and rocking out, here's another compilation of just a handful of performers at this year's SXSW! Stay tuned for more music, film, and interactive coverage, and thanks to Austin locals Sara Reihani and Alyx Vesey for their great recommendations! Track list after the jump.
It's South By Southwest season again, and Bitch is descending on Austin to get in on the music, film, and interactive conferences for the ten days. Stay tuned for coverage of everything from film reviews, to music interviews, to write-ups on internet drama! Plus, Bitch is co-hosting a free, all-ages, no-badge-required day party with Girls Rock Camp Austin. If you're going to be in town, stop by and say hi! Then stay for the incredible line-up of Jean Grae, Invincible, THAO, and more. Check out these artists and more on the mix below! Many thanks to Alyx Vesey, who is a rock star when it comes to rock stars!
Sometimes part of what makes a musician so compelling is the story behind them. Were the White Stripes married, or brother and sister? Would Sid have been the character he was without Nancy? Is the girl in the "Cry Me a River" video REALLY supposed to be Britney Spears? (I have strong feelings about this one because I was young and impressionable when Britters and Justin dated and broke up. But that's another post entirely.)
The same is true of Abigail Washburn. Her music is outstanding on its own, but the road she took to fame is too serendipitous not to share.
Is your knowledge of musical theater limited to the Oscar-winning adaptation of Chicago and the latest episode of Glee? Welcome to this week's BitchTapes, a collection of female-led showtunes that are not about
being hopelessly devoted to a man-type character. (Sorry, Eponine.)
