Headliner: Bitch Jenny Owen Youngs and Shilpa Ray and her Happy Hookers among 15+ performers to be announced; Proceeds to Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls & Girls Write Now Tinderbox Music Festival, which will be held on September 26, 2010, at Southpaw in Brooklyn, NY, aims to promote and coalesce the music of an eclectic group of approximately 20 female artists who span across the entire musical spectrum. Artists include Bitch, Jenny Owen Youngs, and Shilpa Ray and her Happy Hookers, all of whom have already confirmed their performances at the festival. Tinderbox fosters community by providing opportunities to perform, collaborate, and connect within the vibrant NYC music scene. By donating 100 % of net proceeds to organizations involved in helping the next generation of women musicians, Tinderbox strives to ensure that the fire it ignites will long outlive and outgrow the festival itself. Due to the positive feedback that Tinderbox has already accumulated, along with sponsorships from companies such as Venus Zine, BUST Magazine, and ASCAP, the festival is looking to take a showcase to the annual SXSW festival in Texas next March in hopes of garnering enough attention to create a buzz about the second Tinderbox Festival that will be held in 2011.
