Sisters Jennifer and Jessie Clavin hail from the San Fernando Valley and form the band Bleached. Crunchy guitars and a driving beat hearken back to grittier days in the 818... lollipops and hints of darkness and fun. Their debut album Ride Your Heart drops on April 2.
They were both in Mika Miko until the band broke up in 2009 then Jennifer sang in Cold Cave for a year. She told Nardwuar that the singer for Vivian Girls stole her jeans.
Don't miss the gals - they're playing twice - at Red 7 Patio on Thursday, March 15 and again at the Hotel Vegas Patio on Friday, March 15.
And don't miss Jennifer's...
