Episode 22: If The Virgin Mary Could Do It. A conversation with WASI (We Are She Is).

What happens when you are in high school physics class and a classmate says “Do you play an instrument” and your answer is yes?  Well for Merilou Salazar and Jesse Meehan, our guests on this episode of TFAL, they formed a three power chord knowing garage band called The Midol Poppers. After several iterations and learning more chords, they are now the Riot Pop band WASI. Influenced by The Clash, Matt and Kim, and MIA, WASI (We Are She Is) create an atmosphere of sunny melodies and dance beats with a subversive attitude.
