Housewives Aren’t Desperate When They Rock Out

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Women who want to avoid becoming real-life Desperate Housewives would be better off picking up a guitar than the gardener.

That’s the word from Joy Rose, one of the organizers of “Mamapalooza,” a music festival that starts tonight (May 19) in New York and features more than 200 motherly musicians.

Rose – who plays guitar in a mom-oriented rock group called Housewives On Prozac – says being a rock musician is a great way for moms to reinvent themselves and be passionate about something besides getting the kids to soccer games.

Even better: Rose says Mom Rock allows moms to turn real-life events with their kids into songs, like her own composition, “Eat Your Damn Spaghetti.”

Rose feels the Mom Rock movement has the potential to be as culturally significant as punk and predicts that record stores will devote a whole section to the genre within four years.
