In recent years, there has been a flood of museum exhibitions, gallery shows, book signings and academic lectures about the history of punk rock — and almost all of these well-intentioned, nostalgic retrospectives have been deadly dull and lack any hint of the passion and immediacy of the actual music. But tonight's event presented by the Women of Rock Oral History Project, a fundraiser for Tanya Pearson's ongoing series of interviews with female musicians for the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College, could be different. The panel discussion includes not only such punk legends as Alice Bag and Phranc but also overlooked local heroines such as Legal Weapon's fiery Kat Arthur and LoveyDove's Azalia Snail, as well as author-drummer Michelle Cruz Gonzales, riot-grrl icon Allison Wolfe (Bratmobile, Ex-Stains) and the rarely seen Julia Cafritz (Pussy Galore). Even better, there will be live music from Kristin Hersh, Legal Weapon, Phranc, Neon Music and Hole's Patty Schemel.
