“Vivian Girls’ Cassie Ramone goes somber with “I Don’t Really Wanna Go.” The track comes from a split 7″ with Hunx and the proceeds for digital sale of the song go to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund, a charity that celebrates the life of the passed Tough Knuckles guitarist. Check out the track below.”

(…) Playing its first gig ever, Ali Koehler’s new endeavor, Upset, took The Echo stage early. Who is Ali Koehler, you ask? Only the former drummer for Vivian Girls and Best Coast, who is now front and center singing and playing guitar. And she’s not alone up there. Hole’s former drummer Patty Schemel (not too shabby, eh?), lead guitarist Jennifer Prince and bassist Chris Juarez are in cohorts with Koehler. Upset is so new, there are no recordings and was only able to play a short set. But enough time to get a taste of some punky pop goodness. “I hope when you grow up, you’re not like me.” (…) Photos and words by Debi Del Grande

“Ali Koehler has previously served time behind the kit in both Vivian Girls and Best Coast, and she has also shared a few solo tracks. Now, the drummer-turned-singer is fronting her own band, and she has some high-profile players backing her up.

Koehler will be singing and playing guitar in a four-piece called Upset. In a tweet, Koehler revealed that the band also features former Hole drummer Patty Schemel, who was the subject of the recent rock doc Hit So Hard. The lineup is rounded out by lead guitarist Jennifer Prince and bassist Chris Roberts.”

La Sera :: Army Of One | Aritzia


(c) Lauren Ward

“Part tattooed tomboy, part pre-Raphaelite post-punk maiden, Katy Goodman—the auburn-haired beauty behind the luscious, jagged dream pop of La Sera—greets me in a gorgeous hidden cabin up in the hills of Los Angeles’ historic Angelino Heights neighbourhood. The location—the backyard of the photographer shooting her for Aritzia—is suitably picturesque for the nymph-like beauty, who also plays in Brooklyn band Vivian Girls. …”
