Girl Trouble - Est. 1984

Greetings Earthlings and welcome to our high tech world of the future. We are the low-tech rock and roll band Girl Trouble. Our idea of an adventure in modern technology is to turn on the TV and change the channel to Streets of San Francisco re-runs using a remote control. So why would dorks like us be having one of these web/home page deals? Because somebody told us it was a good idea and we pretty much do anything that somebody tells us. Feel free to enter our world...Thank-you.

"So tiptoe into danger down dark alleyways, seedy waterfronts and a deserted farmhouse and be as quiet as possible, for if Rick isn’t careful, it could be a toe-tag he’s sporting rather than those sleek new shoes he spotted at the beginning of our film..."

20th

ANNIVERSARY
REPORT

Here's just a sample of the excitement that was the big Girl Trouble 20th Anniversary Show at the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle, 2004. Check out the full story and mega photos commemorating Girl Trouble's 20 years in the entertainment industry!
SEE IT ALL HERE!


Freddie and the Dreamers: Anyone connected with this website has followed the entries of "Dreamer of the Month" and instructions on how to do "The Freddie". Girl Trouble salutes one of the most exciting British Invasion Bands ever to grace our shores.
Swedish Dansbands: Formerly located on the second "Don't Touch" button, the information supplied by Karl Zwick and Stefan Ahlstrom (who actually saw some of these bands) was just too cool not to share with the world! See the most fantastic band outfits ever created!
7 Wonders of Tacoma and Beyond: Over the years we've reported on many of the happenings of Tacoma Landmarks. Even though the crappy Tacoma paper changed all the news we were linked to, we will attempt to keep you up-to-date on what's hot and what's not.
Read All About It: Need to read even more about Girl Trouble? Are you kidding? This page will take you to links and/or reviews that you might find entertaining. These links are beyond our control but we'll try to keep them as current as possible.
Psychic Playtime formerly ISAMAR: If you enjoyed the Partial Impact II, The Mutation trailer you are sure to find this page fascinating. Brilliant film maker Isaac Olsen let's you in on his latest projects. He and KP Kendall are working on something special. Keep checking back.
The Freakouts: The only Tacoma band worth linking to (and they are related!) is 14 years old...and we are talking about their individual ages! They change their website more than anyone we've ever seen so check it often and ask for a demo (it rocks!). They broke up and Sam is in the amazing Red Hex.
WOW, THANKS NEKO! Girl Trouble wants to give a big shout-out to our long time, T-town pal (and former GT go-go girl) Neko Case for the awesome comments she made in the recent issue of HARP Magazine (Beck's on the cover). When Neko was asked to name musical acts that influenced her, Girl Trouble made the list of three (including legends Bessie Griffin and Her Gospel Pearls and the Flat Duo Jets). As you may know Neko's career is taking off like a rocket and we couldn't be happier...to ride her coattails to stardom! All kidding aside we are thrilled that everybody is finally figuring out what we knew all along...Neko is one rockin' chick! We recently saw her sold-out show in Seattle and she blew us and everybody away. It was a great night but also made us miss those days of hanging out in Kahuna's basement watching videos and dancing to the "Theme from Shaft". Oh the stories we could tell! To Girl Trouble, Neko will always be part of the family! Check out Neko's website and do yourself a favor and catch her show when she comes to your town.

MY-SPACE FUN!

BON VON WHEELIE'S RINGO STARR CHALLENGE (from March 30, 2009)

Last October I heard a report on a cable news show that made me sit up and take notice.  It was a video of my fave Beatle, Ringo Starr.  Ringo was giving everybody an ultimatum.  He would no longer be signing anything after October 20th.  With “peace and love” he wouldn’t even be reading the letters he’d get after that date!  They would be tossed out.  Whether it was Ringo’s idea of an amusing viral video or a serious warning, I thought I’d better take him at his word.

You see, when I was a teenager I and my friend actually wrote to Ringo.  We had found his address in 16 Magazine and decided to ask him all sorts of important questions.  We even pooled our money to buy a real British return stamp which was suggested by 16 Magazine as a way to get the big stars to write you back.  So we sent our letter off to Liverpool, England and waited and waited and waited... 

Upon seeing this video, my first thought was about our letter, and if I should finally give up hope of getting a response.  I thought I had enough time to dash off a quick follow-up letter before the deadline.  I looked on the internet and found what I thought looked like a legit address in California.  At the same time, I figured "why not include another self-addresses stamped envelope?"  As a final “what the hell” I put in an old Beatle card, one of my fave pix of Ringo, and asked if he’d sign it. 

My letter read...

I was out in the shed getting my drums ready for a show when my folks told me I’d gotten something in the mail.  At that home address I normally only get official government stuff and offers of car insurance, so I hardly gave it a thought.  But Mr. Ed (boyfriend/G.T. assistant) brought out the envelope.  It was my handwriting on the return envelope I'd enclosed.  I opened it up and there was the little cardboard wrapping I’d put around my Ringo Starr Beatle card.  Inside it was...



Th
anks, Ringo! You are still fab!
