Femme fest of music

Diana Anaid is set for a big year with a live CD (recorded in Nimbin), her fourth studio album nearly ready, and playing (in her passionate way) at Meow to the Moon this Saturday.

This Saturday, January 6, Coorabell Hall will fill with the creative talents of 14 female-led bands and solo artists from all over northern NSW and southern Queensland. Meow to the Moon is a one-day festival of feminine musicality and runs from 2pm until 1am.

There is an abundance of amazing female artists in our region and the event will recognise their musicianship, said organiser Felicity Burdett (from The Love Bus). It will be a day and night for us to come together and perform in the beautiful setting of the Byron Bay hinterland.

The line-up for this celebration of female creativity is impressive with Diana Anaid, Bertha Control, The Love Bus, Aurora Jane & Massive Change, Natalie Gay, Scarlett Affection, Sara Tindley, Ladybird, Hussy Hicks, Chik Flik, Kim Sheehy Band, Katherine Cooper, Nikki Martin and Nyssa Berger. Definitely some of the best talent (female or not) on the east coast.

Therell be chai and food available on the day. Tickets are $20 at the door. For more info visit

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
