With a new issue, “Fake,” set to hit newsstands, Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture will be hosting a night of local, feminist-friendly talent on Saturday, October 16th. The Fake party will benefit the independent, nonprofit publication.
“This party works in the same way as our magazine: it’s important for our ideas to be out there, to interact with our readers, and to honor artists who represent what we find exciting and interesting about current culture,” said Publisher Lisa Jervis.
Named 2004’s Best Girl Band by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Lipstick Conspiracy are plotting to persuade the world to look beyond gender, via sassy power-pop and a glamour-laden show. The inspired rock of the Cold War proclaims that revolution isn't quiet. These two groups will be joined by three Mills music students, Lizzy and the Redbirds, performing 60s girl group songs, with an intimate and original approach.
The Fake party will be held at the hip and historical Mile High Club, a perfect fit for one of Oakland’s long-running, independent publishing luminaries.
Since 1996, Bitch has been a witty, vital voice in feminist and pop-culture criticism, looking at everything from books to billboards to bra ads through an analytical-yet-fun, sharp-yet-sympathetic lens and celebrating the feminist culture-makers who are transforming the media with their unique contributions.
Further explaining Bitch’s place in our media-driven world, Editorial/Creative Director Andi Zeisler remarked: “Bitch puts a lucid, balanced face on feminism for devoted social-justice crusaders, TV-obsessed couch potatoes, and everyone in between.”
The spanking-new Fake issue (Fall 2004) is a characteristically chock-full 96 pages of interviews, essays, and opinions. We chat with crusading comedian Janeane Garofalo of Air America; Jennifer Abbott, co-director of award-winning documentary The Corporation; and local gangsta-rap upstart JenRO. Elsewhere, senior editor Rachel Fudge examines the marketing of ironic hipster-racism by Urban Outfitters and Abercrombie & Fitch, and contributor Shauna Swartz delves uneasily into the world of online porn "humilitainment." Oh, and we all celebrate the joy of faux-from hair extensions to Space Food Sticks-in The Fake List.
