Local Heroes: Spare Parts for Broken Hearts


This week we are partnering up with PLAY LIKE A GIRL - a women powered collective that creates a safe place for women to connect, create and prosper - for a SMASHCLUB X PLAG showcase here at Space 15 Twenty that highlights and celebrates some of the raddest female local acts.

Here we chatted with Spare Parts for Broken Hearts about their upcoming performance.

Hi There! Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Sarah Green, I am the singer & multi-instrumentalist in the band, Spare Parts for Broken Hearts

What kind of role has music played in your life? Was this something you always saw yourself doing?

Music has been my favorite constant in my life, it’s the thing i've always loved more than any other thing in my life. Yes, I’ve always needed to capture and express the process of knowing myself. I’ve also always felt a need to connect to others through it.

How did you meet everyone in the band?

The 3 of us have played in a few different line-ups together prior to creating in SP/BH.

What are some of your most memorable experiences performing?

Playing with Melvins and meeting Buzz at Music Tastes Good last summer was pretty magical, Women Fuck Shit Up Fest is always rad because we get to play to a room full of music lovers who love female-fronted music, and the Van’s Warped Tour is always memorable because it’s been a constant part of our journey.

How would you describe your music?

Our music is loud, heavy, and melodically aggressive. It’s The Cranberries vs Deftones.

Dream collab – who would it be?

Everyone I love is dead.

What's currently on rotation for you right now?

Rid of Me- PJ Harvey
Grace- Jeff Buckley
Songs for the Deaf- Queens of the Stone Age

Any advice for young musicians?

Don’t listen to everyone who has something to say to you, play your instrument on your own every day, and be yourself. If you don’t know who you are yet, don’t ask anyone this question.

 Lastly, what do you hope for people to take away from your upcoming set at Space 15 Twenty?

A desire to come to the next show with the person they know will love it.
