Pageants is an indie rock duo formed in 2011 and based in Long Beach, California. Its members consist of Rebecca Coleman (formerly of Avi Buffalo)[1] on vocals and guitar, high school friend Devin O'Brien on guitar, and occasionally Lia Braswell (Therapie's Son) on Drums. "Coleman’s new band employs the shrill harmonies she lent to her former act’s breakthrough debut album last year," while lending itself towards "the lonely guitar jangle of early Liz Phair" rather "than Avi Buffalo's axe heroics."[2] Pageants is currently recording with Bobb Bruno of Best Coast and playing shows in the Los Angeles Area.[3]
