A while back, we asked Alex Flanders, host of "GIRLS!" on KABF-FM 88.3 and entrepreneur behind Crying Weasel Vintage, to put together a playlist for us, showcasing some favorite rockers from her Thursday night radio show. What we got was a 27-track certified tutorial in rock, pop and punk made by women, not to mention further proof that women are behind some of the most inventive rock and roll being made today.

Tonight, GIRLS! hosts a benefit for the community radio station at the White Water Tavern, 9 p.m., featuring sets from DOT, Squelch, and Junkbomb, as well as comedy sets from Brittany Birrer and Cortney Warner and a costume contest celebrating historic iconic women, "musicians, scientists, artists, activists, authors," or others.

We thought we'd share some crucial tracks from the GIRLS! archives ahead of the show. If you like what you hear, listen in on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. 8:30 p.m, and join the host, et al. tonight and dress up as your favorite historic woman.

  • Review and slideshow: Chris Stapleton and Marty Stuart at Verizon Arena

    Don't get me wrong: Chris Stapleton is wildly accomplished and in complete command of his voice. He’s probably the closest thing, vocally, that we have to Chris Cornell on this earth, but somewhere there must be an unwritten rule that the headliner is to be afforded the luxury of a superboosted presence; something that lets the audience know, as I knew when my entire body began to rumble seismically upon his grand entrance, that things were cranking up to eleven, that we were “really gonna party now.”
