Thick Red Wine releasing Homesick EP, celebrating tomorrow night at Bottom of the Hill

Thick Red Wine – the project of New Jersey transplant Mike Wojciechowski – drops its new Homesick EP next Tuesday, November 11 via Breakup Records, and he's celebrating tomorrow night at Bottom of the Hill with The Wytches and Rich Girls. Homesick, which kicks off with "Marathon" (a track released as a single over the summer), maintains the anti-folk feel lyrically, but takes a decided (and welcome) step instrumentally in the direction of rock. This isn't exactly Bob Dylan going electric at the Newport Folk Festival – hell, Wojciechowski even admits in "Whiskey, Green Tea" that "I'm not Dylan. I'm [...]

Rich Girls open for The Raveonettes at Bimbo’s 365 Club

Photos by J. Schuchard Visa delays blow. There's no getting around it. But sometimes a visa mishap for one English band (Coves) means a serendipitous night for a local up-and-comer. This past Monday Rich Girls, fronted by Luisa Black, formerly of The Blacks, seized the opportunity to open for The Raveonettes at the super-swank Bimbo's 365 Club in North Beach. Black was accompanied by August Churchill on guitar and Chris Sipe on drums, both dressed (as per usual) in suits. After a successful single release show at Brick & Mortar for "Worse" off their Fiver EP out October 7 (Breakup Records,) Rich Girls exuded the poise [...]

Premiere: Rich Girls debut new music video for “Worse”

Three well-dressed individuals walk into a screening room at a police station. A bit tattered, but nonetheless looking their best. An overheard voice refers to them as "suspects." The woman on the far right moves her glasses in the utmost sassy manner. This is the first sight from the new video from local indie group Rich Girls, for their song "Worse," which was directed by Stokes McIntyre. The video is about the mysterious death of the band's audience at a show, and includes each of the members being questioned about it. Luisa Black, frontwoman of Rich Girls reimagines early 00's indie rock, [...]

This Saturday Rich Girls will be hitting Bottom of the Hill with local lady-fronted friends Everyone Is Dirty and Happy Fangs.

Don't miss this estrogen fueled night that's sure to be filled with swirling pop with a bite. Check out Rich Girls' music video for "Sink Like Stones" below. Listen to the debut EP [...]

Rich Girls to play debut show at the Make-Out Room

Following the release of their debut album The One I Want this past November, Rich Girls, the solo project of former The Blacks front-woman Luisa Black, will be playing their first show at the Make-Out Room on January 16. The new act, which takes some musical elements from Black's former work, offers a poppy summer-daze feel with a subtle garage rock sound. The track “Sink Like Stones” (video below) features Black’s reverbed vocal abilities, a head-bobbing rhythm section, and an anthemic sound that could compliment any road trip playlist beautifully. The end result: a band that's pop-centric and melodic yet [...]

Luisa Black, formerly of The Blacks, has a new solo project called Rich Girls, and she's dropping her first release under that moniker, an EP entitled The One I Want, out November 18 via Tricycle Records. Now, just in time for Halloween, Rich Girls has a decidedly scary video for the debut single "Sink Like Stones", and we're extremely excited to be premiering it here on The Bay Bridged for All Hallows' Eve. After the break-up of The Blacks in 2010, Black chose not to assemble a new band and instead began work on a series of demos, writing and [...]
