Katie – Guitar, Keytar & Vocals

Katie has had a penchant for being a silly idiot on stage since the age of 8, always inventing accents or other SNL-like shenanigans to get a cheap laugh.  After teaching herself guitar while grounded in high school, it was only natural to combine the two.  She began her antics with the Go-Go’s tribute band “Beauty and the Beat” (guitar, backup vocals), has made a guest appearance with “Femmebotz” (keys, guitar) and performs the occasional special event or wedding with “Fair Warning” (guitar, lead and backup vocals). Her favorite venue to play is Slim’s, “because [she] almost ran into that pole and fell off the stage.” Since she wasn’t very cool in the ‘80s, she’s having a blast pretending to be super cool, now,  with the Flock of Seagirls.

Ruba Tuesday – Lead Guitar

Ruba Tuesday was a rebellious teenager.  After being sentenced to an entire summer indoors, she got a part-time job to get out of the house and bought a guitar to keep her sane while she spent time locked away.  A few years later, she joined San Francisco’s infamous, Barbee Killed Kenn, and was featured in numerous festivals, clubs, radio stations, publications, and compilation CDs and earned SF Weekly’s “Best Punk Band” award in 2000.  She joined Rip Off Records recording artists, the Zodiac Killers, in 2003 and recorded two albums, “Society’s Offenders” (2003) and “Radiation Beach” (2005).  They toured Europe together in 2003, 2005, and 2010 and played multiple events across the United States including Blackout Festival (Chicago) and Shakedown Festival (Las Vegas).  “Wantoned”, a song she co-wrote with her self-assembled band, Dead Vanity, was featured on Live 105’s local band spotlight.  Ruba Tuesday had shared the stage with 80’s stars including The Fixx, Dee Dee Ramone, Dramarama, The Rezillos (feat. Jo Callis of the Human League), and many more.  Ruba Tuesday joined Flock of Seagirls in 2013 on lead guitar and continues the legacy of an amazing era of music and entertainment.
