Got a girl crush on: The Shangri-Las

God, I love watching videos of 1960s pop girl groups. Like cat dirt sez, “It’s like a little skit!”.

Don’t assume that because of their innocent voices, carefully coiffed bouffants and conservative fashion that they were nice “Girls next door”. Believe it or not, The Shangri-Las were known for their “tough girl” personas. There were a number of rumors circulating about their wild escapades, including transporting firearms across state lines (…that’s about as racy as it got). Their bad-girl reputation helped cement their popularity and also kept male musicians from getting cheeky with them on tour.

Sounds like The Shangri-Las were some down ass chicks.
