Writers and Rockers Celebrate Riot Grrrl Revolution

Earlier this week, former GalleyCat editor Emily Gould read alongside the young girl band Supercute! at the 92YTribeca in Manhattan–see all the pictures here.

Along with Sean Fennessey and Elizabeth Spiridakis, Gould helped support Marisa Meltzer‘s new book, Girl Power: The Nineties Revolution in Music. The book studies “the role of women in rock since the riot grrrl revolution.”

GalleyCat missed the event, but TimeOutNY had a great write up of the rock & roll party: “[Supercute!] performed songs in between sets, including a cover of Britney Spears‘s ‘Oops!…I Did It Again.’ They also pitched in during blogger Emily Gould‘s presentation, which began with a performance of one of the dirtiest songs ever recorded, Liz Phair‘s ‘Flower.’ While Gould read a cleaned-up version of the lyrics (‘Blow Pop queen’ subbed in for one of the song’s more memorable lines), the girls of Supercute! sang a G-rated version of the song’s backing vocals.”
