Born and raised on the mean streets of the Mill Creek Valley, in Southeast Ohio, Fairmount Girls, AKA Pillbug started their musical journey as a girl-rock band. They tried some boys out but are now back to all girls.
The Fairmount Girls like animals, playing music and living in the city.
Critical acclaim has led to the band showcasing their music at CMJ, NXNE, Ladyfest Dayton and Columbus, MPMF and countless opening slots including Guided By Voices, White Stripes, Deerhoof, ElfPower, Mates of State, Jonathon Richmond, Scrawl, Mo Tucker, Dressy Bessy, Helium, Forget Cassettes, Milagres and Fruit Bats.
After receiving several offers, Fairmount Girls recently signed to Sprout House Productions, who distributed their first internet release of 2013, 'Attack'.
