Today we're spending Seven Questions In Heaven with Wise Girl's Abby Weitz!
Describe your music to our readers who may not be familiar with you.
Our music is power pop/rock. It's rock and roll music with really catchy melodies and hooks that get stuck in your head!
Who are your musical influences and idols?
The Muffs, Weezer, Letters To Cleo, The Beatles, Beach Boys, Ramones, Elvis Costello, Tegan and Sara, there are so many. Some of my idols are Elvis Costello, Kim Shattuck, Kathleen Hanna, and John Lennon.
What was the first album, cassette, or CD you bought with your own money?
Meet The Beatles! I was about 7 years old and I used my allowance to buy a used cassette.
What was the strangest gig you've ever played?
Our first show ever at a venue here in Manhattan called Fat Baby was more terrible than weird. They had put a new sound guy on and the room was PACKED and it was just a complete shit show. I actually stopped in the middle of a song and started yelling at the poor sound guy which was not very professional of me but so many people came out to the show and the sound was beyond horrible. Everything was feeding back and this guy clearly had no idea what he was doing and I was furious.
What's the first thing you look for when you hit a new town?
The first thing that I ask myself when we hit a new town is "Where the hot guys at?" Hahaha, it's so true. Guys do it all the time, why can't we?
If they named an ice cream flavor after you, what would be the name and why?
Bootylicious 'cause I don't think you're ready for this jelly ;)
Final question: You're the opening act of a music festival. You can get any five artists, living or dead, to perform on the bill with you. Which five do you choose and what song do you all perform as the final jam?
Can I count all of The Beatles as one? I'm going to. The Beatles, Elvis Costello, Kim Shattuck, Kathleen Hanna, and Joey Ramone. I would want to all play a Wise Girl song just so I could say they all performed one of my songs.
