Punk music? It’s alive and well and living in the Springs. The band Static People, anchored by Dmitra Smith and Pascal Faivre, was named Best Punk/Post Punk Artist 2013 at the recent Artists in Music Awards. Faivre was at the ceremony, at the Key Club, a Hollywood hot spot. (Apparently, in 2013, hip and punk is not an oxymoron).
“Running mascara and ecstatic screams aside, thank you to everyone who voted for us,” Smith says. The duo next appears March 1, at the Epicurean Connection, with “Acoustic Rants and Teenage Obsessions.” That’s the spirit… About the award itself. Shouldn’t it be a statuette shaped like Joey Ramone or Sid Vicious?
