Indie103.1 started doing this free summer concert series back in 2006. I remember going twice. The first one was to see RunRunRun and Silversun Pickups. The second time was for People in Planes and Shiny Toy Guns. I didn't get to go at all last year because I was going through some "hard times". I was so excited to see how many female-fronted bands were in the lineup this year. They had NicoVega, IO Echo, The Duke Spirit, and Miss Derringer! The concerts are held at the Hammer Museum in Westwood by UCLA. So you know I just HAD to go when Miss Derringer and The Deadly Syndrome played on July 10, 2008. Miss Derringer is fronted by the amazingly talented artist Liz McGrath. (Remember my post about her art show?) And I can't get enough of the Deadly Syndrome! When you see them, you feel what they feel. The emotions are there. The heart, the fire, the passion for music is pure and you can see it and feel it. That's not so common nowadays when there are just so many bands out there. Not to mention, they're awesome technically as well. These guys are the real deal. So refreshing.

Miss Derringer - I love their costumes and her rockabilly, western, goth, punk style.
The Deadly Syndrome...... *sigh*
