The four piece psychedelic rock act Fire Bug live and work throughout Los Angeles and is fronted by the charismatic Juliette Tworsey (without compar ision one of the greatest rock'n'roll voices of all time). Originally from Chicago Juliette and Jules Shapiro (guitars) began cutting their musical teeth in and around local venues including The Elbo Room, Subterranean, and The Double Door. They decided to make their way out to Los Angeles to hook up with the incredible talents of L.A. natives drummer Ty Dennis (Doors, The Motel) and bassist Ian Solomon. Since arriving in Los Angeles, Fire Bug has become a part of the essential club scene with performances at Viper Room, The Roxy, Troubadour, The Echo, Spaceland, The King King, Galaxy Concert Theatre, and others. Fire Bug has also made it's way out to NYC with shows at the infamous CBGB'S.
Fire Bug even found a niche playing unplugged sets at alternative L.A. venues like Mr. T's Bowl. That's a 180 degree turn-around from the wall-of-sound generated during the band's more typical appearances, but crossing boundaries is emblematic of Fire Bug. Whatever the venue, you can expect an energetic and charismatic show... Fire Bug also won last years Bandcast 2006 and will play the Canadian Music Trade Fair "New Music West 2007" on May 3 followed by the UK Urban Lawns Festival on May 27.
