Reformed Whores at Minglewood Hall 

Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame met at a party in Brooklyn. When it was discovered that Anderson plays the ukulele and Frame plays the accordion, they decided to form a band. Throw in their background of improv and some vintage dresses, and Reformed Whores was born. They perform Monday at Minglewood Hall.

Described as "If Tenacious D and Dolly Parton got drunk and had a baby," Reformed Whores — the name comes from a roommate's Spotify list — perform such songs as "Girls Poop Too," "Eating Out," and "Douchebag," all with a pleasing country twang.

"Our songs are about relationships, dating boys. We wrote from our hearts," Anderson says. "They're based on our sad, sad lives," Frame adds.

The songs are crude and rude. "Girls Poop Too," for example, includes a break of the girls farting. The video for "Eating Out" involves a stunning array of lesbian food allusions.

Reformed Whores will open for Weird Al in August, but it's Amy Schumer who has given them their ultimate goal. Schumer recently performed at Madison Square Garden. "Millennial women are having their moment," Frame says. "We're trying to put it out there."

The duo says that the material works with all audiences because it's relatable — "even if they don't want admit it," Frame says. "Like my dad and my mom," pipes in Anderson.
