Of the RETROSPEKT series, founder Lauren Kashuk says, “The tables will never turn, and women will never be able to have the decision-making at major music companies and influence culture if they don’t come together and start to throw shows their own way. It’s different from any other event because I’ve yet to see an event like this. So it’s created for my community, by my community. To me, the series represents hope.”
