Tom Tom Magazine Release: Sad Horse, Hungry Ghost, Reynosa 

When: Sun., Oct. 16, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5-10
Guess how many female drummers have appeared on the cover of Modern Drummer? One. (And it wasn't Sheila E.—it was jazz drummer Terri Lyne Carrington.) Thank heaven, then, for Tom Tom magazine, a national publication that's entirely devoted to women percussionists. Tonight is the local celebration for the release of their seventh issue, and appropriately there's a batch of local bands with ladies on the skins, including Sad Horse (with Elizabeth Venable) and Hungry Ghost (with Sara Lund). Only a complete chauvinist or an absolute moron could pretend that a woman on the drum throne is a novelty at this point in time—I'd reckon that there are just as many females drumming in Portland as there are males, if not more, although this is purely unscientific guesswork. Still, here's a chance to celebrate all the incredible women drummers we have in this town. NED LANNAMANN
