Fanny: The Right to Rock
August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$11 – $16
In the 1960s, in sunny Sacramento, two Filipina-American sisters got together with other teenage girls to play music. Little did they know their garage band would evolve into the legendary rock group Fanny, the first all-women band to issue an LP with a major record label. Despite releasing five critically-acclaimed albums over five years, touring with famed bands from Slade to Chicago, and amassing a dedicated fan base of music legends including David Bowie, Fanny’s groundbreaking impact in music was written out of history…until bandmates reunited 50 years later with a new rock record deal. Fighting early barriers of racism, sexism, and homophobia in the music industry – and now confronting ageism – the incredible women of Fanny are ready to claim their hallowed place in the halls of rock ‘n’ roll fame. Fanny: The Right to Rock is a rousing retelling of a vital piece of music history, with exhilarating archival footage of the band’s rocking past intercut with its next chapter releasing a new LP today and interviews featuring a large cadre of music icons.
