Being a great female artist means sharing experiences in a way that audiences can personalize. As opposed to being a star with an appearance and convictions as plastic as a child’s doll, many independent female artists bear their souls on stage to create an authentic connection. In Nashville’s great cultural awakening, people are rejecting the marketing schemes and gender stereotypes of “stardom”; instead demanding original music from talented women. It is because of this movement that these artists are facing a bull market.
A question then: If we’ve got great talent and a hunger for local music, where is the platform for those changing the scene? Bringing her own source of light to the stage, Lady E and the Black Light’s Erica Dilanjian would like to show you what these ladies are really made of. Dilanjian’s Ladies of Rock event at The East Room is working to bring masculine and feminine elements together with a night of powerhouse performances. It’s a raw showcase that rejects sexualized economic filters by supplying fresh players to the music game. It’s an impressive move that focuses on the whole audience instead of catering to a niche.
Her April 7th showcase features Kelly Ruth, French Lips, The Dead Deads, and of course Lady E & The Black Light. So, set a reminder to head over to The East Room around 8pm to check it all out for a mere $5. You can find out more about all the acts below.
