Culture: Sexy Badass Girl Fest At Knitting Factory, Brooklyn, New York

I love girls and I love rock music. Hence I am very happy when both joys come together. This Tuesday I enjoyed the "Sexy Badass Girl Fest" at Knitting Factory, a venue in Brooklyn, New York (knittingfactory).

It was a lot of fun to watch this fine mixture of sole performers and girl groups. Around 8pm an elf in a hippie outfit appeared on the stage: Alyson Greenfield (facebook). The  young musician accompanied her delicate songs by playing on a keyboard. It was a pleasure watching  the young musician singing & dancing and playing her keyboard.

She got replaced by Tori Sparks, an American singer/songwriter, who lives partly in Barcelona (reverbnation). She presented us a mix of songs with influences from Nashville and Spain. I liked her melodic voice and her elegant guitar play.

Then Mancie (3 girls, singing & playing guitar, supported by a male percussionist) delivered a robust rock show (.facebook).

The breaks got bridged by Kara Klenk (newyork.ucbtheatre). The New York stand up comic told us funny stories, including topics like giving or not giving wedding presents and a male who was hunted by the police for driving through Brooklyn while jerking off without an erection.

Well done, girls!.
