On Friday 6th April, Darlington Film Club and Noisy Daughters (brought to you by Tracks) team up to bring you an exclusive North-East Screening of the Stephanie Clattenburg’s award-winning documentary-film, ‘Play Your Gender‘.
Juno Award-winning musician Kinnie Starr is on a quest to find out why only 5% of music producers are women, even though many of the most bankable pop stars are female. What does it take for a woman to make it in music?
The documentary features insightful chats with Sara Quinn of Tegan & Sara, Melissa Auf der Maur of The Smashing Pumpkins and Hole, Patty Schemel of Hole, Chantal Kreviazuk, and many more of the music industry’s most talented women.
To make the night even more special there will be a couple of live performances from two of the regions finest female artists including Heather Story – a Teesside singer-songwriter with gritty lyrics and catchy melodies reflecting growing up in a North East town, and Girl From Winter Jargon – Nuance rich vocals combine with stand-alone electric guitar, live looping layers and strange, spooky noises.
Doors 7.30pm. Tickets are £4.00 in advance and are available from The Forum Music Centre. To book call 01325 363135.
