Three teachers walk into a bar, onto the stage, plug in instruments and then…melt your face.
No Small Children's remake of the classic Ghostbusters theme song can be heard in the new Ghostbusters movie released on July 15th, 2016! They released their third album, “Hold Tight, I’m Flying”, July 2015. Produced by Lisa Pimentel and mixed by legendary Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Black Sabbath, Filter, etc.), this latest album is heavier and more complex, but just as bold and unapologetic as their first two, “Trophy Wife” and “Dear Youth”; both available on iTunes and CDBaby.
NSC released their fourth music video, Ghostbusters, with footage given to them them by Director Paul Feig. Their other videos include Might Get Up Slow, Drunk Creepy Guy and Big Steps.
NSC’s animated, edgy and break-neck live show both invites you in and calls you out, all while you sing along to the fresh, yet familiar, refrains of their carefully constructed songs. Their glamorous matching dresses and bona fide command of the stage will have you leaving at the end of the night a little hoarse, with a smile, and a warm fuzzy feeling.
“I was struck not only by their musicianship but by how well they engage an audience. Lisa and Joanie are a powerful pair of front women” -Alice Bag Razorcake Mag
No Small Children is an all-girl band, or as they call themselves, a band. They were born on the playground in the spring of 2012. Elementary school-teachers by day, guitarist and singer Lisa Pimentel and drummer Nicola Berlinsky decided to start the band while covering recess duty. Three months later they had an EP, countless shows behind them and an east coast tour booked. By October 2013, bass player and singer Joanie Pimentel had moved to Los Angeles to join the group. With all three teaching at the same school, lunch breaks became band meetings, after-school times became rehearsals and holidays were reserved for touring.
“Relatively new on the L.A. scene, all lady trio No Small Children have been tearing it up, one dive bar at a time” Aileen Frasier, The LA Beat 2015
In 2014, NSC released their LP, “Trophy Wife”, toured both east and west coasts and played three shows at SXSW. In 2015, along with their frequent California shows, they toured Colorado, the Midwest, and East Coast. 2016 brought them back the Southwest and Midwest, and they start their fourth East Coast tour on August 5., 2016.
“It’s not unusual for kids to wear a T-shirt to school with their favorite band on it. But at this school., that T-shirt may also have a picture of their teacher — actually, three of their teachers.” NPR –Secret Lives of Teachers, 2014.
These ladies eat, live and breathe music, and you can feel it in their songs. They create it, perform it, and then pass their love of it onto the next generation of music lovers. Soon to be playing at a big theatre near you…
