No Small Children
Three school- teachers walk into a bar, onto the stage, plug in instruments and then melt your face.
No Small Children is an all-girl band, or as they call themselves, a band. They were born on the playground in the spring of 2012. Elementary school-teachers by day, guitarist and singer Lisa Pimentel and drummer Nicola Berlinsky decided to start the band while covering recess duty. Three months later they had an EP, countless shows behind them and an east coast tour booked. By October 2013, bass player and singer Joanie Pimentel had moved to Los Angeles to join the group. With all three teaching at the same school, lunch breaks became band meetings, after-school times became rehearsals and holidays were reserved for touring.
NSC’s animated, edgy and break-neck live show both invites you in and calls you out all while you sing along to the fresh, yet familiar, refrains of their carefully constructed songs. Their glamorous matching dresses and bona fide command of the stage will have you leaving at the end of the night a little hoarse, with a smile, and a warm fuzzy feeling.
In 2017, No Small Children released three new singles - “Radio,” “I Feel Better,” and “I Don’t Believe What You Say.” All singles were produced by the legendary, Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Black Sabbath, Filter, and more). “Radio” has recently been featured on The World Famous KROQ, Los Angeles. Also in 2017, the Drew Barrymore Netflix show, The Santa Clarita Diet featured the song “Big Steps.”
No Small Children was honored to have performed at the Unity Ball in Washington DC immediately following the Women’s March on Washington, January 21st, 2017! The band spoke about this and other topics during their interview on NPR’s Weekend Edition that aired January 1st, 2017.
No Small Children’s remake of the classic Ghostbusters theme song can be heard in the new 2016 Ghostbusters movie. Additionally, RCA Records has officially released the song as a single.
