SICK OF SARAH began in Minneapolis, MN in April 2005 as an all-female band with catchy hooks, unique lyrics, and thoughtful, well-crafted music. The band displays talent, passion, and an ever-present sense of humor that shapes many of their songs. They combine sympathetic acoustic moments with driving electric rock, often in the same song. With influences ranging from John Fogerty to Joan Jett, Sleater-Kinney to Vanessa Carlton, Sick of Sarah brings an energy and blended alternative pop-rock style that will have you singing along after the first chorus.

Plus THE ACTION DESIGN: To the uninitiated, the Action Design may appear to be just a regular band. But for the growing legions of fans that have heard their music or seen them perform live, the experience is a veritable dance party; an aural assault that attacks at the ears and releases in rhythmic pulses of the body. Rather than travel down the same paths they had already paved in bands like Tsunami Bomb – after all, it would be easy to pick up where their former bands had left off – the Action Design explore new ground. While keeping the energy and spirit of punk rock intact, the guitars are cleaner, the bass lines less frantic, and the drumming more precise. With the addition of keyboards, the result is a much broader and more accessible sound. One thing that fortunately remained unchanged, however, is Whitehurst’s penchant for crafting catchy melodies and memorable lyrics.

With DONORA and more.
