#42 Strength In Sobriety

When you picture the lifestyle of most rock musicians, images of wild concerts, exuberant groupies, and partying until reaching a loss of consciousness likely come to mind. Widely portrayed in almost every music-themed movie or musician documentary are tales of…

#41 Woodstock

There's this thing that used to happen that doesn't anymore, because the last time they tried to have it, everything turned to complete shit… literally. From simple concepts like love and peace, a music festival was born.  And out of…

#39 The Sweater

I have a sweater that I bought years ago. I got it new, which is a rare thing for me, being the second-hand junkie that I am. I had gone into the store to buy milk, but then I saw…

I've always had a propinquity to the dark side. I can remember at age 9, going to volunteer with my grandma at a little gift shop outside a railroad depot in Calumet, MN. I was in charge of running…

#32 Nursey Mercy

Many of you have asked if the members of Hot Pink Hangover have day jobs, or if music is our full-time gig. This band is a full-time job to be sure, but sadly, it isn't paying enough yet to…

#31 One Reason I Hate Tambourines

Some of you already know this- but Hot Pink Hangover is working on a full-length album! It seems like just yesterday we were playing the Nomad World Pub (RIP) as we celebrated our first born, "Wasted." I remember the panic…
