AWWW... Memories.. 11-01-05!

I know Lila remembers this one..

a article about the EXIT Gals!!

CONCERT PREVIEW: EXIT enters SDSU on 'Center' stage
Female rock quartet gets attention from U2 and critics alike
By: Garrett Pruter, Contributor
Issue date: 11/9/06 Section: Tempo

One year ago, a group of four female rockers caused quite a stir at a
U2 concert in Los Angeles when Bono pulled them on stage in front of a
sold-out crowd during U2's second encore.

"We painted a sign that said, 'The Girls Play Rock 'n' Roll,' which is
a play off of the line 'The boys play rock 'n' roll' in U2's
'Vertigo,'" EXIT bassist Susan "Affa" Hamilton said.

"Bono saw the sign and recognized us because we had been to a lot of U2
shows in the past and was like, 'Are you serious? Can you girls really
play?'"

The women of EXIT, a Los Angeles-based band consisting of Hamilton,
Trevi Fligg (vocals), Courtney "Captive" Lavender (guitar) and Pamela
"Dim" Bluestein (drums), played and garnered a lot of attention when
they stormed the stage with a cover of U2's "Out of Control."

"It was one of those big fan dreams, to play with a band like U2," Affa
said. "We were strangely comfortable in front of the audience. Because
we have been playing for so many years, we filled the stage a bit
better than most people expected. We got a lot of attention from that."

The buzz that had been circulating since the band first formed in 1997
seemed to explode after this historic incident. Ever since, EXIT has
been rapidly accumulating attention from fans and the media alike.

"EXIT has the mysterious 'it (factor)' that so many bands can only
dream of having," said Todd Richards, host of "Running Late" on WBWC-FM
Radio in Cleveland. "They are powerful, evoking and emotionally
impactful. Not enough adjectives? Get into this band now before you can
no longer claim that you 'Knew about them before everyone else.'"

One of the mysterious "it" factors is the way EXIT maintains its status
as an all-female band in an industry that has for so long been
dominated by males. But the times, they are a-changin'.

"We try to not rely on the fact that we are females," Affa said. "We
try not to be a cliche of being associated with bands like the Go-Go's
and The Bangles."

EXIT certainly steers clear of becoming a novelty act. Instead, Affa
said the band identifies much more with bands like U2, The Who and Pink
Floyd.

"We just try to be honest in everything that we write," Affa said.
"Everything comes from true feelings and true experiences, whether it's
a positive feeling or something negative. If you bring something fake
or pretentious, the audience will see right through it."

-EXIT will play at noon today on the Aztec Center Patio.




sooo cool they are playing at my alma mater.

I saw Exit perform in San Diego last night at the San Diego Sports Club. Missed their noon show at SDSU though. They sounded great! They've been recording their own material and are currently mixing a cd that should be out in December. Get on their mailing list to be kept up to date on their latest info! Trevi's got an awesome voice and all of the girls just ROCK! Two of them will be at the show in Hawaii

That was a fantastic moment. My daughter and I were on the rail on Edge's side of the stage that night.
