During this episode of Live Fix Radio, we explore how the female brain, body and emotions are impacted by the live music experience. We also spoke with Egyptian hardcore band Massive Scar Era. And after seeing the female-fronted quartet perform live at Obbityfest 2011, Sherine (vocals/guitar) and Nancy (violin) told us about how the revolution in Cairo impacts their music and live show, what lead them to start the band in spite of cultural adversity, and what family struggles they had to overcome to play live and tour.
