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

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!

Help Hey, Gurl Find Draya’s Stolen Drums!

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 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.

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.
