  1. Not to sound mean but I bet 99 percent of us on here never heard of her and the band.

  2. Not true, or maybe i am in the 1 percent as u say...any way i saw the band at a local record shop on michigan where they did a short set...even bought the cd that yea i did "hear of her and her band....r.i.p. Bianca.

  3. Saw them at Emo's one night and they put on a rad show. Then traded shirts with them the next day at a gas station in the desert where we were filling up too. Very cool band their merch/roadie/driver was cool as well.
