What’s Your Deal, Floozy?

Floozy by Anne Hallet

I’m telling you, people, Floozy is fun. I’ve played a few shows with them here in Abuquerque and never fail to enjoy their energy, their spark. The last show we did together was an all-women Lou Reed tribute—at the end of the evening when every single one of us was playing on stage together, it was just so indescribably enjoyable.

This is a band with spirit. Moxie. This is a band that has claimed to aim to reclaim the word “floozy” and is doing so. I can’t wait to play with them again at the ReLaunch party here at the end of the month.

Carve out some time every week for writing and revising new, original tunes.

1. What’s your act?

Floozy is a time-traveling, fun-making music machine. Our acoustic indie three-piece girl band features guitar, drums, upright bass, yummy harmonies and the occasional spoons, banjo and glockenspiel. Our debut album is called Open Can of Super Days, and we’re at work on a second one.

2. Tell me about your background(s) as an artist(s)/performer(s).

Tanya Nunez (Tommy Rickard, Stu Nevitt) played professionally in Los Angeles for a few years and toured with the formerly local band Fast Heart Mart. Teresa Esguerra (Local Honey) has been writing and performing music for centuries, first in Sacramento, California and now in Albuquerque. Bronson Elliott (Sexy Mother Pluckers) has toured Europe and Japan in her mind.

3. What was the worst gig you ever played? Give me all the juicy bits.

Hmmmm…I think it had to be one at a local club where we were slated to play at about midnight on a school night, so there were about two people there. Something was going on with the monitors that made it sound like a tsumani was rising below the stage to wash us all away. The moody sound guy fixed that, and then we were slapped by a salty wave of Why The Hell Are We Doing This.

4. Who are your favorite performers at the moment?

Wildewood! The Handsome Family! Janelle Monae, MarchFourth, Joy Kills Sorrow.

5. Thanks for playing the Pyragraph fundraiser. What’s the most helpful tip you could share with aspiring performers?

Oh, and check this out. We just got back from South by Southwest in Austin. We ran into Pat Sansone from Wilco. He likes the name of our band.
