GUEST BLOG: Confessions Of A Lesbian Drummer On Tour

When Infectious Magazine asked me to write a guest blog about being a lesbian drummer on tour, I realized I was a lesbian drummer on tour. I never really thought about my identity in such clear-cut terms, I just kind of…existed. I am Liliana, sometimes Lil or, my personal favorite, Lilisagna. I play drums with too many bands (City In Light, PFL, Hop On Hold Tight) and still decided to join my musical friend, Diana DeMuth, on tour. During shows, my extreme extroversion translates to perpetual pigeon dancing and word-heaving…

Not having a way of transportation leads to relying on others for rides. Wednesday night, my means of transportation relied on my fiancé. We arrived to the The Grove in Los Angeles at 8 p.m., about thirty-minutes before Big Data. We took the elevator seven floors to the main lobby, rushed passed two Italian restaurants, and finally found black curtains guarded with security. We went through the curtains, to find a whole different world of an outdoor stage, white string lights above our heads, and a beautiful stage lit with colorful…

Infectious Magazine has partnered with post-hardcore outfit PushFire to bring you the world premiere of their new track, “Grey,”recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered by Brian Moore at Redbooth Recording Studios.
