Central Standard

The Beautiful Bodies Work It

On the second half of this Thursday's Central Standard, meet energetic lead-singer Alicia Solo. Her hip-thrusts and dance moves have sent her home with cuts, bruises and chipped teeth.

She and band mate Thomas Becker share why the Beautiful Bodies are vying to cut a new album with a multi-platinum selling producer.

They're a group full of contradictions. Aggressively self-promotional? Like all unsigned bands. Full of rock stage antics? That's the best part. Dedicated to several local charities? Why, yes. In possession of a guitarist who's a Harvard law grad that represents victims of a Bolivian massacre? Truth. Destined for rock stardom? Well, that's TBD.

The Bodies have a chance to work on their next album with John Feldman, a producer who's worked with the likes of Panic! at the Disco, The Used, Story of the Year, and the Plain White T's. The Beautiful Bodies hope that a current Kickstarter fundraiser will get them to L.A. to work with this legendary producer.

The Beautiful Bodies play with Company of Thieves at the Beaumont Club at 7pm, March 12th. Learn more here.
