Girlpool Connects with Vulnerability and Friendship

In the middle of Girlpool’s show last week at Republic, guitarist Cleo Tucker laughed at her bandmate and best friend Harmony Tividad as the two joked about how amazing it would be if Starbucks had a gas station. The audience, a modest crowd clad in baggy jeans, button up shirts, and grunge hair styles, giggled along with the band.

The Orwells grow up in all the right ways

The members of the Orwells don't need to be reminded of their youth; writers can't leave the topic alone. Yes, the members of the band were all in high school when they started playing. They love to get wasted onstage, but they aren't even 20 yet. At a quick glance, the five Orwells seem like some party kids who got lucky and can now do what they did in garages in front of audiences in clubs.
