For the past year, Minora Majora Presents has held a monthly showcase of female musicians. The event culminates in an anniversary party at The Starry Plough (3101 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley), which features a lineup of mostly-local, stripped-down, estrogen-fueled talent, including New York City-based folk-pop duo Christy and Emily, who blend indie-rock guitar swells with classical piano; Band Practice, a local funk meets rock ‘n’ roll outfit; I Scream You Scream, the acoustic solo project of Oakland musician Alanna Paoli, whose powerful voice is raw and indignant; and another local songstress, Thunder Thighs, a violinist whose delicate, feather-light vocals are accompanied by powerful strumming. Whether or not you possess a minora majora, the evening promises to be a celebration of women who rock.
