Response to the LA Times review of the El Rey show from Entertainment Today

Blurb about Fake PartyA performance art piece Carla Bozulich performed at the MAK Haus in LA.

Review of the Fibbers at the Palace from the UCLA newspaper.

Show review of Fibbers opening for Joan Osborne. The guy totally savages the Fibbers but I don't know what's worse--his lack of taste or his stupidity (check out the line about Courtney Love on a "heroine" binge). Haha, they fixed the spelling error but you can still laugh your ass off cuz they don't know a good George Jones cover when they hear one. Morons. I laughed so hard I cried.

Brief blurb about the Fibbers SXSW show. Scroll down a bit for the review.

Review of a Rock for Choice show on the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade in 1995. This is allegedly the Fibbers debut as a band (not the case see the 1994 gig with Royal Trux).

New Coat of Paint: A Tribute to Tom Waits (features Carla Bozulich, Nels Cline, and Bill Tutton, among others)

A glowing review of the whole tribute, but also gives Carla and Nels' contribution distinction.
