Kissing Girls, The Choke + Desiree Bassett


The latest PR shout outs…

Kissing Girls – Seattle alt-pop. See them Dec. 18 at Club Motor 8pm!

The Choke – NYC Garage punks. With sick flair. Reminds me of Blondie.

Desiree Bassett – Ashford, CT Rock & Blues artist. At 18, she is conquering the world one guitar solo at a time. Reminds me of Bonnie Raitt with a little Lita Ford.

Stephanie Rocks out with Green Day!


I found this and just had to share.

I don’t know if Green Day does this at all of their shows, but they pick someone from the audience to come up and play a song with them. This girl Stephanie does one rocking job with “Jesus of Suburbia!” Green Day knows it….Girls Rock!!! Go girl go!

What ticks me off though is the comments posted under the video. Things like “Whos the random fat chick” and “super fat but awsom!!!!!” WTF? Her body has  nothing to do with it!!!! She blows the crowd away. How many of you, just randomly pulled on stage could pull that off and not break down or freak out? To all the haters, F-U.
