On March 15, 2011, Me, Leilani Roser, and Magen Tracy put together the very first Ladies Coverband Night at Precinct! It was a huge hit, everyone loved it, and we had a blast learning our favorite music and challenging ourselves! Thank you to Leilani Roser for the awesome concept, and Lessa Coyne for creating this amazing poster! Also, thank you to Women’s Rock Brunch for doing our photoshoot!
I’m so excited to present the poster for this years Ladies Coverband Nights! Holland Dieringer is a local artist and yoga instructor in Boston, and I just love her artwork. Let’s get this show on the road!
To finish out the Country Sparrows Show at Precinct, Bitch Trifecta covered Dolly Parton! It was a great honor to learn her music, and to wear red lipstick and a wig. I was quite moved by Dolly’s lyrics, which are so full of personal experience and her Tennessee mountain upbringing. I was so lucky to work with my usual band Eric Landers and Rob Johanson. This show was the first time Robin Melendez sang with us, and it’s been a year now since! Other musicians who played with us: Betty Widerski from Ginger Ibex, Holland Dieringer from Fly Upright Kite, and Kyle Fredrickson from The Everyday Visuals (he’s moved to LA now… ….)
Most of the photos are thanks to my mother Hei Park. I think there are also some photos by Anne Cook.
I thought it would be nice to post about the Ladies Coverband Night Shows from last year. The Country Sparrows was a country-themed show which opened with a Singers in the Round, followed by full bands covering Lucinda Williams and Dolly Parton.
Jean Sullivan did an amazing rendition of Lucinda Williams, and everyone LOVED seeing her sing for a full set. Usually she plays bass and sings back up in a great band called Left Hand Does, so it’s not everyday we get to see her fronting her own group! Here are some photos from that night.
I thought it would be nice to take a look at past Ladies Coverband Nights! Ladies Coverband Night is a chance for women in Boston Music Scene to cover their favorite National Acts! So far we’ve had two successful nights of it, both at Precinct in Somerville, MA. Here are a few photos from our Country Sparrows Night 11/29/11!
The night started out with a singers in the round:
All of these ladies have their own shows and artistic projects! Give ‘em a google!
I have some amazing shows for you, and I’m so excited to show you what I got! Just to get all of you up to date: The Bitch Trifecta family is growing and coming atcha!
Robin Melendez (from Smokin’ Pigeons) has been singing back-up vocals with us for almost a year now! Also added to the roster as a rhythm guitarist (of all dang things) is the multi-instrumentalist and former lead singer of Battleships Cometh Leilani Roser! The last two shows I was very lucky to play with bassist Francisco Morales, and he’s definitely earned his honorary Trifecta Badge!

I promise to become more sophisticated for the next post!
Yeah…my last email just didn’t cut it. I didn’t give you what you want. I didn’t explain what I want. I just want to sit beside you, hold your hand, cause I LIKE YOU SO MUCH??? IS THAT WRONG??? IS IT WRONG TO COMBINE TWO MONTHLY UPDATES INTO ONE??? I DON’T KNOW MUCH??? BUT I KNOW I LOVE YOU???
Ahem. So, maybe you got a download card a few months ago, and I told you that you could DL my album at your convenience. I wasn’t able to get my CD Baby account up and running back then, but this is NOW, and I got my CD Baby right hea: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/bitchtrifecta2
And PLEASE “like” ME on Facebook! Don’t you already like me in real life? Or Second Life? Or iLife? Don’t gotta’ life (bitch, please)? Exclusive blog updates, downloads, and weird animal facts: www.facebook.com/btrifecta (some bitch took my band name!)
In my emails I try to come across as a very expressive, heavy breathing individual. Feel my breath on your skin, my words on your brow–that’s really uncomfortable, I know, but I do it for you. You’ll feel like I feel, you’ll feel like you’ve been felt, and then you’ll feel it over and over again. Then after I do it, Ginger Ibex will do it, and after them, Rick Berlin’s Nickel n Dime Band will do it. Catch my Club Passim? Catch my only feeling? Do you like it?
I like you. So much. (Now whisper it, “…i…like..you……so..much…”)
You want links? I’ll give you something to link about. See the SHOW SCHEDULE below.
