Girl in a Coma: A Trolley Show

Texas band performs 'Smart' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

It seems the world will never fully recover from The Smiths' break-up. And despite how many sacrifices we make to the god of sadness, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever see the words “The Smiths” printed on a Coachella lineup. However, the band’s mopey dreaminess has inspired a bunch of talented bands, and Girl in a Coma ranks pretty high among them. 

In this episode of A Trolley Show, the San Antonio group performs “Alive,” which is poppy enough to evoke songs like “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now” but stronger and with more force. In fact, you might even forget about crying with all the head-nodding you’re about to do.
