Hey guys,
Just wanted to give you a heads up on a Los Angeles area band that will be touring Europe next month. Called Texas Terri, she is pretty much an icon here in the smaller clubs in & around Los Angeles, Hollywood, Silverlake - that whole L.A. basin region. Probably originally from Texas her bands (Texas Terri & the Stiff Ones, Texas Terri Bomb, etc) have been tearing up the clubs here for the last 15 years or so. Usually she hooks up with very good musicians in the area, gets a band going that last for a couple of years then it implodes. Then she just does it all again. Last time I saw her most recent band (back in March) she had a fantastic young guitar player in the band, Kevin Preston. Not sure if he is in the latest incarnation or not but if so they are a must see IMHO.

Pretty much they do a heavier alternative rock thing in a similar vain to an Iggy Pop or Stooges thing but in a little raunchier, female fronted manner. I have seen literally thousands of bands in my life (what else do you do in this city?) & Texas Terri is one of the best "front lady" I have seen live. She would probably kill herself on stage if the crowd requested it hard enough! Basically pours her soul out on stage & takes no prisoners & it doesn't really look like an act at all. Hence the theory of mine about the death bit!

I have no ties to this band what-so-ever. Thought I would just mention it just in case some of you may be into this type of stuff. Went to her website to see when she is playing in town again as it has been a while. Saw that she was touring in Europe again so I thought I'd warn you! After her show in Anaheim in March I talked to her for a few minutes. She said she loved the audiences in Europe & was thinking of moving to Great Britain. You are forewarned!

Her website is http://www.texasterri.com/ & the Euro tour dates are here

Yeah, I know, time for me to crawl back into my L.A. suburban hole...
