Recording: LOLAA

Artist: LOLAA


Recorded at Monarch Tavern (Fundraiser Show for Mexico & Puerto Rico), November 9, 2017.

LOLAA - Lola

A life in rock'n'roll gives many chances for rebirths and reinventions, so while the 2008 version of me would have been excited at the idea of a fundraiser featuring members of Forest City Lovers, Spiral Beach, Gentleman Reg and Magneta Lane, the 2017 version of me was perhaps more excited to see these musicians brimming with the energy of new music and new ideas. Organized by LOLAA to raise funds to rebuild Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria and Mexico after the earthquakes, there was a lot of positive energy all around throughout the night.

A new project from sisters Lexi Valentine and Nadia King (formerly of Magneta Lane), LOLAA exchanges slashing guitars for 80's-flavoured pop and an embrace of their Mexican heritage. With lots of love for glitter and dancing, even when slowing down there was a lot of propulsion to their songs. The band has an EP under their belt and a neon sign of their band name, so they're probably ready to rock a stage near you quite soon.
