After getting the obligatory Alex Chilton tribute out of the way it was our extreme pleasure to spend an hour with Alicia Jo Rabins and Aaron Hartman of JDub recording artists Girls in Trouble

The songs are great, as are Alicia's descriptions of the Old Testament stories from which the songs arise.

Thanks to birthday boy Seth Rogovoy for hanging and helping out and for the pic!
