The Softies
Rose Melberg (Tiger Trap, Go Sailor, Brave Irene) and Jen Sbragia (All Girl Summer Fun Band) just played their first show together in 12 years at chickfactor’s 20th anniversary party in Brooklyn on April 12. Trust me when I say it was rad. They are only planning to do a couple more shows so do not miss! They reformed this year to play at two other chickfactor shows. Here is footage of their Portland show.
