Sister Ex, Mimi Loco and Grandma's Mini in DC -- AWESOME!

Grandma's Mini -- my first band with my BFF Ann Brandstadter of Project Applesauce (now Mimi Loco) -- reunited this weekend with a show at the Laughing Lizard Lounge in Alexandria, Va., that included "Learn to Love Your Shit Job," "Laid Off" and other songs targeting economically challenged peeps. Of course, playing a smoky bar (yes, in Virginia, they still smoke cigarettes in bars!) triggered some nice memories. And I loved jumping up and down for classic songs like "Hypo" (about being a hypochondriac"), "Protected Sex" and "Roger is the Wicked Witch of the West." What made this experience even better? Playing with the awesome local D.C.-area band Sister Ex, a total '90s-style Siouxie-like alt-rock outfit led by the sweet yogi Claudia. Check them out if you get the chance!
