GRRRL POWER: Girl in a Coma, the newest addition to the Blackheart Records roster, is coming to Muddy Waters. And judging by their quickly growing acclaim, this won’t be a show to miss. Formed over a shared love of music, this band made up of high school best friends?—?plus one li’l sis?—?are being celebrated for their unique sound and raw talent. Though they have been playing together for six years now, their debut CD, Both Before I’m Gone, didn’t hit the shelves until May of this year. But the record is already drawing comparisons to the musical ingenuity of the Smiths, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Pixies. Girl in a Coma has already been featured on the Vans Warped Tour, and as an opening act for Morrissey and Boz Boorer, proving that some high school dreams really can come true. Don’t miss the newest thing to hit chick rock at Muddy Waters on Thursday, November 29, at 8 p.m. —Stephanie Flint
