GIRL IN A COMA is a rock band from San Antonio, Texas – land of puffy tacos, Lone Star Beer, and the place where Ozzy peed on the Alamo. All through High School best friends Jenn Alva and Phanie Diaz spent their Friday nights not at the football games, but in Phanie’s bedroom listening to records, singing along to punk songs, and talking of the band they would someday form. Friends since an eighth grade art class where they discovered a mutual love of Nirvana, the Smiths, and skipping out of school, the girls blazed through a couple of band lineups and various sounds. While Nina is often referred to as "the female version of Morrissey," the band as a whole has been compared to The Smiths, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Pixies. Drawing from these influences (the band's name, Girl in a Coma, comes from the classic Smiths song "Girlfriend in a Coma"), the Girls have managed to create a sound and style that not only pays homage to their heroes, but is uniquely their own. In addition to playing hundreds of their own headlining shows, Girl in a Coma has played on Vans Warped Tour and has opened for The Pogues, Frank Black and the Catholics, The Epoxies, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Boz Boorer and The Bozmen, The Smoking Popes, Morrissey and many others.

with MISS DERRINGER and more.
