Blessed To Be Messed

By: Laurie Gallardo

This is awesome. Of course, it took a year and a half of demos and testing things out here and there, but so well worth it.

Former Cruiserweight bandmates Stella Maxwell and Dave Hawkins had been toying with the idea of forming a new band since 2018, so with the help of Chris Nine (of the recently retired Karaoke Apocalypse,  and Manhole) and Donnie Adkinson (The Letters Organize, Whores), Stella and the Very Messed emerged with an outstanding garage rock/pop/punk debut at the beginning of the new year, On Fences.

Tomorrow night is your chance to catch Stella and the Very Messed at their album release show at 3Ten, 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. This is a hell of a bill with dreamy dream rockers Moving Panoramas, and garage rock powerhouse outfit Lola Tried. Doors at 7:30 p.m., show at 8:30 p.m. Very recommended.
