Drum Dungeon Bio - CHRISTINA BILLOTTE
Christina Billotte is an American singer, songwriter, drummer and guitarist. She is known for her involvement in the Riot Grrrl scene in Washington DC, as a performer and organizer. She is included in Venus Zine's list The Greatest Female Guitarists of All Time.

Billotte and Melissa Berkoff initially began playing together in a Washington, DC band called Hazmat in 1989, but then joined up with Nikki Chapman and Mary Timony to form Autoclave in 1991. Autoclave became known for their math rock styling and released a single on the Diskord label - a joint effort between Dischord and K Records - before splitting up in 1991.

In early 1991 Billotte, artist Jen Smith, and Erin Smith joined Olympia band Bratmobile when they temporarily relocated to Washington. With Billotte on drums the line-up recorded a cassette tape entitled Bratmobile DC. But, by the summer, the band returned to Olympia, with only Erin Smith remaining from the DC contingent. The Bratmobile girls were zine writers, and it was during this time that Jen Smith & Molly Neuman conceived the riot grrrl publication that gave the movement its name.

In June 1992 Billotte formed the all-female punk trio Slant 6 which released 2 albums on Dischord. The band toured widely, before breaking up in 1995 whilst on tour in England.

In 1997 Dischord released an Autoclave compilation titled Combined.

The same year Billotte formed Quix*o*tic, along with her sister Mira on drums and Brendan Majewski on bass. The band released an album Night for Day on their own Ixor Stix label. Majewski was replaced by Mick Barr and the band released a second album, Mortal Mirror, on Kill Rock Stars in 2001. The band broke up in 2002 with Mira moving to NYC to form White Magic.

In 2002 Billotte joined the Casual Dots, who released a self-titled LP through Kill Rock Stars in 2004.

Billotte has been a resident of Los Angeles, CA, since 2003, where she is currently studying ceramics.
