Patty Schemel, Hole: Google “hot lesbian drummer” and she takes up six pages or so; add the word “mess” in there and it’s even more, especially after last year’s doc Hit So Hard came out.
Hannah Blilie, Gossip: Beth Ditto may get the press, but butchy Blilie — whose face graced the cover of Music for Men — gets a lot of the lesbian adoration. Fact: She has a twin brother, Jordan, who is the lead singer for Past Lives.
Allison Miller, Boom Tic Boom: When Miller’s sophomore studio album, No Morphine, No Lilies, comes out April 16, it’ll be more proof that Miller isn’t just a great drummer, but one of the more impressive jazz artists of our time.
Sandra Alva, Modern Day Escape: The perfectly coiffed and punky drummer is back in the studio in Florida with band mates for their third album, out this summer.
Kelly Harris, Little Victory: This Brooklyn queer punk band broke up in February, so fans have to console themselves with Little Victory’s self-titled 2012 EP, but we have no doubt sexy speedster Harris will be back soon.
Andrea Silver, Young Galaxy: “Superfoods.” That’s what Young Galaxy’s lesbian drummer, Andrea Silver, says when asked why there are so many hot lesbian drummers. (Read a profile on the band from the latest magazine.)
