We know, we know, we say it every month, but July's meet-up was SO GOOD! Maybe it was because we were riding the wave of a successful inaugural Lady Brain Fest. Maybe it was the full house, the artsy space, or the nachos. It was definitely the inspiring and collaborative presentations from our host Astra Kelly, Carissa Schroeder, and Sandi King - all Lady Brain members, talented creatives, and compassionate entrepreneurs.
Carissa kicked things off with a chill mindful vocal meditation/warm up. It was exactly what we needed on a Monday night to center and connect with ourselves and each other.
Next, Sandi talked about her new venture, Backseat Booking. No matter the tour route or style of music, Sandi is a wealth of information when it comes to touring. She can help indie artists book entire tours, or give them the tools they need to successfully plan their own routes.
Astra of soulsong.life rounded out the evening with a songwriting workshop demo that resulted in some pretty special goosebump moments - once we found the right melody (thanks, Jessica Lerner) and hook, magic energy was swirling all around the room. Looking forward to next month's meetup!
Shout out to Heather Marie for hosting the March meet-up in her lovely home! This month, we talked about working with audio techs to capture the best sound at live events. (Thanks to John Mcconnell for taking our questions and to Heather for presenting his answers to the group.) We also received a stellar presentation from Lady Brain member Sharisse Coulter. We learned so much! It's so wonderful to see this group growing. Thanks to all who attended!
Special thanks to Corina Rose for hosting this month's member meet-up. We did some great networking and got the ball rolling on planning some awesome showcases in the coming months, including the first annual Lady Brain Fest, which will feature a 100% womxn-fronted lineup! Most importantly, we learned a lot about what kinds of resources and support members are looking for. Thanks to all attended - we can't wait to grow with you!
Welcome friends, to the first entry of the Lady Brain Blog. What started as a casual meet-up last month is now on its way toward becoming a fully operational collective of empowered womxn creatives. Please check back regularly for interviews, updates, and features on our members and their work. If you live in San Diego and are looking to add a bit more art, culture, and connection to your life, we encourage you to get to know and support our members by engaging with them on social media, attending their live events, purchasing their work, and inviting your network of friends to join the fun.
