2012 Tinderbox Festival
2012 Tinderbox Festival

The third annual Tinderbox Music Festival went down across three stages at Webster Hall this past Sunday (11/11). The festival aims to showcase "powerful, diverse, and innovative female artists and female-fronted bands" and this year's fest included Cocorosie, Jean Grae, Selebrities, Sirius Plan, Mal Blum (who plays Mercury Lounge on 12/11 with Zoe Boekbinder and tickets go on sale Monday [11/19] at noon), and more.

The festival doubles as a benefit show, and like in past years proceeds went to Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls Girls Write Now, and the Tinderbox Songwriting Workshop, but due to recent circumstances, this year they also donated part of the proceeds to New York Cares to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

Glamour Magazine talked to Sierra from Cocorosie right after the show:

Glamour: How do you feel right now after this amazing performance?

Sierra: I feel very lucky. I feel really blessed. The main thing we try to do is find our fear and run towards it. So lucky to have [Bianca] because there have been moments when I didn't have the courage to go through what I have, so I feel great. There are artists who have to do this, totally solo. I don't think I could do that, so working with fear is a big thing for me. For young artists and women, working with fear is probably what inspires us the most.

What, what was the question? Read the rest of the interview at Glamour (yes, Glamour).

Every time I think The Bowery Presents out-does themselves with some absurd booking, they always sink to a new low.
