3/23/2004 - Anne McCue


Anne Mcue's first band, called Vertigo, lasted one hot summer and never got out of the garage. A year later, Anne moved to Melbourne with little more than a $60 guitar she "Borrowed" from her brother, a large blue suitcase and a plan to write a novel. Finding the writer's life a little isolating, she answered an ad in the paper which read: "Wanted: Wild Women for Rock N Roll Band" and joined the pop rock band GIRL MONSTAR as lead guitarist, touring the country and topping the independent charts for weeks at a time. On the side, she studied jazz guitar and began honing her own songwriting style. After four years and two ARIA nominations (Australian Grammies), Anne pursued her solo career. You must come see this great female vocalist and see for yourself. Playing at Café Paradiso with Chris Whitley on Tuesday March 23rd.
