"a heavily knitted quilted break down...."


"True crochet's men...."

"Black Girls is a saucy blend of glam, pop, and hip hop mixed with jazzy-funk, snuff fueled, psychedelic dance power rock and roll. Standing by the stage and gazing up at the Black Girls, I can't help but be reminded of the ancient Greek warriors, tall, buff, and sturdy, ready to become champions of the world. All of a sudden the lights dim, smoke fills the room and lasers blend aimlessly with everything, creating art in the air before me. The music starts. Drums break in, smooth, full, and driving, then there is a dancing bass beat that thumps through my soul, the guitar sweeps in and takes me to a place far beyond the realms of normality and it's all tied together when the vocals start, rolling through rhythms rumored to have summoned the lords above.... Black Girls is the post modern, hip pop, surf and turf rock band we have all been waiting for. Needless to say, Black Girls is the new black."
