But I think that it’s a really excellent time to be a woman in music. A lot of the past was women fighting to be where we are now. Every once in a while I’ll get the, “Oh, you’re a pretty good guitar player for a girl,” bullshit like that. But that’s all changing. Certain outfits and avenues of standard rock music have been exhausted, so there’s a definite new life for that. And one way of doing that is women playing together. It has a totally different feel than men playing together. If people like you, it’s a way to put yourself out there because you’re not just a four-dude rock band. [laughs] All the bands that are getting attention, like Haim and Savages, are all performing different styles of music but are filling that same gap.
