@ladybitsband // KRISHANTI: guitar • ERIN: drums • NIKKI: bass
Who are you currently crushing aka your WCE?
KRISHANTI - Lizzo is fucking killing it right now - we saw her perform last year and she ripped into the sound guy for being a sexist d-bag. Still swooning over that moment. ERIN - I agree w/ Krishanti that Lizzo is all over my world right now. Also The Tuts are my favorites to follow while they are on tour with the Skints. The Tuts are 100% DIY and are killing the game right now. NIKKI - There are a lot of inspiring women leading the resistance against the current administration who I'm in awe of. I've been really into Chelsea Handler's talk show of late, which provides a platform for women to speak their minds about the current political nightmare. Also she's badass and hilarious!
Who would you Freaky Friday with and why?
KRISHANTI - Can you Freaky Friday with a dog? I'm gonna say I'd swap bodies with my parents' puppy Margo, mostly because I want her to feel the joy of ordering a pizza and eating a whole slice, not just the piece of crust she gets. Also I think I could enjoy napping all day.
What's the most New York thing about you?
NIKKI - I'm from Australia, and I've been in NYC for less than a year, but it has quickly become my home. The most New York about me is how quickly and happily I've settled into living in a tiny room in an expensive apartment in Brooklyn surrounded by a constant cacophony of ice cream trucks, sirens, construction and subwoofers cranked so loud they set off car alarms.
You have the chance to meet one of your idols and ask them one question; who would it be and what would you ask?
ERIN - Dave Grohl... ummmm.... Once I discovered my skill for talking I would ask him to teach me some drum fills. haha :)
What are you up to now? Shamelessly plug yourself!
KRISHANTI - We just finished a lil tour and are about to record a new EP, which will be released this summer. We are also doing an east coast tour at the end of June with our buds Basic Bitches!
What is your favorite website or blog?
ERIN - Currently....Bitch Media, cats of instagram, She Shreds Mag, Tom Tom Mag & The Skimm
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
KRISHANTI - Playing in a 90s Club Hits cover band. ERIN - I second this:) NIKKI Absolutely!
What is your favorite movie or book right now?
NIKKI - I'm a real sci fi nerd, and am currently re-reading a bunch of Ray Bradbury books including The Illustrated Man, which is my favourite selection of short stories ever. In a similar vein, I'm also really excited to see what the remake of Blade Runner is gonna be like. I hope it doesn't suck!
What is your favorite color?
KRISHANTI - something at the intersection of cerulean, cyan, and cobalt
Outside of your current career or passion, what would you spend the rest of your life doing?
KRISHANTI - Is the Freaky Friday with a puppy still an option?? ERIN - I'd open up my own Cat Cafe. NIKKI - Travelling. Everywhere! So many places to see, so little time.
