HG Diary

Hey, Gurl’s diary, like Law and Order, is ripped straight from the headlines…but those from the gurls in the band, as opposed to, say The New York Daily News.

  • How Draya Got Her Drums Back

    How Draya Got Her Drums Back

    If you recall, in January we asked for your help. Some loser-of-all-losers had the gall to steal Draya’s drums! It was heart-wrenching. She had just bought a new kit, she was all excited and kicking ass. Then BOOM! Gone. Cops were called. Tears were shed. A thief was cursed.

    Then the magic happened. Just a few weeks ago…well, let Draya tell you herself:

    I was eating a delicious burger on my lunch break when I got a call from someone in my phone that I had entered as “Rachel Drum Chick” (she sold me the drums). I thought it was strange that she was calling me. I picked up, and she said she’d found my drums!!! They were at a pawn shop pretty far south (the theft happened where I live, pretty far north).

    I put a hold on the drums until I could get the original investigator of my case down there. The APD cop was super nice. And since I had described the drums exactly in my police report months earlier, he went and picked them up for me!

    So thank you, Hey, Gurl fans across the city. This just goes to show that when one person is a *&^%$#@! classless loser sonofa *&@%$, there are many other wonderful guardian angels who will use karma and their good grace to make shit right.

  • Hey, Gurl and Chasca Share Their Love of Mike Truth and his Replacement Killers

    June 3, 2013
    Hey, Gurl and Chasca!!!

    Hey, Gurl and Chasca love many things, including one Mike Truth.

    May 31, 2013 will live in infamy, or infidelity, or something like that.

    Hey, Gurl was honored with the invitation to play as part of Mike Truth’s 20th Anniversary of rocking Austin, Texas under his well-known moniker.

    Making the night even more special was the guys from Chasca making the trip from down south to cheer us on.

    We love you guys and covet your makeup artist and rogue team of personal shoppers. Thank you for taking the glam bus all the way to Austin!

  • Hey, Gurl Screaming Like Goats Who Scream Like Humans

    Our very own Marci tweeted some Vine brilliance:

  • Help Hey, Gurl Find Draya’s Stolen Drums!

    Draya's Stolen Drums (snare & low tom)

    Draya’s Stolen Drums (snare & low tom) – Photography by Maurice, though it’s been crudely Photoshopped to aid this investigation

    Some no-count, miscreant, low-life, d-bag stole two of Draya’s drums earlier this week!

    The theft occurred at her Northwest Austin apartment complex and the m#$%^&f&^%$# got away with her snare and low tom.

    Thing is, they are are extremely recognizable drums: bright sparkly red with a black stripe around them.

    We’d appreciate any help you can lend: tweeting this page, posting it on Facebook, or visiting LoserDouchebagsWhoSteal.com to see if you see the criminal & her drums. And if you visit music stores and/or pawn shops, please keep an eye out.

    Thanks for your help. Hey, Gurl will keep rocking—they can steal our gear, but they can’t steal our RAWK.

  • Hanson. MMMBop. Oh HELL Yeah!

    October 18, 2012

    Hey, Gurl is always working on new songs and we aim to debut a new one or two at each show.

    And while some song ideas are embraced, others are mocked relentlessly before being discarded like an old dishcloth.

    But when the idea to cover Hanson’s “MMMBop” was floated, well, oh yeah, lemme tell ya, it was a unanimous celebration of epic proportions.

    We shared smiles, hugs, hi-fives, and stories of how cute we thought the boys would be (once they hit puberty).

    But I digress. Until we debut this baby at Red Eyed Fly on November 10, here’s the video to get you through your daily grind.

  • 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

    October 8, 2012

    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’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???

  • Draya Gone, If Better “Drumer”

    August 13, 2012


    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!

    August 8, 2012
    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!
