L7’s signature sound of a heavy, catchy, mixture of punk, metal, noise and pop helped usher in the era of Grunge. Since their recording career began in 1987, the band has released six studio albums, three live albums, one covers LP, and one greatest hits to date on labels including Epitaph, Sup Pop, Slash, and Warner Brothers.

Founded in Los Angeles in 1985 by Donita Sparks: guitar and vocals, and Suzi Gardner: guitar and vocals, the band features Dee Plakas on drums, and at various times Jennifer Finch, Gail Greenwood, and Janis Tanaka on bass.

While particularly known for their unforgettably raucous live performances, the band also spawned underground and mainstream hits including Shove, Pretend We’re Dead, Shitlist, Andres, Fuel My Fire and more. Their music can be heard in television (ER), video games (Grand Theft Auto, Rock Band 2) and popular films including The Perks Of being a Wallflower, Natural Born Killers and John Water’s classic Serial Mom, in which they also star as fictitious band Camel Lips.

In 1991, the band founded Rock for Choice, a pro-choice organization with the Feminist Majority Foundation producing nationwide benefit concerts featuring the biggest musical acts of the day from Joan Jett to Nirvana.

In 2001 the band went on an “indefinite hiatus”. After 15 years and at the urging of their fans via social media platforms, L7 reunited in 2015 and performed sold out shows around the globe to rave reviews and accolades from a new generation of music fans.

Their triumphant return continues with two new singles Dispatch from Mar-a-Lago and I Came Back to Bitch, released on Don Giovani Records. The latter, released in February of 2018 kicks off a US Tour in April in addition to tours of South America, Mexico, and Europe this summer.

A documentary on the band L7: Pretend We’re Dead was released in 2017 to critical acclaim and demonstrates L7’s contribution and legacy in the pantheon of rock.

    I have been listening to L7’s “Bricks Are Heavy” CD lately just wishing I could go but cash flow issues prevent me. If I win I promise I will be right up front rocking out in front of the awesome Jennifer Finch. Hope I win these tickets.

    I’m hoping to drop the overall vibe a few notches with my devil may care awkwardness and inability to be social without the aid of a bottle of Beams 8 Star and a head full of whip-its.

    Any band who writes a kick ass song about drag car racer Shirley Muldowney is a band that I have got to see.
