About the band

Garage punk or dirty, vintage garage rock, however you call it - five women coming together to play kick-ass music. Sax, guitar, melodica, bass, drums, and a lotta vocal power.

Miss Guilty is based out of Austin, Texas. Amidst their bootlegging, conning, and rabble rousin' these five guilty souls come together to bring you their own brand of good-time music. Chain gang or crooked beat cop, nothin' could slow these ladies down. Their will is as strong and full of grit as the music they live. 

Vangie Gardner — Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Songwriter

Rachel Allred — Vocals, Bass, Songwriter

Beth Lee — Vocals, Lead Guitar, Songwriter

Tara Rix — Saxophone, Melodica, Percussion

Ren Lewis — Drums

Miss Guilty returns to the place where it all started. The half-dozen Guilty gals played Dozen Street on East 12th - a place that always feels like going back home (both for the vibes and the hip hideout decor).
