When Ava Antonie, Ava Gessner and Lola Flores met at the first annual GirlsRock MKE camp in the summer of 2013, they were three young kids just looking to have fun and make some noise. The girls were 8, 9 and 10-yrs old, respectively, and not once did their age make them think they couldn’t do something big.
From their very first show in a local bar on a school night, six months after becoming friends and bandmates, Negative/Positive has offered beguiling lyrics and three strong role models for wannabe rockers of all ages and genders. Their self-contained battle cry is a string of catchy, indie rock singles featuring Gessner’s nimble vocals and guitar, Flores’ throbbing bass, and Antonie’s big beat.
The girls, students from Milwaukee Public Schools, continue to create their own music without the aid of outside composers or adult assistance. After saving the profits from t-shirt sales over a period of two years, they recorded and released their first album, Lumanescent, in August 2016.
