Deb Frazin Photo—Red Aunts

Deb Frazin Photo Column—Red Aunts

This photo of The Red Aunts was shot in 2018 at The Echo in Los Angeles. No one knew it then, but it would be the last time we would ever see the Red Aunts play.

I was so excited about seeing this reunion show. I was a Red Aunts fanatic back in the ’90s, and it had been about twenty years since they last played. I was suffering with a broken rib, but nothing was gonna stop me from seeing this show. I’m so grateful I was able to make it, because sadly, not long after this show/tour, bassist Debi Martini suddenly passed away. A tragic loss.

The band had a great time together on that tour, and after it was finished, they ended up on an extended vacation in Spain doing nothing but eating, drinking, and laughing together. How fortunate it is that they all got to spend that beautiful last time together before Debi left us.

Below, watch them play “I’m Crying” from their last L.A. show.
