I am loving the concept of Rock The Belles, a collective that will be bringing together the hottest female DJs, bands, designers and creatives for a genre-defying monthly celebration of the girls who are making their mark on the music industry. (Sidebar: yes I know Girlcore have done it for a while, but I like that someone else is doing it too. More the merrier innit).
The first sesh is on 28 Jan at the East Village in east London (closest tube is Old St fyi) and features (deep breath) Little Boots, Yasmin, DJ Kayper and DJ Nikki Beatnik. There will also be nail art courtesy of my favourite manicurists Wah Nails, as well as a pop up photo shoot, DJ battles, performance artists and a host of amazing live acts. Vice will be running competitions in the run up to this event so keep checking their site.
Just cos girls are running the show doesn't mean dude aren't allowed - so everyone should get themselves there...
