Thelma and the Sleaze, for those not in the know, is an all-female queer southern rock band that’s been around for almost a decade. While singer band center of gravity Lauren “LG” Gilbert doesn’t live in Nashville—she lives in Alabama as you’ll hear here—she long lived in Nashville and the band has deep roots here.
Thelma and the Sleaze has a number of records out, but right now they’re touring around and supporting their album Fuck, Marry, Kill — which I think I refer to in this interview at least once as Fuck, Murder Kill. I accept responsibility for this bad—my bad, I’m sorry, LG—but I to my credit, I don’t know if you’ve ever been in a room with LG but she is an absolute force and it’s hard to not feel / act like an idiot in the presence of this level of stardom. Honest to god, I don’t say so facetiously. It was difficult to keep level headed, she’s so fucking cool. But we made it.
