Tumblr of the Week: Awesome Girls in Bands


But I still think it's important to recognize some truly great famous female performers out there.

Luckily there's a Tumblr devoted to exactly that! Awesome Girls in Bands sheds a little light on cool chicks in bands and fantastic female solo artists as well.

More on what's awesome about this week's Tumblr of the Week after the jump...

Awesome Girls in Bands highlights exactly what its title describes. Featured rocker chicks include Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast, PJ Harvey, Florence Welch, Debbie Harry, Gwen Stefani, Bjork, Meg White, and more.


Plus the author of this blog particularly has an affinity for Alice Glass of Canadian electronic band Crystal Castles.

Perhaps blogs that pay tribute to fabulous females in music are like a new, much cooler Lilith Fair.
