Happy Anniversary To The Donnas

Those rockin' ladies, The Donnas are celebrating their 16th anniversary today. In those 16 years, Brett Anderson (lead vocals), Torry Castellano (drums/vocals), Maya Ford (bass/vocals) and Allison Robertson (guitars/vocals), over the span of seven records, have released some great music. They've started their own label Purple Feather Records which their last record Bitchin' was released, a record they wrote/co-wrote all the tunes and co-produced (vinyl lovers, you can find Bitchin' on purple vinyl ... surely you know what format I bought).

The Donnas are a busy bunch of ladies. They've just put out a live DVD released via their Underground Shoppe. They've got a new record that will be released soon. They'll also be hitting the road with Blondie and Pat Benatar as well as doing some headlining shows. Sadly, The Donnas announced that Castellano will be taking time off to deal with an ongoing shoulder problem so she won't be on the road this summer but their friend Amy Cesari from The Demonics will be filling in. Have a speedy recovery Torry!

Happy Anniversary ladies! Here's to many more years of rockin'!
