Just caught an earlier flight to Austin and plan on popping over to the She Shreds party featuring a number of female related artists. One that I’m really psyched to to see is Diet Cig, a band renowned for their live set. Diet Cig is Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums). The duo have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman’s other band for a lighter. They have an infectious energy that even translates to their interviews, as evident by this one with some kids.
The album will be out on 4/17 via the fine folks at French Kiss Records. Diet Cig explained the video and their commitment to Girl’s Rock Camps: The video stars members of Willie Mae Rock Camp in NYC and Girls Rock Philly, and follows a day-in-the-life of them as touring musicians. The video also subverts the classic idea of a girly sleepover, and turns it into a zine making, patriarchy smashing craft fest. We wanted to show the power in friendship and that while it may be hard to be a punk while wearing a skirt, we are loud, we are powerful and we’re always ready to show up.
