Chica Vas, Brooklyn, New York
Chica Vas is the brain child of Siri Wilson and Erin Weckerle. Wouldn't it be grand, they mused, to be in a band with all your friends, especially when those friends are some of Brooklyn's finest lady musicians and artists? What began as a one-off show/fashion extravaganza became a monthly gathering, with each person bringing her own individual musical/vocal/spiritual/percussion talents into the mix. A Chica Vas "rehearsal/show" is more like a ecstatic musical experiment, it's different every time...but always awesome.
