Sapphic Musk: “Nordic” Homo Ladies Invade Silver Lake’s Spanish Quarter!


“Nordic” punk metal rockers Sapphic Musk occupied El Cid Restaurant on Saturday night, much to the delight of the crowd (sapphic inclinations or not) who welcomed the invaders with open arms.   Sapphic Musk  is comprised of veteran LA rockers vocalist Sara Truusselson (Sara T. Russel,  Silver and Gold, Sharp Ease), guitarist Miia Ferraarigaard (Mia Ferraro, Silver and Gold, Bobsled), bassist Christie Greinwiod (Christy Greenwood), and drummer Tamz Garmaskagaard (Tammy Germani).  Among those in the crowd who were eye-and-ear witness to the one hour adrenalin-inducing rock occupation were Carole Pope (Rough Trade), Chris Freeman (Pansy Division, GayC/DC) and bandmate Brian Welch (GayC/DC).  Sapphic Musk have promised to “return” to America soon – from the crowd’s reaction this will be a re-occupation they look forward to!

About Judy Ornelas Sisneros

I am a native Californian, born and raised in Bakersfield and eventually escaping to San Jose then San Francisco where I spent every free moment in punk and post-punk culture spaces before heading to LA permanently in 1989. I have also spent major time as an AIDS and queer street activist, which today along with my passion for punk/alternative music still informs my personal and social life. I love photography, film and playing punk/post-punk stuff on the bass. My LA Beat contributions are usually photos that give a glimpse into the vibrant art and music scene that makes Los Angeles such an amazing city to live in today.

      nope, they usually play only 1-2 times a year…they all live in different cities!
