Do you remember your first show with a band? How about your last? How does the band remember it? Deap Vally is ending as a group by going out with a bang-up tour.

That tour comes to Denver St. Patrick’s Day. Deap Vally is an LA-based rock duo consisting of Julie Edwards and Lindsey Troy. In celebration of ending the band, they released a double vinyl of their debut album called Sistrionix 2.0.

Sistrionix 2.0

Deap Vally is known for singles including “Royal Jelly” and “Ventilator Blues.”

FEMMUSIC briefly e-mailed Lindsey Troy about the tour:

FEMMUSIC: You released the double vinyl of Sistrionix 2.0 before starting the tour. What was it like to go back and re-record your debut album?

LT: It was a really fun challenge! I wasn’t sure what the process was gonna be like, it seemed like a daunting task, but it ended up being a really enjoyable and cathartic process.

FEMMUSIC: What made you want to disband? What are your plans for the future?

LT: Julie wants to go back to school for forensic psychology, so now I’m left with no choice but to make a solo record! Stay tuned…

FEMMUSIC: What memories stick out the most? What will you miss the most?

LT: Sooo many epic memories. What comes to mind at this moment is opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Budapest and hanging out with them, what a dream! Doing the beautiful cities tour of Europe with Mumford and Sons and playing the most gorgeous theatre with them. Playing in Dublin during a rare heat spell and seeing all the red, sunburnt faces in the audience, and then paddle boarding on a lake in Ireland on our day off. Partying all over the world and playing transcendent shows to sweaty rowdy crowds. Making dear friendships and making so many wonderful memories.   I will miss it so, so much!

FEMMUSIC: How has the perception of “Women In the Music Industry” changed since you’ve been together? What still needs to be done?

LT: It’s changed so much! We came out before the “me too” movement and I think that really has transformed culture. The music industry is much more female-friendly now. There are a lot more women working in the industry and at music venues. I think we dealt with a lot of BS that might not have happened had we come out now.

FEMMUSIC: You’ve been together for over a decade. What advice would you have given yourself when you just started? What has been the hardest lesson to learn?

LT: Hmmm… the advice I would have given to myself would have been to, I dunno, maybe buy a Polaroid camera to document the journey and buy Bitcoin with the small amount of money I made. 😜
