La La Vasquez

La La Vasquez, the former TRL and Flavor of Love hostess and co-star of You Got Served, is not appearing at Cairo tonight. La La Vasquez, the British girl-punk trio of bassist Rachael Finney, drummer Merida Richards, and guitarist Freya Watson, is. The girls, who came together because their boyfriends were all in a band together, make lo-fi, down-and-dirty rock music with rambling guitar lines and threepart vocal harmonies—they’ll unavoidably get compared to Grass Widow. La La Vasquez are cute and girly, but also not to be fucked with—“Claire Savage,” a song on their debut 7-inch on Captured Tracks, menacingly references and threatens a girl who once had the misfortune of starting a catfight with the band at a show. (Blood was shed, hair was pulled). ERIN K. THOMPSON
