We called Pretty Girls Make Graves bassist Derek Fudesco at about noon and he was in no shape to answer questions. "Let me just, right off the bat, say I apologize; we played New York last night, and I had a very late night, and I'm little hung over, and I'm laying in the back of the van." It's cool, Derek, we won't hold that against you, but we will admit we're a little jealous of your rock 'n' roll lifestyle. Hopefully, Houston will provide a party as well when PGMG stops at the Meridian today.
Lead by vocalist Andrea Zollo, the Seattle group delivers punk rock with a metal feel. Its songs keep audiences moving but give way for guitar solos and interesting rhythmic breakdowns. Zollo is known for her ability to scream in key, but these days she tones it down a bit for a more soulful touch. Hopefully the band will be well-rested when they play today -- Dusti Rhodes
