Paloma Ceballos writes, sings, and plays guitar for San Diego punk band Cochinas Locas. The trio of girls have been described as “unexpectedly good” (you’ll hear more about that in the interview). With an energetic set and sassy attitude, their shows are always lively. In this episode, Paloma and I talk about our respective mothers’ expectations of what good girls grow up to be, learning the necessary art of schmoozing and social media… and… slut rock?
You can check out Cochinas Locas on their Facebook. You can also watch live footage on YouTube to get a better idea of their face-blowing-off sound.

Other Notes & Thanks!
Thank you to all the artists who gave me permission to play their songs and to Paloma for agreeing to come into a hot bedroom to record.
Special thanks to: Sullen Ray who graciously allows me to use their song “Get Up Got It” as the Grrl on Grrl podcast intro and outro–listen to and buy their album Blue Minor on Bandcamp; Greg Guiliano for his financial support; and Lety Beers for her help with audio editing and knowledge.
And to all my friends who have been so supportive of this project, I love you!
Paloma was gracious enough to hunker down in my ridiculously hot bedroom to chat for Grrl on Grrl’s SECOND episode! If you listened to the first episode, you know that Devon and I talked a bit about whether or not we should cuss in the podcast. Well, Paloma throws that right out the window, so I guess I just have to roll with it, right?
With a ‘tude and no fucks to give, Paloma talks about sexy men, men who are too scared to use their fretboard, and other important things like social media, expectations as women grow up, and body positivity.
So stay tuned for the second episode this Sunday the 30th. You’re in for a real treat!
Devon Moore sings and plays ukulele for Fun While You Wait, a three-piece out of New Jersey. In our premiere episode, we nerd out about ukuleles, gush excessively about Devon’s song picks, and discuss earthquakes and the New Jersey music community.
Sorry about the radio silence as I scramble to get the podcast together. I’ve had a couple of personal upheavals to deal with, which resulted in me investing a bit more money into the launch than I had expected.
But I do have some great news! The episodes are coming together with the help of the lovelies Lety Beers and Greg Guiliano. Lety has experience in music engineering and being all-around awesome, and has agreed to do both for the podcast. After tearing my hair out a few times learning a completely new craft, having her volunteer has been a godsend. She’s also an amazing drummer for San Diego bands The Schizophonics, The Rosalyns–WHO ARE PLAYING AT BURGER-A-GO-GO IN SEPTEMBER WITH KATHLEEN HANNA AND KIM GORDON–and The Little Richards, who, if you haven’t guessed, is a Little Richard cover band.
Under Wait Think Fast Productions, Greg will be putting in his hard-earned cash into audio hosting for Grrl on Grrl. Without him, I would be using some weird free workaround to host things, and well, that would have sucked. Writer, actor, and general funny man, Greg was one of the creators of a strange and hilarious variety show The Telethon, performed on the main stage with the Neo Futurists, and produced and been featured in Blewt! productions.
With Lety and Greg’s help, I’ll have a few loads off my back as I put the finishing touches on the first four episodes… the first coming out… THIS SUNDAY!
Stay tuned for this Sunday, August 16th, for the very first Grrl on Grrl episode. The premier episode will feature Devon Moore of Fun While You Wait, a New Jersey based band. Get ready for ukulele evangelism and music scene talk!
Thank you again for all your support. Stick around!
