Skating Polly played at the Cactus Club last week Friday Night and I have to say I was stunned. The band is two teenage girls, one 12 the other 17, Payton and Kelli. They both can sing, play guitar, keyboard and drums.They have been compared to Babes in Toyland and Nirvana. I was skeptical myself but when I heard them I was in awe. They are amazing at such a young age.
The older sister spent most of the set on drums and reminded me very much of Meg White in White Stripes and when she took the lead on guitar and vocals she was reminiscent of Sarah from Gospel Gossip, an awesome shoe gaze band from Minnesota. The younger who spent most time on lead vocals was born to be on stage. She just blew me away.
I had gone with a friend and both of us were floored when it was over and left wanting more. We got a home made cd that has 4 songs on it and I got a tshirt of course. Although they rocked it on stage the cd was alot sweeter than the live show was. I think they are doing phenominal and I am looking forward to watching them climb to fame.
