You saw the two freaky white chicks with crazy hair and heard their sexy fusion of electro-punk rock and hip-hop Tuesday night at Funky Buddha. Here's a chance to get to know the lovely ladies of Scream Club, Cindy Wonderful and Sarah Adorable.

Nightspots: Where did you two first meet?

Sarah Adorable: We met in a porn store in Olympia. I was working and Cindy came in and applied for a job. [ laughs ]

NS: Did you not get the job, Cindy?

Cindy Wonderful: Well, I didn't get the job, but I met the most awesome lesbian. She was like a piece of art. It was awesome.

NS: Were there immediate sparks between the two of you?

CW: Yep. For sure.

SA: We ended up talking for, like, three hours at the porn store. [ laughs ]

CW: It's true, we traded buttons. I knew she was impressed.

NS: How did you both develop such a unique sound? And I ask because your music can't be neatly fit into any one genre.

SA: Thank you!

CW: I think we both listen to so many different types of music, that a little bit of everything gets thrown into the mix. We love hip-hop. We love pop. We love '80s bands. We love classic rock. We love so much music.

SA: We even love Patty Duke. [ laughs ]

NS: Who are your main influences?

CW: We're influenced by everything. Some of it influences you in different ways. Rap has a really good beat. It helps us be out and visible and say, 'Hey, not all women are stupid or ho's or accessories to rock guys.'

NS: And you've both been able to work with amazing people, like Beth Ditto, Peaches and Rachel Carns. What was that like?

SA: It was awesome. It was a big honor because, first and foremost, we're fans of all those people.

CW: It's kind of like a dream come true, really.

NS: I take it your audience is really diverse. Do you have a lot of crossover from other genres?

CW: It's kind of weird because we're always afraid to play straight rap crowds. They've always been really, really good shows. I feel like we've just been lucky, or they've been wanting something new.

SA: And some of the hip-hop crowds are more willing to just dance immediately.

NS: Which group dances better?

SA: The hip-hop group definitely dances a lot. I'll tell you who doesn't dance: the people in London, for sure. It's very weird. We try our hardest to get everyone to dance.

NS: What's the appeal of playing music?

SA: Everything about it. I love the people we meet. Having fun.

CW: I love traveling.

SA: I love just being creative. I really love every aspect of it. I think it's really liberating to be able to pay your bills doing something you actually enjoy doing.

NS: Because of your diverse sound, do you think you are able to speak to a much wider audience about issues like body image and third wave feminism?

CW: I hope so. I'm like a chubby, queer andro. And it's just cool that I'm out there and visible. I hope that people will see that and think, 'I can do this, too.'

NS: What do you hope people are taking away from your music other than being able to dance their asses off?

SA: I hope that our music has a lasting, positive message for people; that people really can do whatever they want; that people can love and respect themselves; that girls are awesome and queers are awesome. I want our music to be really positive, really accessible.

CW: I want people to know that they can do anything. If someone sees it, they can imagine themselves doing it. That's what I hope.

SA: If we can do it, anybody can do it.
