Bettie After Midnight


Heavy, catchy, sexy, punky all-girl rock from NYC


Tough, sexy, and sophisticated, Bettie After Midnight is comprised of three fiery chicks from NYC. Lifelong musicians, Michele (vocals, guitar), Odette (bass, vocals) and Lauren (drums, vocals), create heavy, catchy, punky rock that maintains a no-nonsense edge while showcasing their talent.

In February 2005, Bettie After Midnight started out like a lot of relationships - with an online ad. After hitting it off at a trashy midtown bar, (and getting kicked out before long) the girls scheduled a trial rehearsal. There, they exceeded their own expectations. Within hours, the threesome had written their first song, the gripping ode to self-possession, “Step Aside.”

The ladies of Bettie After Midnight continued to make progress with break-neck speed. In just one month, they had composed seven more original songs and proved their mettle with a debut at the legendary rock club CBGB’s. Soon after, they recorded their very first album, “Exploits of a Girl Gang,” in only one weekend.

With the release of their CD, Bettie After Midnight began garnering impressive live credits. In addition to frequent bookings at well-known tri-state area venues, the band took on unconventional shows. The trio hit the stage in front of fire-breathers and performance artists as part of the popular local series BadAss Burlesque and headlined the 2005 Mondo Porno Party, which was named ‘Best of New York’ by the Village Voice. Having conquered NYC, Bettie After Midnight brought their energetic live show to the ROCKRGRL music conference in Seattle, sharing the bill with iconic artists Patti Smith and Ann Wilson of Heart. Recently, the Betties rocked North Carolina as part of the three-day Heavy Rebel Weekender, an event that drew thousands in attendance each day from all over the country.

This group’s reach goes well beyond the stage. Playboy Radio approached Bettie After Midnight to compose and record the theme song to the popular program, "Night Calls," which can be heard by over 4 million Sirius Satellite Radio subscribers. They are featured in “Scrap City,” a coffee-table book ‘for urban divas and small-town rebels’ published by SoHo Books. Their debut album is now available in record stores from Montreal to Hawaii and can be purchased on iTunes, CDBaby, Tower Records and other popular sites.

The women of Bettie After Midnight have over a year of experience under their belt and show no signs of slowing. With a string of East Coast tour dates in the works and a growing arsenal of new tracks, this band is ready to attack a whole new set of sonic challenges!
