A Couple Of Ripping All-Girl Parties Were Announced Today

Electric Lady and Women: Electronic Music Showcase look awesome.

At a time when bands are actively having to pull out of shows on account of the complete lack of female representation on decent sized lineups, we figured it best to highlight a couple of excellent looking shows coming up doing the opposite.

In the interest of tackling them chronologically, first up is the just-announced Women In Electronic Music Showcase, taking place at Freda's in Sydney as part of the larger For Film's Sake Festival over a couple of spaces on Thursday April 27. First up will be a screening of a new documentary called Play Your Gender, exploring the question: "Why aren't there more female producers?"

Following the screening, the downstairs gallery will provide a platform for local Sydney artists to present a curated selection of video and installation media focused on gender and performance by local female/gender fluid artists. And once you've enjoyed some of the visual arts, it's upstairs for the aural arts, showcasing some pioneering women in electronic music, including Vetiver (previously Moon Holiday), P Twiggs, Heart People and Andy Garvey:
