Screaming Females
Screaming Females

As soon as the Marissa Paternoster, front woman of Screaming Females, began hollering through the songs from the 2010 LP Castle Talk, the crowd took to moshing near the front of stage. Paternoster rules the stage with utter confidence and energy that seemed to possess the crowd. More than at any point during the night, it felt like a punk show with Screaming Females on stage. -[NYPress]
One night after they rocked Purchase, Screaming Females headlined the Don Giovanni showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday 2/12 alongside Laura Stevenson & The Cans, Shellshag, Lemuria, and Byrds of Paradise. The show sold out at the door, and was the 2nd of two Don Giovanni showcases over the weekend. The first was at Death By Audio on Friday night.

If you missed it, you're in luck, as Screaming Females have added another pair of new NYC-area dates. First up, the previously discussed Jeff the Brotherhood show at Santos on 3/31 (tickets still now available) will now be a co-headlining show with Marissa and the gang. In addition, the band has added a show at Maxwell's on 3/30, though not a show of the regular sort:

Something different! For this show artists from the NJ based Doodle Drag Art Collective will be creating unique images for our songs which will be projected behind us while we perform. For the song 'Lights Out' we humbly request YOUR artistic assistance.

We would like YOU to take a listen to "Lights Out" and then visually illustrate the song with your drawings, photos, collage, etc, (but we love drawing.) Be creative! You may illustrate the song however you see fit - create a narrative, create abstractions, or interpret the lyrics literally. Surprise us and most of all have fun with it! We ask that you provide us with a maximum of five drawings.

After submitting the images, they will be compiled into a slide show that will be projected behind Screaming Females during their set at the Maxwell's show, and it will be super cool.

More details on how to contribute to the show can be found at their website, and tickets for the NJ show are on sale.

All dates, and more pictures and some videos from Saturday's Music Hall show are below...

best show ever

Jarrett drinks PBR like a real punk! Even though he only plays at nice shiny venues. No more of those crappy hellholes (besides his basement that he swears his parents don't pay the rent for!).

I love this band so much. Their show opening for Yo La Tengo at Brooklyn Bowl was one of the best gigs I saw all last year.

We're still conducting our first ever BrooklynVegan shlong size survey. Currently, the average holds at 8.255". Feel free to contribute.

Can someone tell me the appeal of this band? Any similar bands they sound like?

Yeah, this comment pretty much sums up everything that is so pathetic about the brooklyn music scene.

What makes you think this person is from Brooklyn? Because they commented on BV? The internet is actually world-wide in case you haven't heard.
Oh... and the band is from New Jersey.

^ Yeah, god forbid 12:34 don't jump to conclusions.

I even asked "Any similar bands they sound like?", meaning I'm still willing to give them a shot.

listening to them would be a good place to start:

Screaming Females = the most OVERRATED band in NYC.

Lemuria is 10x better

I had a screaming female situation the other night... So I invited this chick I been kicking it with over for dinner. I set the table all nice, had some candles burning and the Pinot Noir sitting nearby. However, all my work was in vein because when she came by and saw I prepared a pasta dish and there was no hummus around, that Female was Screaming!
