Gretchen's Disco Plague (It's Infectious!)


Listen to Girl Action (Get Some)

Gretchen Phillips can be a control freak. But does that really serve the music? Does that really make for a good time? Not always. So this long-standing Austin musician who played at the very first SXSW ever, this proud winner of the Austin Chronicle Music Poll's Hall of Fame, this little old lady who fronted such groundbreaking lezzie rock bands as Two Nice Girls, Meat Joy, Girls in the Nose, Blobbie, and the Gretchen Phillips Xperience is all about improvisation now. Gretchen's Disco Plague (It's Infectious!) make up songs on the spot for the amount of time allotted. Such musical luminaries as Thor Harris (Swans), Amy Cook, Darcee Douglas (Swine King) and many more don sparkly outfits and make sweet musical love to each other all in the name of the present moment. Just to celebrate the present. This very second.
