Anything Boys Can Do… Ethan Minsker 1996 Music Documentary 71 min The underground music world has been characteristically male dominated, both the bands and the audiences. With the upsurge of women involvement in the scene, female bands and musicians are all too often regarded as novelty acts, regularly shrugged off as militant feminist or cutely entertaining. Overwhelmed by the numbers of male bands, female bands of the scene are lumped together in one category, “girl group”, regardless of style, talent or musical content. Anything Boys Can Do… investigates and reveals the issues affecting women in general and as individual performers.
Featuring: Tribe 8 Sexpod Thrust The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black Vitapup The Wives Maul Girls and many more
