Marci Got a Keytar!!!

The Beauty, The Splendor, The Keytar

The Beauty, The Splendor, The Keytar

If you bought stock in Hey, Gurl’s burgeoning frontwoman/keyboardist, Marci, you’re going to be happy.

For her birthday, her incredibly awesome and surprisingly cool parents purchased for her just about the coolest present a child could receive from their bearers:  a keytar.

When talking about how she may incorporate the keytar into upcoming shows, Marci slyly mused about the possibilities of voice sampling: “Maybe I’ll hide subliminal messages in our music…like, ‘You will buy us a drink’…and just loop it through ‘MmmBop.'”

Brilliant, our Marci is.

In Hey, Gurl, There’s No Room for Nepotism

No Nepotism TextDraya’s brother tried to SMS his way through the integrity of our contest. BUSTED!

So rest assured, Hey, Gurl fans, we’re on the up-and-up even when it comes to providing perks for family.

As for Zac, c’mon man, you could totally shell out the $5 to see your sister RAWK.  And bring some friends while you’re at it…our shows are a blast!

In the meantime, we’re gonna let the contest go for a few more days, so go ahead and take a guess!

Saturday Night Like a Bullet

Saturday Night's Alright for Hey, Gurl

Saturday Night’s Alright for Hey, Gurl

We’re so blown away by and thankful for everyone who’s come out to our first 4 shows (2 at Red Eyed Fly and 2 at Frontier Bar).

So many people have come and rocked out with us, in fact, that we’re playing a SATURDAY NIGHT in November:

Saturday, November 10, 2012
Red Eyed Fly (Austin, Texas)
8:30PM – All Ages

We just wanted to say thanks for supporting us so far. And please bring a few friends to our next show–we promise to have some new songs and help you have a hella good time during our set.

It’s a no-brainer–how can you not have a good time singing the theme from Friends, mashed up with Outkast and George Michael???

Just Joel Immortalizes Hey, Gurl

Hey, Gurl: 4-Up

Hey, Gurl: 4-Up

Our awesome friend and super-fan, Just Joel draws. Really well.  He’s got an online comic thing going that you should totally check out.

Well, now the latest edition to his online exploits is:  US!

Hey, Gurl is super-psyched about Just Joel‘s caricatures of the band!

Thank you, Joel, for bringing out the fun, beauty, splendor, and silliness that makes HG tick.

You can check out the original photos, his original sketches, and the final products on Just Joel’s blog post “Hey, Gurl! Finalized Images!


Florence and the Machine: “Kiss With A Fist”

Draya Gone, If Better “Drumer”



Then there was the day we almost lost Draya. She was nearly stolen from Hey, Gurl by a talent scout of grand repute.

Luckily, she’s a badass drummer and this kid was only interested in a “drumer.”

Whew! Crisis averted.

Hey, Gurl’s Gotta New Website!

Hey, Gurl's Home Page

Hey, Gurl’s Home Page

If a tree falls in a forest, does it make a sound?

If you drive on a parkway, will you park on a driveway?

If a band plays a song but doesn’t have it documented on the internet, does the band actually exist?

Hey, Gurl doesn’t really care about any of these questions or their answers. But we do have a website. w00t!

Car Concert: My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay”

Just prior to Hey, Gurl’s very first show at Frontier Bar in Austin, Texas, the gurls needed to amp up, and the best way to do that was (of course) an impromptu car concert.  Here they are car-concerting My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay.”
