Theyve got a Hemi.
Imagine an ultra-potent engine genetically spliced with a female power punk barracuda dressed as Divine the drag queen and you have Hemi Cuda, a duo of vinyl bra, platform shoe- and neon wig-wearing vocalist/strummers named Anika Zappe and Karen Exley. The hotties hail from Denver, where their high-energy show has been proving for years that feminists come in all shapes, sizes and rainbowy colors.
If John Waters is thinking about penning a new film, Hemi Cuda should provide the soundtrack for the scene where the chubby Ricki Lake character is shooting down the snotty popular girl. Watch Hemi Cuda throw down at Jack Quinn's with openers Prague Spring on Sunday night, because there's no better way to start your week than with strong women from outer space rocking your world.
