Bitch and Hellion to perform together at the Whisky a Go Go

Bitch and Hellion at the Whisky a Go Go, October 2, 2014

We are proud to announce that pioneering lady-fronted metal acts Bitch and Hellion are preforming together for the first time ever at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, CA, on October 2, 2014. This is the first show in what will be a month-long tour for Hellion, who are touring the United States to support their newly-released EP Karma's a Bitch. Bitch and Hellion appeared together on the Mystic Records compilation The Sound of Hollywood Girls in 1983, and their respective tracks were released as the now-collectible split single "I'm in Love" b/w "Nighmares" (1983). Despite appearing together on record, the two bands have never performed a show together--until now.

Bitch's new lineup, featuring Angelo Espino (Heretic, Anger As Art, Reverend, Hirax, Once Dead) on bass, Chris Cardenas (Rikki Rockett) on guitar, and Scandall West (Betsy Bitch and the Knockers) on drums, will be performing the show. Scandall West has taken the mantle of musical director and has reinvented the band's sound into an excellent four-way meeting of traditional metal, melodic rock, 70's hard rock, and stoner metal that resurrects rare tracks from the Bitch catalog and magnifys Betsy's personality. It's a show of historic proportions that won't disappoint!

Tickets to the show are available at


Betsy Bitch is Americaís whip-cracking pioneer for women in heavy rock music. She is best known as the lady frontman of the Los Angeles-based heavy metal band Bitch.  Betsy has also worked with veteran Sunset Strip metal band Witch, and used to front the second-wave ska band The Boxboys.

Bitch has the distinction of being the first woman-fronted American metal band to ever be signed to a label, as well as the first band to release an album on the legendary Metal Blade Records.  Bitch would keep a steady profile throughout the eighties in the face of consistent disdain for woman-fronted heavy bands, proving that women can rock just as hard as their male counterparts.

This website is an information resource on Bitch and their pioneering singer, the fabulous Betsy Bitch.  The site features an extremely detailed Bitch Discography that chronicles every album and compilation that Bitch has ever appeared on, as well as a listing of Bitch member appearances on other albums outside of Bitch. Eventually we will publish a full Bitch Biography that will take you through the bandís story; for now we have a sample of what's to come. We also have an obituary page to Robby Settles, co-founder of Bitch, who passed away after a year-long battle with leukemia on May 26, 2010. In the near future, we hope to include more information on The Boxboys as well.
