Having a soft spot in my heart for Women Drummers, I showed up early for Tom GRRRL’s West Tour Kick-off Show at Cheer Up Charlie’s in Austin the first day of December 2012. After seeing Rachel play with several bands in recent years, I was looking forward to seeing her and Daniel John for the first time. It simply was the absolute best show I have seen Rachel play … and the first time her smile matched her drumsticks.

Rachel is one with her drums in a fundamental and nicely obvious sort of way. The stronger she plays the better it is. For once, her band mate can match her intensity. Experiencing Daniel John – musically and visually – is something to behold.

If you live in any of the cities listed below – please go to their show – or send info to friends in those towns.
