Girl in a Coma

I first heard about Girl in a Coma when Morrissey asked the San Antonio band to go on tour with him this fall. The Smiths connection might be the ladies' claim to fame; their adoration for all things Morrissey has inspired the band’s name (a play on the Smiths’ song “Girlfriend in a Coma”) and even lead singer Nina Diaz's lyrical sensibility, which tends to occupy the morose anti-love song territory that Moz enjoyed so much. But the Girl(s) also have a sound to call their own; think a female Morrissey (stay with me now) fronting Sleater Kinney and you'll get a sense of how much these ladies rock.

You can catch Girl in a Coma tomorrow night with another awesome band, the Cliks, at Fitzgerald's.
