Girl In A Coma played Best Buy Union Square NYC

Girl In A Coma are a band from San Antonio, Texas and consists of Jenn Alva (bass), Phanie Diaz (drums) and Nina Diaz (vocals and guitars). They have recorded 2 albums “Both Before I’m Gone” and “Trio B.C.” and have traveled the world opening up for bands such as Morrissey, Social Distortion and Tegan and Sara. The band is on Joan Jett’s Black Heart Records’ label and just released their latest album titled, “Adventures in Coverland” which features the bands take on songs by Velvet Underground, Joy Division and The Beatles…I’m surprised there wasn’t an Elvis cover on the album because Jenn is such a huge fan. My favorite track is their cover of Selena’s “Si Una Vez” a song entirely in Spanish which is guaranteed to make you move. They stopped by Best Buy in NYC to play an acoustic set which sounded great mixing originals and covers. I love their usual show with the electric guitar and loud bass and drumming, but the acoustic sets really showcase Nina’s voice which can get lost in the mix during shows. The bass is clear, you can hear the lyrics and I think they should incorporate this more in their live show. They definitely rocked…can’t wait to see them again!
