Now playing in a parking lot near you

"KSM is a chick band that plays catchy hard rock songs, and they're just about what you'd expect. Nothing deep or meaningful, like Monday being their least favorite day takes up a song (seems familiar). On the other hand, for their genre they're not too bad, good melodies, appropriately wise ass trashy vocals and a generally obnoxious "who says girls can't play guitars" 'tude. So you're asking, okay, how are they different from all the previous girl bands? Well, their website has an answer, "They're younger, looser and they rock so much harder." Right. Looser.
You can catch them tomorrow at the Lancaster Wal-Mart parking lot (I did not make that up), but things are looking up for them, a TV gig and a tour as a backup are coming this fall. Is there any reason you should care about any of this? Not if you're an adult, I'd say check back in ten years or so, after some drugs, failed romances and a band breakup or two, because there is some talent here, and perhaps someday some serious music could result. For now it's purely teeny party fodder."
