The Divinyls: Painters Mill Star Theater, Baltimore
J.D. Considine, Musician, July 1983
CHRISTINA AMPHLETT looks like Lily Tomlin's Edith Ann doing Patti Smith. She's standing at the microphone at Baltimore's Painters Mill Star Theater, wearing an amazingly ugly purple-and-brown plaid dress with a dirty white Peter Pan collar, exactly the sort of thing most girls throw away upon reaching puberty. It's the kind of dress nobody could look adult in, but Amphlett makes things worse by keeping her mike stand set so high that she almost has to stand on tip-toe to sing.
