Sex and the Single Show Girl

Lately I’ve been running into lots of examples in movies, stories, and books of sexual harrassment of women in show business.  It’s just rampant.  Of course, my media sources aren’t from the present day — the present day is too depressing. I’ve set the dial back to about the turn of the century through the 1930s.  Now that I think of it, these too were depressing times.  But depressing times call for entertainment—so bring on the show girls!

Antje Duvekot and Beaucoup Blue at Next Stage on Saturday, February 3

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present award-winning contemporary folk singer/songwriter Antje Duvekot and Philadelphia-based, Americana and acoustic blues duo Beaucoup Blue at Next Stage on Saturday, February 3 at 7:30 pm.

Antje Duvekot is a German-born, American-raised singer/songwriter whose songs have been critically praised for their hard-won wisdom, dark-eyed realism and street-smart romanticism. Her bicultural upbringing and relative newness to English have helped shape her unique way with a song, giving her a startlingly original poetic palette. They are the keys to the powerful, even revolutionary, empathy that informs everything she writes. She has won some of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the Kerrville Folk Festival Best New Folk Award and the Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act.
