Pictorial Review: Frankie Rose

Brooklyn’s Frankie Rose is the Kevin Bacon of indie rock. Only with Miss Rose, the degrees of separation are surely less than six. The number of bands with which she’s been associated are many, and include Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls, and a non-girl-named band, Crystal Stilts. She’s performed with legions of others, including Small Black. She has been going it alone for a while, now, and Weeping Elvis fought through weather and traffic to photograph a bit of her recent set at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club opening for White Lies. Pictures: below.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
