Girl In a Coma Coming To The D

One of San Antonio's finest all-girl bands, er, maybe the only all-girl band--Girl in a Coma are coming to Dallas.  I've been waiting for this one!  One of the best things about writing about music is I get to listen to new bands and I wrote about these girls a while back--they are amazing!  

In the spirit of their label head, Joan Jett, these three ladies turn out ballsy punky rock.  If you're my brother, you wouldn't check them out because they're chicks.  That would be a dumb move, my friends.  Being a gifted musician shouldn't be defined by your gender.  I figure if they are good enough to get a personal invite from Morrissey to be his opening act then that's good enough for me.  But, throw in the fact that their songs are bad ass and Nina Diaz is an amazing vocalist, then I'm in bitches!

However, odd venue choice--Sue Ellen's?  Um, didn't know they put on shows there...but, cool?  It should definitely make for an interesting evening.
