We’re entering a time of ’90s nostalgia….and that means plenty of Riot Grrrl recapping. You know, Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, Team Dresch, Bratmobile, ect. But what about now? Where have all the grrrls gone? Who’s out there raising hell, standing up, refusing to be silent? Where can you find powerful female role models, speaking up for their rights, breaking the mold and doing things outside the box in 2011?
Well, thanks to the magic of tagging on Band Camp, I have found a few artists that I think carry the torch for Grrrls of the 21st Century. I am happy to introduce to you: The Cathy Santonies, QueenBee, Catherine Elms, the ovens, Räuberhöhle, Doll Fight!, Demimonde Slumber Party, and Lipstick Homicide.
Revolution Grrrl Style NOW!

Ainjel Emme releases her sophomore effort “Everyone Is Beautiful.”
Hard Rock guitarist Aingel Emme (Whole Lotta Rosies) channels her inner femme with folk influenced ballads and the longings of a woman’s heart. “Undone” is my favorite track. P.S. If you want to see some cool lyrical art, check out her lyrics page. It’s so riot grrrl.
Zowie – Dance with attitude! Ow!
Australian Electro musician, Zowie takes no prisoners with her pop tunes and dark persona. She’s up and coming fast, with goth-glam and enough hooks to lure any listener in.
