Sexism in the music industry is alive and well. But it’s almost 2013, you might say. We’re more than a half-century removed from the height of ’50s paternalism. Sadly, we’re not quite as distanced from the weaker-sex mentality as we’d like to think. Whether exploring industrial music, producing or music-related subcultures, misogyny still patiently waits to be acknowledged and abolished. We chatted with Burqueña noisemakers and aural curators about their experiences with sexism in our burg. Read all about it in Burqueñas Talk Musical Misogyny.
Today is our birthday proper, and we’ll celebrate our 20th anniversary with a free party at Effex Nightclub (Fifth Street and Central).
The Alibi teamed up with local event promoters Foundation Industries, so the DJ line-up includes Digital Fusion (Mike Lowinske v. Jennifer Chafey), Amy Lopez, Joe Savage, The Rev (Timm Reynolds), Tempo (Erik Runion) and Dave Decibel.
Plus, there’s free food from Buffet King and a great big birthday cake from Cake Fetish. So come down to Effex and show Albuquerque's weekly newspaper your support.
