Bassist frontwoman, martial artist, and all-around badass, Sally Rose is a force to be reckoned with. Besides her eponymously named group, The Sally Rose Band, she also is one-fourth of the gutter-glam rock outfit Shagwüf, along with Sweet Pete Stallings, Ivan Christopher Christo, and Pablo Olivieri. With a flair for the dramatic and a killer roundhouse kick, Sally decided to show off her wrestling chops for this month’s shoot. Let’s get ready to rumble!

Shagwüf is hosting two album release parties for ¡Salvaje! — one on November 25 at The Southern in Charlottesville and another on November 26 at Hardywood Park in Richmond. Stream the album today at
