Rich Girls is a jubilant local rock band that sounds a little bit like Everclear or some such fast-rocking Õ90s radio band. Its songs are just as catchy, too.

"... Not Hillbilly Brats"

"Rich Girls: Not Beverly Hills brats, they're Gotham guys with jagged guitars, desperate vocals and shuffling dance beats..."

"Abadfest '08"

"Abadfest '08 was a weekend of disco balls, grocery-store bling, and Bud Lite.
Abadfest '08 was three days of karaoke, beer pong, and Wiffle Ball ª.
Abadfest '08 was also deep in the Green Mountains of Vermont some 222 miles from New York City, and 44 miles from the nearest city (Brattleboro, population 8,160). It was the country. There were bugs..." and then, "Rich Girls are absolutely tearing up the back porch. It's one for the record books, a sight to behold. Front man Matt Basile is strutting, staggering and spitting whip-smart lyrics like "Exile"-era Mick Jagger crossed with "Ziggy"-era David Bowie. Guitarists Sean Kensing and Mike Vitacco are trading licks and lines. Drummer Jamie Alegre is owning his kit like it's Madison Square Garden... The sound is thundering around the surrounding forest and valley. It's truly impressive."

"Loud. And Fast."

"Crisp and energetic, the Rich Girls provide a pulsating show to rival some of the city's best live performers. The New York-based four-piece pride themselves on playing hard, fast and loud but that takes nothing away from a group that also produce buoyant, edgy songs in the mould of their chief influences - The Clash and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. In the shape of Matt Basile, the bands impulsive and charismatic front man, the Rich Girls will continue to thrive in a live environment and look a safe bet to realise their potential sooner rather than late"
