I wash with your soap

It was April 1, 2006 at the El Rey. They were the opening for the We Are Scientists show. That is when I first heard of, first saw, first fell in love with a band called The Grates. Their songs, her energy, so fun, so rock and roll, but also had a stinging bittersweetness. She was jumping around in a yellow floral shift dress, pink fishnets, and wellies on. I fell in love with a song called "Lies Are Much More Fun". (Perhaps because it's as bipolar as I am.) Several months later, they played at the opening of Club NME Los Angeles at Spaceland. I took the pictures there. I love all tracks from their album Gravity Won't Get You High.

"Look at all the pretty girls
see her yeah she smiles for you
Look behind the pretty girls
see me here I'm smiling too"
