“Overall the energy levels were only matched by the levels of fun at the Loud Women Xmas Grotto, a great event championing women in music through putting on great gigs with great people. I felt at home here, and you can be sure I’ll do my best to be at the next one.” read more
“a girl can get used to indie night billings that feature three or four girl-powered bands. This means that an old hack can really start to notice the ones that will melt the hearts of a wider demographic”
The incredible vibe hit you like a velvet brick as soon as you walked through the door – outrageously good music from hotly-tipped bands, innovative merch (Satan pants anyone?), and a welcoming atmosphere. read more

Review of 30 April 2016: Piney Gir | Crack Foxes | The Wimmins’ Institute | Argonaut @ The Lexington- all ages show
“This all-ages matinee show was designed to introduce kids to live music while letting their parents get out to a show without the desperate hunt for a babysitter. By the time Piney Gir took to the stage, it was already filled with balloons and face-painted youngsters. Soundcheck has never been so popular!
… it got kids engaged with live music a good decade before than they might normally discover it. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if several were inspired to take up instruments and a lifelong love of music.”

Killer Hooks A Knockout From Loud Women – 5/5
“MULTITALENTED producer and musician Charley Stone kicks off a another Loud Women event with a covers set reflecting her eclectic tastes …
Spoken-word artist Mave — a revelation — is a fresh and raw talent …
“Disco punk” Bugeye from East London are a joyful breath of musical fresh air …
The Ethical Debating Society … is a full-on barrage of killer hooks, razor-sharp riffs and shouted choruses that make the room jump and dance.
It doesn’t get any better than this.”

LOUD WOMEN … a night responsible for introducing me to a number of great bands in the last year and focuses on women in music, because, lets face it, it’s not exactly uncommon to go to a night without one female musician. (This is NOT because ‘there aren’t any’). Not only this, but LOUD WOMEN have organised a daytime gig, for those that might wish to bring their younger ones along!
