Music

JP_RedZone1I’m a percussionist and singer with over 20 years of experience in the former and 9 years of experience in the latter. My current, main projects is the filthy feminist punk rock duo that is Damsel Trash, alongside Meghan Rose. I also play drums for Meg’s solo project, Meghan Rose & the Bones. DT is on Facebook and Bandcamp. Or take a gander at our first music video.

I’ve played with the alt-country group Little Red Wolf since 2008, though we’re currently on hiatus. You can check us out at the following links: Little Red WolfReverb NationFacebookTwitterBandcampCD Baby

I’m also a sometime-camp counselor and instrument instructor for the Madison chapter of Girls Rock Camp, which is an amazing organization with chapters nationwide and I highly encourage you to get involved and/or lend your support.

Past bands have included The Shabelles, Aporia, Forte Diem, Milk, A Catapult Western, TNF, and several cover projects (Le Swimsuit Manslaughter, The Heroins, and Ramona).

I’ve had the pleasure of providing percussion for several community and professional musical productions, including Stage Q’s production of “Batboy,” Mercury Players Theatre’s productions of “Walmartopia” and “Revenge of the Mini-Musicals,” Edgewood College’s production of “Brother Can You Spare A Dime?” and several others.

From time to time I also dust off my DJing skills (variably as DJ Batgirl, DJ Xenophile, and most recently as DJ Millbot), and you can download a couple of my sets via Soundcloud:

And last but never lease, I enjoy the dubious (see: awesome) distinction of sitting in on drums now and again for the industrial act Caustic. Basically, I play live drums over his synths and screaming. Come see us some time.
