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