“I think the fact that I’m still here representing a band makes it mean even more to me. I love the fact that when we were kids there weren’t any bands in our scene that had female singers (especially locally). It was few and far between, and I love that we sort of trudged through the scene and kind of made it out of the scene, and now here we are and it just makes it more special. To know that tonight, whatever I do, I’ll be able to look out and see them or be next to them.”
