For Marie Catastrophe, lead singer and guitar player in A Louder Disaster, a career in music wasn’t always a sure thing. She tried being a drummer in grade school, but that wasn’t a fit.
When she was 15, her Gram bought her an acoustic guitar. Since no one in her family was into music, she taught herself to play, but really focused on buying herself a decent computer. McAllen, Texas wasn’t offering a girl with a guitar OR computer the opportunities she wanted, so Marie pawned the computer, bought an electric and amp, packed the acoustic and two pairs of pants and left for Los Angeles. “I knew I’d be a guitar player in LA,” she remembers.
