Wed 11.05.08 - In May, whilst in London, through a bunch of other friends, I met the fabulous WarriorGrrl (aka Laura Kidd) at the Food 2.0 NomNomNom contest. I was a judge and Laura was video-ing the event. We bonded within about 10 minutes due to similar hair color - birds of a colorful feather will flock together.
I did not learn that Laura was a bass player (for many bands, including Tricky) and a singer for the Young Punx collective until much later. But I love this video of Laura singing MASHitUP with the Young Punx crew, as it perfectly conveys her energy & creativity.
Laura is also very active in the web / Social Media Scene in London, like the Tuttle Club, on top of her music / creative career.
I would love to see creative, music, and other assorted LA art folk get more involved in and active in a social media and community sharing here in SoCal. I know we are out there, but it seems so MySpace based. Comment here and let us know if you are creating & sharing online in a non-MySpace environment!
Why? Because for the Barflies.net's 10th Anniversary we are going to do a series of Tuttle Club like events to get musicians, artists, and other web/creative folk together and have a good meetup!
