Girls Run This Sh!t at WildCat Lounge

Wildcat Lounge CDO Tequila
Voted Santa Barbara’s Best Place to Dance.

“Shennie Smith presents Girls Run This Sh!t, the first in a budding concert series that features female artists and female coordinators.The event takes place at the Wildcat Lounge,
which also happens to be Smith’s place of employment, and includes performances from singer/songwriters Tara Horton and Johanna Rompf, soul act La Radia, rockers Pretty Awesome, and S.B.’s reigning queens of folk fusion, Rainbow Girls. In addition, Smith has teamed up with Wildcat co-owner Dawn Stout to gather Santa Barbara-based visual artists to contribute work to the event, including Lindsay Mickelson, who will be doing screen printing throughout the night.” ~ The Santa Barbara Independent

La Radia – Like A Star & Your Song
Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I’ll never be the same

Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands
Oh, I do love you…

“While Smith admits that the idea for the concert came from feeling like an outsider amid the Santa Barbara music scene, she insists that her vision is very much about a united front. While women will run the show on Tuesday, the lineup is totally male-friendly. (Smith’s own band, Pretty Awesome, boasts guys on drums, guitar, and bass.) Most importantly, Smith explained, the show is about bringing people together. “I wanted to do this simply because I believe that women rock,” she said. “We’re strong and we’re beautiful and we have each other’s back. And when we get together, we can do amazing things.”

Take, for example, Tuesday’s lineup, which finds two of Smith’s friends — Horton and Rompf — graduating from karaoke cameos to performing their own tunes. Taking a cue from her experiences putting a band together, Smith encouraged the women to try their hand at performing sans backing track and was so impressed she added both to the bill. “Getting onstage with a band and playing has been the greatest thing,” Smith said of her experience forming Pretty Awesome. “I’d been going through some tough things in my life, and it really has helped me realize what I want to be doing. It’s like nothing else. … With the openers, both girls work with me at Wildcat, and they both have these amazing voices. They’ll go to karaoke, and they like to sing, but they don’t have people to play with. I’ve been telling them they need to get out there and start playing shows, so on Tuesday they’ll have a guitarist with them and be playing their songs. It’s going to be great.”

The night also brings a headlining set from Rainbow Girls, a young act that’s fast becoming a regular presence on the Santa Barbara club calendar. Formed as a side project of the now defunct Isla Vista act Sprout, Rainbow Girls cut their teeth by way of weekly busking gigs at the Santa Barbara Farmers Market. Performing a collection of originals and covers, the quintet quickly started to draw crowds among the veggie-loving masses, thanks to a jangly and harmony-filled mix of acoustic percussion, old-timey instrumentation, and some seriously strong vocal chops. Needless to say, it wasn’t long before the Girls were making the move over to bigger stages in and out of town. Next week they’ll open up for California Honeydrops at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club. Like Smith, the band agrees that a show like Girls Run this Sh!t is a welcome addition to the scene and a step in helping level the playing field.” ~ The Santa Barbara Independent
