Fans worldwide have come to love L7’s heavy, catchy, riff-oriented guitar grind. Since their recording career began in 1987, L7 have released six studio albums, one live album, and one greatest hits release spawning underground and mainstream hits Shove, Pretend We’re Dead, Shit List, Andres, and Fuel My Fire. Their music has also been featured in numerous film soundtracks (“Natural Born Killers”) and video games (Rock Band 2)

L7 have toured the world over in small clubs, concert halls, and large festivals. They also starred in John Water’s 1994’s “Serial Mom,” and a rockumentary “The Beauty Process” directed by Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic.

The L.A. based band formed in 1985 consisting of Donita Sparks: guitar and vocals, Suzi Gardner: guitar and vocals, Dee Plakas: drums, and at various times Jennifer Finch, Gail Greenwood, and Janis Tanaka on bass have also performed at numerous benefit concerts for Greenpeace, Act Up L.A., and Rock For Choice (which they formed in 1991 with the Feminist Majority Foundation)
Death Valley Girls
Death Valley Girls
Think of Death Valley Girls as an acid-tripping science experiment that’s been buried alive, and resurrected as a sexually liberated dystopian chain-gang. A cosmic scar, if you will, on the hills of Echo Park, where the experiment began in 2013 by proto-punk Bonnie Bloomgarden and guitarist Larry Schemel — who got lost in the desert, returned to their haunted garage in Echo Park, and pieced together their vision with shopworn images of sexploitation babes, a blood-soaked Iggy Pop, and Bloomgarden’s series of phantasms, the result of spending a year in a mental institution, where she planned her neon-glowing odyssey by listening to Black Sabbath and UFO, reading about alien conspiracy theories, and deriving her band’s moral compass from a line she saw in a movie:

“Everybody’s gotta be in a gang,” from campy sexploitation romp Switchblade Sisters (1975).
