They opened for Evanescence and rocked the building last night. Lead singer is a cute 18 year old female who used to be an actress. If you like rock music with a female singer, this is the band to check out.

I love their debut record, it's got some great rock tracks on it. I think the band has some nice potential.

The lead singer sometimes reminds me of Cherie Currie with the stockings/garter belt.

I saw Pretty Reckless earlier this year in support of their album's US release. Great songs and she demonstrates a real strength in her lyrics. Hard to believe she's only 18. I look forward to hearing more from them soon.

i figured people would have thought the chick from Gossip Girl a joke. Nicely surprised to hear positive reviews and makes me think this is worth looking into

I saw The Pretty Reckless on Letterman about a year ago. It was a surprise to realize who the singer was (and how much she has grown up).

Yeah, had NO idea she was an actress until I started looking up her information after the concert. For those that have seen her live, what do you think? Saw some crazy things on youtube and wish she got that wild on Tuesday lol. Crazy how young she is and how much headlines she has made for showing her boobs (though it was taped) and dancing with fans on stage. LOVE IT. Music is really good and totally thought of Runaways when I was seeing her. She does have that sound and look. I'm hoping they keep growing and I'm def going to have to see when they come back to So Cali. And it's a def must check out CD.

I bought the album from the UK when I heard their song on the Kick-Ass soundtrack last year. Rocking cd.

So has she pretty well dropped out of acting to take this up full time, then?

She quit acting for the band. Look like she didn't care much for the Letterman gig.

Movie people may also know her as the little girl in Jim Carrey's version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas

I would be pissed off too, if I had to be forced to play with that idiot on the keyboards.

Great band. Nice to see so many people taking them seriously instead of being the typical music snob and writing them off without giving them a chance.

I was all ready to piss all over them, then listened and said "hey this is not half bad"

Guess i learned not to be such a closed minded prat. and i got to discover a cool band (months late)

Pretty sure that's Jenna Haze in the video with her.

I just discovered this band today. The lead singer is now 20 and she was in Spy Kids 2 and The Grinch way back in the day.

I really dig the tunes and it helps that she's smoking hot, too. I like the programming in their songs:

I saw them this past October here in Indy. Not the best show. I don't know what kind of performances they've put on for other cities, but they barely played for an hour, and the sound wasn't very good. She's a good singer, but they either had the band turned up too loud and drowned her out, or she just isn't very powerful live.
