San Antonio-based band “Girl in a Coma” will open for Dresden Dolls at the Granada Theater in Dallas Nov. 19. After releasing a series of three Adventures in Coverland EPs on 7-inch vinyl in April, Girl in a Coma made the tracks available on CD October 19. The new Adventures in Coverland album includes the original seven critically acclaimed EP tracks plus three new tracks. These new songs include a vibrant update of Buffalo Springfield’s ‘60s protest anthem “For What It’s Worth,” a new original Girl in a Coma song, “Yo Oigo,” which has also been chosen to be featured in Robert Rodriguez’s new movie Machete this September, plus an acoustic version of their song “BB.”The trio (sisters Nina and Phanie Diaz and their friend Jenn Alva) were cherry picked by Joan Jett for her Blackheart Records label, and have toured extensively with Morrissey, at the personal invitation of the man who penned the song that inspired their name. It’s perhaps therefore fitting that GIAC’s Adventures In Coverland pays homage to the genealogy of their much-vaunted sound.
