No stranger to playing guitar on the actual bar, Adrian and her band will demand your attention and win your heart. Adrian's musical journey renovates some pages of punk, rock, thrash and alternative histories. Some of which are co-written with Kathy Valentine of the Go-Go’s which won Adrian a Best of Austin Music Award in 2011 under the Adrian & the Sickness moniker.

Her 20+ year music career includes fronting the crazy awesome all-female AC/DC tribute Hell's Belles as the Angus Young. Parallel to Hell’s Belles and just as unrelenting, her solo work is consistent and prolific. 2019 Adrian delivered a parody music video of Ozzy Osbourne’s Bark at the Moon. 2020’s Hiss Kiss Hiss & 2018’s SpazKitty EP expands to a new level of producing. Dabbling in mixing electronic music with guitar rock. And since 2016 she’s produced twelve of her own music videos for her various musical projects.

“Exciting, rambunctious and kinda scary”

Or you may find them blowing up the stage at summer rock festivals and biker rallies like Montana’s Rockin’ The River Festival, Austin’s ROT Rally or Kerrville’s Rev Fest.
