As a mini-countdown to the All Austin All Handmade Bash Next Friday, July 31, 2009 (see the flyer and get more info here), we’re featuring 2 of the 3 featured musical acts in pop quizzes this week.  Seems DJ Blend*e was a little blog shy, so we hope to get our popolio fingers on her in the not too distant future.  That said, first up we featured hip-hop-popper SALVO on Tuesday (see her pop quiz here) and today we’re featuring experimental soloist Monster Girl from the glam rock The White White Lights.  Check it out and check them both out at The All Austin All Handmade Bash!
