Lady Killer Tour Backstage Pass: Sick of Sarah, Hunter Valentine & Vanity Theft

Good news! Some of Autostraddle’s favorite all-female bands — Sick of Sarah, Hunter Valentine and Vanity Theft — will be hitting the road together for The Lady Killer Tour, a 30-date adventure across the United States in August and September.

Experience has taught me that it’s a lot more fun when what happens on tour doesn’t stay on tour. Clearly 12 lady musicians spending copious amounts of time together will lead to all sorts of trouble and hilarity, and we don’t want you to miss a moment. We’ve roped the girls from Hunter Valentine, Sick of Sarah and Vanity Theft into sharing their tales (and photos!) from the road in an epic segment we’re going to call The Lady Killer Backstage Pass. 

If the following tour video is any indication, this tour, and the backstage pass, will be nothing short of spectacular. Stay tuned for the first instalment.

    Thanks Crystal!
