Women In Underground Rock show

This week's show was a tribute to the late Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex and all of the great women in underground rock. When punk leveled the stage, women like Poly, Ari Up, Debby Harry and Siouxsie Sioux were able to express themselves and their unique viewpoint, inspiring generations of women and providing a great counterpoint for "lads with guitars" that often dominate the scene. By no means does this show highlight every women worth mentioning; it's two hours of my favorites.
