Sick of Sarah: Bittersweet
Sick of Sarah began in Minneapolis, MN in April 2005 as an all-female band with catchy hooks, unique lyrics, and thoughtful, well-crafted music. The band displays talent, passion, and an ever-present sense of humor that shapes many of their songs. They combine sympathetic acoustic moments with driving electric rock, often in the same song. With influences ranging from John Fogerty to Joan Jett, Sleater-Kinney to Vanessa Carlton, Sick of Sarah brings an energy and blended alternative pop-rock style that will have you singing along after the first chorus.
You may have noticed there is no one named Sarah in the band. The namesake for the band is in fact a Sarah–the lead singer’s former roommate who stated one day she was just plain sick of her own name. It caught the girls’ ears and then caught on. [IODA]
I ran across this group recently and am loving their style. Like Scott who ran our San Fran show, I’m a sucker for female vocals layered on top of syrupy harmonies. If you get a chance, check out their “Los Angeles” album on Adamant as well! [cs]
