The great thing about women playing music is that if someone is amazed that women are playing music, you know that person is holding all of us back in the collective unconscious. On Friday, Jan. 16, the second annual Bad Girl Revue takes place, featuring the punk ’n’ roll sounds of local bands with female members: Hot Dolphin, Bitchmouth, Asylum and Kommunion. Also on the bill is Dorthia Cottrell of local doom metalists Windhand, playing a solo show of meditative acoustic offerings rooted in late-’60s psych folk. Cottrell’s melodies aren’t as propulsive as her co-patriots, but her haunting, Nico-esque style on her soon-to-be released self-titled solo album from Forcefield Records showcases that, just like men, women are capable of making a variety of melodious sounds. For the most part, this benefit for Girls Rock RVA, the local, nonprofit music camp for girls ages 8-14, will be a hyper-charged affair of rock rudiments. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $5. strangematterrva.com.
