LA’s Pinky Pinky may be comprised of all girls — Anastasia Sanchez (vocals/drums), Eva Chambers (bass) and Isabelle Fields (guitar) — but don’t call them a girl band. Call them pure rock and roll, with equal sides of 60s garage rock and California surf pop. That’s exactly what Pinky Pinky served up at a recent Dr. Martens Presents show at the Resident DTLA, alongside opening acts Miserable and Tierra del Fuego. Keep scrolling for a quick Q & A with the band, plus pictures from the night.
What’s unique about playing a show in LA versus other cities?
In LA it’s a familiar crowd, but playing a show in another city can be exciting because you have no idea how the audience will react.
What do you hope people take away from your performances?
We hope they dance and have a good time.
What are you most excited about in your music right now?
We just finished recording our first album — we’re very excited to release it!
Who did you see at your first music concert? Where was it? How old were you?
ISABELLE: I saw the Spice Girls at Staples Center when I was 5 years old. It was super cool.
EVA: I saw Fall Out Boy and Gwen Stefani in Hollywood when I was 7. She played Sweet Escape three times in a row and Andy from FOB gave his drumsticks to me and my sisters.
ANASTASIA: I saw Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi and the Aquabats in LA when I was 6.
What’s your fondest musical memory from the last year?
Playing CalJam, and robbing the trailer.
Tell us about your first pair of Dr. Martens.
ISABELLE: I got my first pair of black Docs when I was in 7th grade. I had always wanted them and it was big moment for me when I did. I still wear them basically every day.
EVA: I got a pair of saddle shoe Docs in Rhode Island for my middle school uniform. My sister stole them from me, though.
ANASTASIA: I got my first pair in 2nd grade from a thrift store. They were metallic silver low tops.
