"At the time of [our second album's release party] I'm going to be nine months pregnant," explains Southside Desire lead vocalist Marvel Devitt, resting her hands unconsciously on her stomach. "I try and think of it as the newest member of the band. We'll have to train our baby to play tambourine real quick."
Devitt, her husband and songwriting partner Trevor Engelbrektson, drummer Damien Tank, and vocalist Joy Spika are gathered at vocalist Gloria Iacono's Nicollet Island home. The semi-industrial apartment would be an awesome place for her bandmates' kids to play. There are all sorts of fun nooks and curtains to hide behind, and a Milky Way mural begging to be a backdrop for outer space adventures.More »
