We can’t think of a better way to launch an event dedicated to women in the music industry than by holding it on International Women’s Day. Actually, scratch that. We can! How about naming the event ‘Badass Women’? Much better! And that’s exactly what Dublin based blog/promotor Mnásome has done.
Taking place at Drop Dead Twice – Dublin’s favourite BYOC bar – ‘Badass Women’ is a live music showcase which celebrates women in all areas of the music industry.
The event is the brainchild of local blogger Sinead Furlong, who has curated a line-up featuring some of the very best female talent Dublin has to offer. Here, she explains the angle of the event and how she went about selecting the artists.
“The aim of MNÁSOME is to celebrate women making waves in the music industry. I thought it would be fitting to have the first event on International Women’s Day to reflect the ethos of the blog and donate the proceeds to a local women’s charity, Dublin Well Woman Centre, who provide excellent women’s health services.
The line up includes Emily Jane of Vernon Jane who has long been one of my personal cheerleaders and best friends. She’s currently storming her way to success as a musician and songwriter with an amazing band in tow.
Ruth Mac, is a Dublin based singer songwriter who is an avid supporter of women in music. She’s the event co-ordinator for Women on Wednesdays at Whelans and has had many talented musicians on the line ups.
Montauk Hotel are a four piece 80s shimmer pop band. They were the first act to send music my way for review when I started MNÁSOME and show their support for the blog.”
