After Lisa’s "Awesome Lady Drummer Roundup," there was so much positive feedback, enthusiasm, and an overwhelming amount of suggestions, it was undeniable that a second lady drummer roundup was called for.  As a drummer myself, I am honored to share with you the musician babes whom I worship and who inspire me. We present to you the following roundup of mainly current and underground bands in hopes of shedding a little bit of light on these kick-ass bands whose drummers happen to be female.

Slutever, "Smells Like Milk"

Chicks drinking whiskey, darts, and America. What more could one want?

Happy Birthday, "Girls FM"

Home girl lays down some of the best beats I’ve ever heard. Plus her sister happens to be tUnE-yArDs. Musical genes..?

Georgia Hubley has been schoolin’ the drums for decades now. A classic powerhouse lady drummer.
