She Wants Revenge, Nico Vega Warehouse Live June 12, 2011
Aftermath made our way into Warehouse Live Saturday night, expecting to dance our pants off to some She Wants Revenge, whom we had put on the backburner after we overcame and outgrew our angsty, teenage years. But there was a surprise waiting for us inside - a beautiful, hard-rocking bombshell of a band that made remember that rock and roll can be sexy for male concertgoers, too.
As we walked inside, a woman in a white dress onstage asked all the ladies present to put their hands into the air. She then began to chant, "I won't be afraid of anything! I won't be afraid of anything!" as the venue was filled with the shrill screams of every woman in attendance.
Wishing we had arrived earlier, we made our way to the merch tables to find out the band's name. Nico Vega, we learned, have been to Houston before; what we still don't know, however, is why we had never heard of them before Saturday.
