“Toured with The Thermals, Mika Miko, These Arms Are Snakes and Young Widows”
"Performing at SXSW 2013"
What started as a joke — and an excuse to party — has grown into one of the leading all-girl rock groups to come out of Atlanta: The Coathangers. Though they lacked formal musical training, Crook Kid, Minnie, Rusty and BeBe Coathanger showed loads of charisma and an innate rock-sensibility that just can’t be taught. The Coathangers burst onto the scene in 2007 with the release of their eponymous debut LP, and created enough buzz to spawn a record deal with Suicide Squeeze. They released Scramble in 2009, and toured relentlessly with the likes of The Thermals, Mika Miko, These Arms Are Snakes and Young Widows, amassing an army of fans along the way.
Though their stripped-down sound made them famous, the girls realized the need to progress musically — and on 2011’s Larceny & Old Lace, they did just that. The album showed a broader range of songwriting and a more polished approach to instrumentation, all the while retaining their wild, house-party vibe.
