Bay Area Beats: The SHE'S
You've probably been seeing this next band around town for a while, on line-ups at clubs like Bottom of the Hill and The Independent. They've been playing the show circuit for over four years and have a following that stretches as far as London, England.
Almost unbelievably, they're still in high school! "SHE'S" is an acronym of the members first names: Sammy Perez, Hannah Valente, Eva Treadway, and Sinclair Riley. They met in kindergarten, forming their first band in fifth grade.
They've been best friends and musical comrades ever since; citing The Donnas, 60s girl groups, Hawaii and The Beach Boys as inspiration for their harmony-heavy California sound.
Alyssa Kapnik spoke with all four members about the pitfalls and positives of being an all female rock band making it big, while keeping up with calculus, in this special Noise Pop edition of Bay Area Beats.
The SHE'S are performing Saturday afternoon at Amoeba Records in San Francisco.
