Who is Trixie Trujillo?
Trixie Trujillo is an American skateboarder and the drummer of the skate-rock band 'Bad Shit.' She is the wife of professional skateboarder Tony Trujillo, who is also a 'Bad Shit' member. Trixie began as a skateboarder but later turned toward music. Trixie is also a member of the band 'Trujillo Trio,' which has performed at a number of prestigious music festivals. She is regarded as a celebrity in the San Francisco skateboarding scene.
Trixie has been skateboarding for over a decade now. Initially, it was just a hobby she pursued. Around the same time, Trixie pursued music, too. She first joined the San Jose-based psychobilly band 'The Deadutantes,' as a drummer. Back then, it had become quite difficult for her to attend school and perform for the band, simultaneously. She would go for jam sessions every weekend and that impacted her academic performance. Sadly, the group disbanded by the time Trixie completed school.
Trixie was soon approached by professional skateboarder Tony Trujillo, who urged her to join his upcoming skate-rock band. The band, presently known as 'Bad Shit,' was in the making then. The idea was conceived by Tony and Jake Phelps, legendary skateboarder and the editor-in-chief of the magazine ‘Thrasher.’ Trixie, along with the other two band members, initially practiced in a warehouse located in Hunters Point, San Francisco. It was a double treat for them as the warehouse was also an indoor skate park named 'Double Rock' or 'The Dojo.' Thus, along with jamming, they often practiced skateboarding, too. The band offers a perfect blend of hardcore metal and skateboarding. It has also released a few EPs and has performed at almost all the premier skateboarding events.
Trixie later became part of another rock band, 'Trujillo Trio,' along with Tony and the bassist of the heavy metal band ‘Metallica,’ Robert Trujillo. The band has performed a few times at the 'Orion Music Festival' and on 'The Vans Damage Inc Stage.' They have also released a single titled ‘Trunk Boyz.’
Trixie and Tony later formed their own band named 'Who Axed You?'
