This One!!

If you're astute and followed this blog for a while you may have noticed that a couple of all woman bands from Asia featured in the form of Taiwan's BB Bomb and Japan's Thug Murder. The Gaia were an all female Japanese band that were knocking around in the mid 90's. They made their way over to the States and played Gilman Street(which is a legendary venue due to weighty fanzine status but probably a shithole that's actually no different to many other venues) and recorded a few live songs on this half studio album. Anyway the Gaia play speedy ripping punk rock which really should be heard by everyone interested in such things. It's a shame there's not to much info around about these girls.

It's this one!

924 Gilman is a member run collective and that is what makes it unique to most other venues in the states. That and the fact that they don't book any bands affiliated with major labels. Where else does this exist in the rest of the country?

I don't know. I'm not based in the States and don't really know much about the venue other than what I've read.

There are similar venues run the same way outside the states.
