Gritty In Pink and Punk Rock & Paint Brushes are teaming up for an All-Girl Jam and art show extravaganza on Saturday, March 5 from 1:00-9:00pm PST at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, CA. The All-Girl Jam will feature over 50 of SoCal’s best female musicians, covering all female artists, in honor of Women’s History Month. Gritty In Pink is on a mission to achieve gender equality in the music industry, through events, partnerships, and an online marketplace. This Women’s Month event comes hot off the heels of their Black History Month livestream event with Punk Black.
The March 5 concert will feature co-headlining performances by Reverie, the legendary Latina rapper, and Philly native rapper Whitney Peyton. The All-Girl Jam will include singer/songwriter Bitch, drummer Lindsay Martin (Lilith Czar), Linh Le and Myra Gallarza (Bad Cop Bad Cop) the multi-talented producer/vocalist/percussionist Chastity Ashley (Duran Duran), Gritty ringleader Shiragirl, hard rock/metal mainstay VK Lynne (The Spider Accomplice), punk artist Xtine Reckless, emerging Tik Tok singer/songwriter Maya Karli, musical director Lex Wolfe, singer and visual artist Beebs, and many more! DJ sets from Lotus, Stacey Dee (Bad Cop Bad Cop), and Mama Troy (widow of Sublime’s Bradley Nowell) will provide a soundtrack to the day.
The event will be sponsored by Guitar Girl Magazine, Cool Cat Wine, Drew Martin, Female Rockers, and Gritty In Pink’s new marketplace for women in music, INPINK. The indoor/outdoor event will be free entry, with the Jam starting at 5 PM. The outdoor space will feature a Punk Rock & Paintbrushes all-women art exhibit of 16 artists, including Soma Snakeoil, Lisa Brownlee, and Chloe Trujillo (wife of Metallica’s Rob Trujillo).
The event will also feature artisans, merchandise booths, and drink specials. Those who attend will have the opportunity to win musical gear prizes by signing up as a new user on INPINK.com.
