Tune Into Triple J Tonight To Hear High Tension’s Karina Utomo Host The Racket

karina utomo

Karina Utomo from Melbourne legends High Tension is hosting triple j program The Racket tonight, so if you didn’t know what you were doing before, you sure as hell do now. The program is basically three hours of heavy from 10pm, and Utomo will be hosting in commemoration of International Women’s Day, with The Racket’s Facebook page commenting that it’s “important to present different perspectives within heavy music”.

Not only will the badarse frontwoman be taking the wheel and spinning some tunes, she’ll be joined by the awesome Jelena Goluza from fellow Melbourne act Outright.

In addition to these amazing ladies taking over The Racket, a host of other female presenters have been making themselves heard on the triple j airwaves all day long. Check out the full roster below to see what else in store for this evening’s programming. You can also check out some startling stats about the under-representation of women in different industry areas.

Girl power has been sourced by the station from artists such as Halsey and Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry, who shouted out Paramore’s Hayley Williams (AKA our pop-punk queen): “She’s such an energetic live performer… I really love that whenever you see them live, she’s just such a kick-arse band frontperson. Regardless of the fact that she’s female, she’s so powerful.”

Damn right. Here’s to equality regardless of gender worldwide.
