#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…

#30 Video Killed The Radio Star

When we started Hot Pink Hangover back in 2017, you could fit our music video budget into a child-sized piggy bank and have room to spare... but we knew that the best way to entice people to listen to…

#29 That's a Wrap!

I'm not sure if you all realize this- but summer officially ended today. This is a hard pill to swallow because I know what lies ahead for we Mid-Westerners. I want more sweaty patio shows and lazy days at the…

#28 Food for Thought

On my deathbed, if I was given the choice between a last meal or a last song, I'd really grapple with that decision.

I've had the good fortune recently to dine at a few of the Twin Cities'…

#27 A Confession

Some of you have been curious about what I meant when I mentioned that the gigs of a couple weeks ago were a welcome morale boost. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE what I do in Hot Pink Hangover…

#26 Weekend Warrior Recap

It's really easy to remember the bad shit. As a self-proclaimed pessimist of the highest degree, I almost always breeze over anything positive in leu of the dire. But last weekend was quite possibly the most fun I've ever had…

#25 Small-Town Strip-Tease

I, like many people, have struggled with body image. In grade school I was teased relentlessly for my big teeth and the high water pants I was embarrassingly too tall for. In high school when all my friends were at…

#24 Vanna White Gets a Black Eye

Each time we hop into our newly acquired jalopy, Vanna White, for a regional gig, a feeling of excitement and accomplishment comes over us. She's the proof that we're a working band with a tour van!!! Having a handful…

#23 Unplugging

When I was young, my parents were "back to the landers" meaning: they lived a simple life in a log home they built themselves with trees they hewed and fitted. We didn't have running water so we relied on…

#22 Sailboats and Sparrows

Last week, I detailed my dire time at bible camp and this week, I was brought to tears by a local Christian band... I know, what a paradox! 

Danny Rampage and I have a couple of friends who…

#21 Hail Mary

I can remember the day my mom dropped me off at bible camp. I wasn't religious, but I was so excited to spend a week with my friends, surrounded by nature, singing around a campfire, doing arts & crafts, and…

#20 Vanna White


As some of you may have noticed, Hot Pink Hangover has been playing a fair amount of regional gigs this summer. Up until recently, we had no choice but to either take 3 cars (which is incredibly uneconomical) or…
