The Red Aunts
The Red Aunts
The Red Aunts were an all-female punk band that formed in 1991 in Long Beach, California when Terri Wahl (aka Angel, or Louise Lee Outlaw) recruited friends Kerry Davis (aka Sapphire, or Taffy Davis) and Debi Martini (aka E.Z. Wider, aka Connie Champagne, or Debi Dip). Wahl would become the guitarist, sharing vocal duties with Davis who also played rhythm guitar and Martini as bassist. Jon Wahl of the band Claw Hammer stood in as drummer under the alias Joan Whale until he was replaced full-time by Leslie Ishino (aka Leslie Noelle , Ishino Destroyer, or Cougar).
Teen Vice
Teen Vice
Teen Vice is a NYC based rock band consisting of Tammy Hart (guitars, vocals), Joshua Ackley (bass, vocals), May Dantas (guitars, vocals) and Derek Pippin (drums).

Tammy Hart’s music career began while still a high school student in South Carolina, when she was signed to Mr. Lady Records, and toured as a supporting act for Le Tigre. At age 18, Hart’s debut album, No Light in August, was written up in the NY Times by Ann Powers as being one of the best albums of 2000. During that time, Hart toured in support of Sleater-Kinney, Indigo Girls, The Butchies and many more.
Hart moved to San Francisco, forming the post punk band GangWay! (featuring members of the band No Age). Following a move to NYC, Hart formed two more bands, Winning Looks whose single was recorded by Kathleen Hanna in her home, and Making Friendz (Last Bummer Records). In 2009, Hart joined the band MEN featuring prominent artist JD Samson to tour in support of their acclaimed debut Talk about Body.

Joshua Ackley’s music career began alongside drummer Derek Pippin as founding member and frontman of iconic punk band The Dead Betties. Following their debut album, ‘Summer of ’93’, released on Donna Dresch’s trailblazing Chainsaw Records, The Dead Betties signed to Warner Music Group. From Warner debut, Nightmare Sequence, the video for single "Hellevator" received rotation on MTV, M2 and VH1. The Dead Betties remained mainstays at venues in New York City, while headlining slots on nation-wide and international tours and festivals earned them a broader audience. Following the release of six albums, The Dead Betties went on an extended hiatus, surfacing to play shows and record on a limited basis.

Ackley has since been villainized by conservative media outlets for his more recent role at a non-profit organization, eventually becoming a target for Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones. In spite of this, Ackley continues to be active in the NYC music scene.
Derek Pippin’s music career began with a move to NYC at age 19 with Ackley, to pursue music. Longtime drummer and writer for The Dead Betties, Pippin has performed as a multi-instrumentalist in multiple bands, including Fur Cups for Teeth, Boogie Brains, Sped, The Kickstarts, The Baddicts, Tight Chocolate, the Buybacks and more. Pippin also ran underground punk venue Divine, in Bushwick, and enjoys a prolific solo recording career.
