The Alt Playlist of the Week celebrates the retro alternative bands with women who we think ROCK!

Happy International Women’s Day!

So many amazing women have changed the alternative music scene. Today, we are honoring a few retro alternative bands/artists that highlight women we admire! Below is a playlist of the songs DJ Mike dropped today so you can celebrate all the women in your life with some sweet tunes. Stay tuned for more women-centered playlists this month as we continue to celebrate women all over the world through music.

This post is dedicated to my mom, an awesome woman who LOVES the B-52s and taught me what good music is. Say thank you to a woman in your life today!
