Girl in a Coma

Details

With Pin-Up Pilot, Seared and Tribella, 8 p.m. Saturday, September 27, at Fitzgerald's, 2706 White Oak, 713-862-3838.

For everyone who digs Morrissey's sensitivity but wishes he had a little more sex appeal: Meet Nina Diaz. Occasionally referred to as the "female Morrissey," this spark plug of a singer fronts all-girl San Antonio trio Girl in a Coma after being recruited by big sister, drummer Phanie D, at age 12. Van tours and much cross-­country rocking out ensued, eventually in front of none other than Joan Jett, who signed the group to her Blackheart Records on the spot. It's clear why: The Girls' vibrant guitars recall the good old days of Smiths-style rock, perfectly complemented by Diaz's rich alto — mournful, sultry, smooth and strong.
