I just got back from seeing The Go-Gos on their Ladies Gone Wild tour with none other than one of my favorite Texas indie outfits, Girl In A Coma, named after a Smiths’ song and signed to Joan Jett’s Blackheart record label.
I was depressed to see a lazy crowd of Go-Go’s fans sitting in lawn chairs, sipping wine and looking as disinterested as grazing cows while GIAC played their energetic set of new songs and old favorites like “Static Mind.”
Their fourth CD, Exits & All The Rest is due out November 1st, the day before my birthday! And they are going to be touring awhile longer so go see them! Woooot.
