Hello and welcome to the first episode of Gigs, Guitars and Gender, a podcast series about gender and the local music scenes in five cities. I’ve been working on this project for the past few weeks, and I am so excited to finally share it with all of you.
This is the first episode in a six-episode series, so make sure to follow Indientry on our site or social media and the podcast on Spotify. A new episode will be published every Saturday until the end of March, when I’ll post the sixth and final podcast – a summary and debriefing of the rest of the series – on the last Saturday to coincide with the end of National Women’s History Month.
Gigs, Guitars and Gender is a six-episode podcast series that aims to explore the role gender plays in five music scenes across the United States Midwest. Host Abby Jeffers travels to Detroit, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Columbus to talk to musicians in each city about their experiences with gender.
This episode centers on the music scene in Detroit, Michigan, and Abby met with indie rocker Stef Chura to talk tokenization, feminist punk duo GIRL FIGHT to talk representation in rock and rapper Tiny Jag to talk materialism in the Detroit rap scene.
