On the fourth day of Gheorghe-mas, Big Gheorghe gave to me...
Four Smokin' Rock Chicks
Three Blogging Concepts (Sports, Drinking, Elitism)
Two Footie Stories
And a Doofus on a Pony
Our love of rock babes is reasonably well documented. From Neko to Jenny Lewis to Feist, Zooey Deschanel, and Avril Lavigne, we're suckers for a pretty girl with a little bit of attitude and a microphone. For Gheorge-mas this year, we give you a quartet of ladies (a sextet, if you count each of Pistol Annies - heh heh, he said 'sextet') who brought it in 2011.
We first heard of Dum Dum Girls when they covered The Smiths' There is a Light That Never Goes Out. The pleasure and privilege was ours when we heard more of their stuff. Here's 'Bedroom Eyes', a whole different perspective of life on the road.
The Givers play unapologetic bubblegum pop music, and Tiffany Lamson makes me feel kinda funny, like when I'm climbing the rope in gym class.
St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, has the kind of voice that makes a strong man stop in his tracks. Or so I assume. It makes a lesser man like me sit down and take a deep breath.
Finally, the Pistol Annies are a trio of lady badasses, including Miranda Lambert of Gunpowder and Lead fame. Please, Annie, don't hurt 'em.
