We love highlighting badass women in the entertainment industry. One of our favorites is Crowd Surf, they’re responsible for helping so many young artists break into the music industry. Crowd Surf was formed in 2007 by Cassie Petrey and Jade Driver and as the brains behind the operation, they’ve worked with the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Max & Harvey, and some of our favorites Why Don’t We and Jena Rose.

Who Run The World is London’s first promotions company exclusively showcasing women in music. They’re celebrating their second birthday on August 13th with a killer lineup featuring ARXX, Fightmilk, The Baby Seals, The Menstrual Cramps, and Suggested Friends. I talked to founder Beth White about the idea behind Who Run The World and why it’s necessary for women to support other women.

I talked to founder Kimi Recor about the birth of the project and where she sees it heading.

Now, here at The New Nine, we believe that everyone’s opinions on music are valid, but we especially like to stand up for young women because so few music publications do.

The weather didn’t look great for Grace Mitchell’s show. It had rained all morning but it had subsided for the moment. There was no one I was more excited to see on Sunday at Hangout Fest. “Now” is one of my favorite songs this year. The hard rock edge combined with 80s synths make it so instantly catchy.
