Have you watched VinylFlight of the ConcordsThe Get DownRoadiesor The Might Boosh?  Notice anything missing in these shows? Why are the women always groupies, roadies, singing girl-group femmes or facilitators for the guys? Enter Venus Flytrap – new musical comedy web-series following a band of young women intent on grabbing rock and roll by the balls in the land of Trumpistan. Together, it’s something WE can do to fight the powers that be, and laugh our asses off while we squeeze! Follow along as the punk feminist band Venus Flytrap (VFT) and their various cohorts disrupt the entertainment status quo with their own unique brand of comedy, anarchy, music and irreverence.

Venus Flytrap are inspired by the women artists of the late 1970s and 1980s – an international cadre of suffragettes that flocked to NYC and kicked up a fury of delicious noise and artistic mayhem. We’ll watch VFT resurrect the spirit of protest in music while navigating a world of dysfunctional families, sexualities, rival bands, managers and lovers who are all trying to push them into absurd concepts and styles in an attempt to snag the tarnished golden ring of rock glory. Female icons like Margaret Cho, Lydia Lunch and Asia Argento will play characters that aid and abet their crimes against sexist culture. Legendary band-breaker Nic Harcourt rounds out the cast, saying, "I seeVFT as a show that gives a voyeur's look at the biz from a female point of view. Now is clearly the moment as well, as we see women and artists under attack by the Trump administration. I've joined the resistance. Plus Gil Brundy is the ant-Nic Harcourt... I'm looking forward to taking the piss out of myself."

Created by Adele Bertei, VFT will show the world how women have always held a crucial space within rock’s freedom cry and still do today, with a ball-breaking rebel wail. These women are not new to breaking boundaries in male-dominated worlds. Writer/Director Bertei is known for writing, touring, singing and performing on hit songs with artists likeThomas Dolby, Tears for Fears, Whitney Houston, Sheena Easton, Sparks, andCulture Club, to name a few.

Bertei states, I created Venus Flytrap as a feminist roar against male-dominated rock series, and I'm thrilled that it has now attracted such an amazing cast. Every person is perfect for their prospective role, and I know all will elevate the comedy, defiance and music of this series to its ultimate expression. It's also a fantastic opportunity to have younger musicians meet their idols; the women from the 70s 80s and 90s who truly broke new ground in music and art internationally.”
