Jessica Posner, a Syracuse University professor and "riot-grrl" singer, hosts a feminist rock showcase to counteract a local music scene dominated by men.

Indie music, cheap beers and interesting conversation makes for a usual Friday night at Spark Contemporary Art Space. This past Oct. 2, feminist punks clad in floral prints, combat boots and bandanas screamed, crooned, strummed and shredded raw emotion, angst and revolution in front of a rowdy crowd nodding and moshing along.
