Girl power and musical prowess!
Barely in their teens, all-girl, high-energy, power pop trio, Not Ur Girlfrenz is here to prove they mean business — busting out show-stealing performances with their high-energy songs, which cleverly combine instant pop/punk hooks with timeless old-school songwriting. Inheriting a love of classic rock bands (the likes of Joan Jett, U2 and Heart) from their parents and combining it with a love of current pop and rock, such as Paramore and Fall Out Boy, Not Ur Girlfrenz, Liv Haynes (14) on guitar and vocals; Maren Alford (14) on drums, and Gigi Haynes (12) on bass, quickly forged their own distinct identity. They caught the attention of Grammy-nominated songwriter Jaret Reddick of Bowling For Soup, who saw an opportunity to work with a promising and exciting new band, something vocalist Liv describes as a “pinch me moment” working alongside one of her musical heroes. The Texan superstar collaboration opened up exciting new doors — a SOLD OUT tour with Bowling For Soup, followed by a slot on the final Cross Country Vans Warped Tour, when its founder, Kevin Lyman, declared them “the future of women in rock or just rock in general” and earned Not Ur Girlfrenz the title of Youngest Touring Band in Warped’s 24-Year History! Effortlessly performing in front of such great, welcoming crowds has seen their fanbase rapidly grow. The band was featured in a recent “Girl Power” advertising campaign for Reliant Energy (with fellow Texan and movie megastar, Matthew McConaughey). The trio’s original slabs of pop/punk ear candy, “Never Stop,” “Warped” and their award-winning video, “No One Asked You Anyway,” prove that while these girls mean business, they’re here to have a lot of FUN! With the release of their EP, New Kids in America, followed by a wildly successful international debut as part of Bowling For Soup’s “Almost Christmas” U.K. tour, right now is an exciting time to join the FrenZone and ride the wave alongside Not Ur Girlfrenz.
Not Ur Girlfrenz at 7:30 p.m. before The Polyphonic Spree.
