Sometime in the 1960s, in sunny Sacramento, California (US), two Filipina-American sisters got together with other teenage girls to play music. Little did they know their garage band would evolve into the legendary rock group Fanny, the first all-women band to release an LP with a major record label (Warner/Reprise, 1970). Despite releasing five critically acclaimed albums over five years, touring with famed bands from SLADE to CHICAGO and amassing a dedicated fan base of music legends including David Bowie, Fanny’s groundbreaking impact in music was written out of history… until bandmates reunite over 50 years later with a new rock record deal.
This screening will be held in tandem with a one-night-only screening of the new documentary Fanny: The Right to Rock at Screenland Armour on Oct. 4th. Learn more about Fanny at Fanny – Godmothers of Women Who Rock.
