the snarling urgency of post-punk with the sensuality of bossa-nova, they’ve
come upon something very different and exciting to listen to” (M. Cotto, KCRW).

Angeles area in several community/cultural festivals, farmers markets, gallery
openings, weddings and birthdays. They have performed at First Fridays
