"Screaming Females shredding the shit out
of the south street seaport right now"
- Andy Hare

Screaming Females

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and Screaming Females played the free kickoff party for 4Knots Music Festival at South Street Seaport on Saturday (7/9). As usual, Screaming Females shredded during their opening set.

"The opening band was "The Screaming Females" and I gotta say they were fucking excellent. Lead singer Marissa dresses as a neo-goth Emily Strange type, and then proceeds to shred and scream at you. It was amazing. Really amazing. So amazing in fact that I am now having a debate with myself on whether I should put up with the punk crowd at the end of the month and see another Screaming Females show OR go to the TMBG/JoCo show. They're on the same day. WHAT DO I DO?" [the science of discontent]
Catch them for free again at House of Vans on July 29th. All dates (only three in the US) and more pictures from the Seaport, below...

Hate to tell you 1:33 (first one), but word on the street is that she's been "doink"-ing Ted Leo. New indie couple alert...

1:40 you're an idiot.

Yeah, my friends and I saw Ted and Marissa canoodling behind the stage before the show. Definitely looked more flirty than friendly, especially when he kissed her on the head before SF went on.

Good for Ted if that's true. Also, convenient--From the looks of it, doesn't like the Scremales chick doesn't even have to get on her knees lol

Looks like she's already been practicing her knee/suck pose. See: First picture

"So amazing in fact that I am now having a debate with myself on whether I should put up with the punk crowd at the end of the month and see another Screaming Females show.."

Oh man, don't do it. That punk crowd is too unpredictable. Play it safe.

Suck, it Marissa. Suck Ted's microphone-sized cock like the 7.5 inches you want, you dirty bitch...

that's a karen o move in the first pic, just sayin

Umm Marissa is a lesbian...

Someone needs to photoshop that first pic with a big pornstar cock there instead of a microphone.

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2011 2:14 PM

did she sanitize the mic before she stuck it in her mouth?

I hate you people.

Ted and Marissa sitting on BrooklynV
K I S S I N G
First comes punk
Then comes trying to buy a meal
Then comes Ted getting in bed with a major label deal
Biting his tongue
Wearing skinny pants
Doing the corporate hula dance

She's a lesbian and Ted is married.

2:58 FTW

Angelina Jolie was supposedly a lesbian and Brad Pitt was married too but that didn't stop them from getting their hump on. Ted and Marissa are the indie Brangelina. Tedissa.

Watch the B take it deep throat on that mic, well it's got me getting hungry for some ... hummus and pita, of course

What a terrible lead pic of an idiotic move.

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2011 5:32 PM

This band really sucks bad. She is terrible YUK!

Posted by cynthia | July 13, 2011 4:18 AM

Marissa is into girls, Ted is a standup guy happily in love with and devoted to his longtime wife and BrooklynVegan commenters are a bunch of jealous, self-hating losers so they need to anonymously tear apart people they wish they could be.

god the comments here are so awful - sometimes i don't even think it's people who live in nyc/go to nyc shows, just like boil over from 4chan. Considering this is the internet, that would not be surprising.

y'all are so fucking rude.

A lot of you are disrespectful and inappropriate. Putting sexual comments about Marrisa, and putting comments about things that have never been confirmed as the truth just makes you all look like assholes.
Have some respect for others, also none of your comments are relevant to the above article.
The above article happens to be about a show, not how to say degrading things about women or make up things about the personal lives of others.

Posted by Taylor | July 28, 2011 11:36 AM

What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2011 11:52 AM

Yeah, what Taylor said. Stop talking about Ted Leo banging Marissa, or about how you'd like to bang Marissa, or how Marissa prefers seafood to red meat, or how a 3-way with Marissa would be sweet, or ... BRB

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2011 11:52 AM

honestly, objectifying assholes can get out. some of these comments are absolutely DISGUSTING. keep that shit to yourself. you don't know anything about marissa. stop objectifying her, you creepy sexist pricks.
