A few weekends ago Menya and Hunter Valentine did a free (epic) show at NYU and from the stage, Kyomi advised the crowd to pick up a copy of Tom Tom Magazine, which was tabling at the event. Good advice.
Tom Tom Magazine is all about female drummers! So if you like drums, girls, or girls who drum, check it out. It’s gorgeously designed and full of thoughtful interviews with both big names and up-and-comers that you want to know about: Heather Hall and Janet Weiss, for example. Tom Tom also throws awesome parties in NYC, offers reviews of music, art, and fashion, and is super positive about the queer community.
Oh look, an awesome video of Kim Thompson with DJ Val-Inc at a Tom Tom Party:
