Music Scene: April 21–27
Los Angeles’ punk rock princess, The Fabulous Miss Wendy, is on tour with Alaskan duo Mythological Horses and will gallop into town for a show.
The Rock + Roll Ride America Tour featuring the Hollywood-born Miss Wendy will stop from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 25, at Cruisers Bar, 715 Horizon Drive.
Miss Wendy first picked up a guitar at age 10 and formed several bands during her high school years.
“The fearless young rocker opted for the Musicians Institute in Hollywood where she really spread her wings — or at very least sharpened her cute little horns. Her intense energy, powerhouse vocals, and calculated songwriting skills sent her soaring to the head of the class, earning her the opportunity to carry her RN’R message to the American troops stationed overseas in Baghdad, Iraq, on 2 musical ‘tours of duty,’” according to thefabulousmisswendy.com.
Miss Wendy released her self-titled debut LP in 2011 and six of the album’s 10 tracks appeared on the VH1 shows “The Pick-Up Artist” and “Tough Love.”
Side note: Miss Wendy’s bass player, Jedediah Aaker, is a regular on the television series “Portlandia” and he joins her on this tour.
