We can’t let boys have all the fun!

Girl rockers ruled the roost in the 80s, but these days sweet singer-songwriters are hogging the airwaves! But too much sugar makes you sick! Where have all the girl rockers gone?

They’ve gone underground! Scratch the surface of the local scene and for every Deja Voodoo there’s a Foamy Ed, for every ElemenoP there’s a Jonnie Rose, and for every Blindspott there’s Cherry‘s Gemstones.

Come to GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!, and find out for yourself how flourishing the girl rock scene really is.

Joyrider revs up for 2007

Joyrider began when Jonnie Rose bass player, Kathryn van Beek, realised that there are a lot of great bands out there who slip through the cracks of the industry. Kathryn decided to put on high-profile, well-publicised, no-budget gigs for these bands. Joyrider’s ‘Tsunami Rock’ gig (headlining The D4) raised $4000 for the Red Cross, and Kathryn has gone on to produce other events such as ‘Psychedelic Freakout’ with Rock and Roll Machine.
