Fanny: The Right to Rock (Closing Night)
Post-screening rock concert by Jag
Sometime in the 1960s, in sunny Sacramento, two Filipina-American sisters got together to play music. Little did they know their garage rock band would evolve into the legendary Fanny, the first all-woman band to release an LP with a major record label. Despite recording a handful of albums and amassing a dedicated fan base that included music legend David Bowie, the band all but disappeared from the records of music history. This documentary not only tells the story of the band's rocking past, but also documents its next chapter: now in their 60s, the bandmates are recording a new album. Fighting early barriers of race, gender and sexuality in the music industry, the women of Fanny are ready to take their place in the halls of rock 'n' roll fame.
Revivify Fanny. And my work is done.

Closing Night Rock Concert by Jag
We’re excited to present an explosive set by local musician JAG and her band. A wailing rocker in the ilk of Howlin’ Wolf, her guttural renditions transcend by sheer viscerality.
Howlin’ the blues with a rock n roll attitude, Jag is a raw musician from Melbourne. She fearlessly engages with audiences, putting on performances of pure emotion. Writing songs of freedom, growth, and individuality, Jag shows that she’s more than just a performer. Jag is a Rock n’ Soul, Hard Blues Funk artist. Her raspy style is influenced by the likes of Tina Turner, Hendrix, and shock-rock legend Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. She released her debut track 'Satisfied' in December 2021.
