I'm the Queen of Rock & Roll (a chronology of riot grrrl mix)

I've finally gotten around to uploading the custom-commissioned mixes I made in exchange for some generous donations during my show for WMUA's annual fund drive back in November. All-around swell dude Dave Murray requested a mix detailing the evolution of riot grrrl & I was more than happy to oblige. This goes in roughly chronological order, starting with the foremothers of riot grrrl & ending with some contemporary bands carrying the riot grrrl torch. Consider this my Valentine's Day gift to y'all! Download link below the tracklisting.
