I don’t know how I missed this all-female band that mixed Zeppelin with Joplin with Bikini Kill energy before Bikini Kill was a thing. But I did.
And until my girlfriend’s buddy Kenny said, “wait, you seriously never heard of Birtha?! We have to go to YouTube, right now,” my life was incomplete.
Don’t feel bad (and if you already know, I tip my hat to you). The internet is amazing. Here’s Birtha performing “Too Much Woman For A Hen Pecked Man.” Live, but of course.
Goddamn. Rock on.
