The Coathangers are living proof that there's no excuse to sit on your ass and NOT start a rock 'n' roll band. In 2006, the quartet of women from Atlanta found themselves sharing a predilection for good times and good tunes, so they learned how to play guitars, keys, and drums, and formed a band that instantly won audiences over. Now touring in support of their third album, Larceny and Old Lace, released last year on Suicide Squeeze records, their musical chops are considerably honed, with songs that are an engaging blend of styles, including charging rock ("Hurricane"), sultry disco-feel ("My Baby"), and classic-style girl-group tracks, incorporating "oohs" and "ahhs" alongside punk-rock swerve. All four members sing on each track and switch up vocal duties, making their music feel and sound like a collaborative effort among friends. MARANDA BISH
