About Girl Trouble

Girl Trouble


Girl Trouble:
Girl Trouble played their first show in March, 1984 for a Battle of the Bands at Fort Steilacoom Community College. They came in second. Coming in second has been the life blood of one of the longest running bands in the Pacific Northwest. Their motto? "See us now, or see us later, eventually you'll have to see us". Simply wearing people down has been a successful career strategy for this Tacoma foursome. They've released albums on most every independent record label in the PNW, toured the US, Canada and Europe, published 24 Wig Out! fanzines, and are featured in the documentary "Strictly Sacred, The Story of Girl Trouble".

For Girl Trouble's 40th anniversary celebration, the band has selected a series of special guest singers to open the show. These amazing vocalists will take turns performing a Girl Trouble song with the band. A regular Girl Trouble set will follow and, time permitting, an all-cover dance set will close the show.

Dale, KP, Kahuna and Bon say: We hope you can join us for this special night of head-bobbing, finger-snapping, toe-tapping entertainment.
