Screaming Females may have been more fitting to see in a basement somewhere in New Brunswick, New Jersey, as they’re often associated with punk bands of that area and the DIY shows that gave them their initial rise to popularity. But this indie rock band is sure to put on just as great of a show this Sunday at the Black Cat backstage. Tickets cost $10 and doors open at 9:00 p.m.
Pianos Become the Teeth, shown above, have a name very indicative of their sound. A combination of sparse and calming ambience with the viciousness of the sharpest predator’s teeth. They combine punk with ambience and experimentalism in a way that many of today’s bands can’t compare to in terms of originality or sheer emotion. They’ll be playing at the Rock and Roll Hotel, tickets cost $10, and doors open at 8:00 p.m.
Madball is New York City hardcore at its best. They’ve been around since the late ‘80s and they show no signs of slowing down. But their performance at the Rock and Roll Hotel this Thursday isn’t just a Madball show. Local punks The Mostly Dead will be in attendance, along with Richmond’s Naysayer, and New Jersey’s The Mongoloids. This show is going to be fast and heavy, not for the faint of heart. Tickets cost $13 in advance or $15 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
