Finding Your Outfit

Little Hurricane, the San Diego blues duo made up of drummer Celeste "CC" Spina and guitarist Anthony "Tone" Catalano, met through a Craigslist ad only two and a half years ago. Shortly afterwards the duo were voted San Diego's Best New Artist. Since then they've sold their belongings, toured the country, had some luck and hit stages at Lollapalooza and ACL. "Really awesome," they say, "considering no one has heard of us." Rolling Stone got to know Little Hurricane during SXSW, where we hung out with them around Austin before they opened for M. Ward and the Shins on the Auditorium Shores stage.

"I played drums as a kid and wanted to find someone to be in a duo with," says Spina, a former culinary student, of posting the ad that attracted her music partner. The bewitching beauty, who describes herself as "very aware and very paranoid in general," says she got a lot of "creepy responses" and didn't respond to most.
