Local Music Week: The Girls!
My introduction to The Girls! occurred on a drunken night at Skully’s as they were one of Alive’s Bands to Watch earlier this year. All hopped up on wine, I was drawn into what The Girls! were about with this video. Their talent further absorbed into my brain after hearing one song; this song stuck in my head like gum, ya’ll. Using the latest technology AKA Facebook Messenger, Jessica Wabbit gave me some insight into her band. Also pay attention to a quotation from Miss Wabbit, as it is related to an answer Lydia Loveless, her sister, provided.
Briana Henry: You all seem to be a diverse group of people, where did you meet and how did your band form?
Jessica Wabbit: I don’t remember how we formed. I just effin’ love these guys.
BH: There’s a song (forgive me if incorrect) with the lyrics, “I wish I didn’t have girl parts, I wish you didn’t have boy parts…”, what is the story behind that?
JW: I was friends with a boy. We ended up having sex. Song.
BH: Any future shows? Are you playing any outside of Columbus?
JW: We play almost every weekend. We’ll be on tour in September.
BH: Are there any releases we can look forward to?
JW: We’re on finishing touches on our LP. Keep an eye out for it in the late summer.
BH: What is your favorite thing about Comfest?
JW: Running into my ex-boyfriends.
The Girls! perform on the Offramp stage on Saturday at 5:30PM.
