I've always been a fan of co-ed bands. From the first time "Gigantic" blasted through my headphones I knew I wanted to marry Kim Deal. In 2005, Blonde Redhead blew my mind as the band we watched while waiting for Primus. And although Matt & Kim are not on constant rotation on my phone, they are certainly not to be missed live.

Yes, I'm aware that Quasi is fronted by a man. I am also aware that Janet Weiss' thrashing is why I listen to "The Rhino." And, yes, the White Stripes...do we really need to argue about what Meg brings to the White Stripes?
