Meet Sandra from Dum Dum Girls and Robin from Redhedpictures


Meet Sandra from Dum Dum Girls and Robin from Redhedpictures

Today I had lunch with Robin Laananen and Sandra Vu. If you get the new GR, you can see Robin's amazing photo of the Dum Dum Girls covering 1-1/3 pages. As for Sandra, she is a Dum Dum Girl, as well as the focal member of SISU! Usually, I like to conduct interviews in person, but Sandra's piece was done via email because Dum Dums were in the middle of a gigantic tour and I couldn't wait for her to get back. A benefit–besides the fact that Sandra gave thoughtful, interesting answers–was that we got to run photos by Robin, who is a kick-ass photographer and tour manager for the likes of The Locust, Warpaint, The XX, Bloody Beatroots, and Broken Social Scene (not to mention Dum Dum Girls). So it was rad to finally meet them. You'd think it would be easy since we all live in L.A., but Robin and Sandra are constantly on the road. Robin takes off for Australia with A-Trak in just a week or so, and Sandra is going to record with Dum Dum Girls in New York next month! But if you want to stalk them when they're in L.A., I know a restaurant where they're total locals…
