Bangles, Caillat at She Rocks Awards

I’m sorry to admit that I’ve become somewhat used to going to women in music networking events that are anemically attended, retro in stance, and generally pathetic. So I was astonished to walk into the Pacific Ballroom at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel Friday night and find the cavernous space filled for the She Rocks Awards. Then again, the whole Disney area was crawling with aging rockers in hairpieces and bemused tourists as the NAMM Show shrugged off measles fears for some serious deal and hangover making. I wrote about She Rocks for the Los Angeles Times; I’m very proud to have gotten the phrase “hairy-knuckled sausage making” in there.
