The Sahara Hotnights are a classic example of the best kind of girl band: fast friends who found music another way to play together. “We were just two sisters and friends wanting to do something together,” guitarist Jennie Asplund tells Evelyn McDonnell of Knight Ridder. “We did everything else together. Then we formed a band. We thought it was the funnest way to hang out.” Unfortunately, rock radio has been a tough nut to crack for female bands. “It’s really hard to get in if you have a female singer,” Asplund explained. “It’s hard for them to accept that. That’s a shame.”
