If you’re like me and get excited every time you find a new lady fronted pop-punk band, I hope you’ll like us on facebook and show us some support!
Here’s the first song off my band’s new demo.
This feature wouldn’t be complete without Kara Passey - although she technically grew up just east of Transcona. A multimedia artist, she works with large-scale oil painting as well as installation and sculpture.
Working mostly with self-portraiture, she investigates her body and how obesity plays into her identity. You can discover her work at http://karapassey.tumblr.com.
If that wasn’t enough, when she’s not painting she fronts the Lemuria-inspired pop-punk band Fists In! Poppy power chords and catchy drumbeats are partnered with songs focused on feeling crappy about life and the world around you. The on-and-off four-piece released an album last summer that is available for free download athttp://www.mediafire.com/?whetqkndnuk4q.
- Adam Petrash
Fists In!! live at the Lo Pub, opening for Lemuria in December 2011.
(This is me in all my punk, fat, glory).
Me and Sheena from Lemuria!
