Screaming Females @ Bowery Ballroom
Screaming Females

Washington Post: You're about to record a new album, so that means you have a whole batch of new songs ready to go. But when you play shows, people like to hear songs they know. So how do you decide to work new stuff into the setlist?

Mike Abbate: We played a show in New Brunswick over the summer and we played only new songs and people were [very upset].

Marissa Paternoster: It didn't go over very well. I thought they might be interested to hear some new stuff. It didn't really work out that way.

So what can we expect from the new material?

Paternoster: It's chillwave. It's witch house.

I think you missed that boat by about six months, unfortunately.

Paternoster: We don't care! We're bringing it back! It's post-witch-house! Dubstep, that's in there, too ... We just want to write some good songs. For riding your bike. For walking your dog. For driving your cool car. For driving your Grandma around to the supermarket. "Hey Grandma, listen to this. This rocks!"

Screaming Females played Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (10/8) with appearances from Hilly Eye, Underground Railroad to Candyland, and Shellshag. The show was one of the first of a larger tour that will stretch into early November, heading as far west as Fargo, ND before looping back to play a doubleheader day/night show at Court Tavern in New Brunswick on 11/6. Most dates are with Underground Railroad to Candyland.

One of those dates goes down at The Fest 10, the mega-Gainesville, FL punk festival going down from 10/28 - 10/30 and featuring more than 200 bands that vary widely in the general "punk" genre (everything from the prefix "pop" to powerviolence). Full lineup is below and though passes are sold out, walk-up tickets for most shows are still available.

More pictures from the NYC show are below.

I had a serious screaming female situation the other day! Let me explain...
My girlfriend was having a dinner party at her house and asked me to come early to help set up the preparations. After a short while, we had the table set, the wine on ice, and the hummus platter set up properly. And soon enough all her friends were there chatting away as they sipped the wine and dipped the pita triangles with gusto. Everything was seemingly going splendid until that neighbors dog burst through the front door and stuck his long snout into the hummus platter. You should have heard these females screaming!

I want to barf when people in an audience whine about a band playing new material. When did indie rock become like arena rock?

Oh, and hummus is dog food, 3:10.

^ wow, who pissed on your cereal this morning 3:15?
pop a mandie and chill out, huh?

I had no cereal, 3:25. I ate bacon and eggs on a tasty sandwich the way real men do.

I hate new material.

I'm sorry I meant new mehtarial.

Well, occasionally I will give a bit of hummus to my dog. I feel the phyto-nutrients are great for his energy and the olive oil gives his coat a rich shine. And Spot loves it just like we do too. On a pita triangle! Is really cute.

Naming your pretend dog "spot" really takes us out of the moment and draws attention to the fictional nature of your fine hummus handiwork.

i liked the new screaming females songs.

Shellshag was great!

I would advise against giving your dog hummus. I gave some to my dog, Murphy, and he had the runs alllll night. The bitch ruined my carpet.

Let's get to the real issue here, my hummus-loving and hummus-hating friends: THIS BAND IS HORRIBLE.

3:15 hummus is why we mediterranean people fuck like crazy and steal all the hot girls from bacon & eggs eaters like you, pink american loser.

Posted by eretz tzion | October 12, 2011 6:29 PM

Marissa, i am crazy about you!

Posted by ME | October 12, 2011 6:31 PM

I thought Mediterranean men fucked goats like crazy and just used their womenz for teh babymakings. That's what a goat told me.

All types of people enjoy hummus. (not just those of mediteranean decent) I have a Chinese friend that makes hummus and dips baby corn in there instead of baby carrots, and also have a black friend that enjoys his hummus with grape soda. So don't make any stereotypes around here buddy. Hummus is an international phenomenon that cannot be stopped.

Ted Leo is hitting that?

This band is pretty terrible but at least she took the time to learn how to play guitar. She can do a lot more than most brooklyn/indie "guitarists."

Why does she always wear that dumb dress?

Why do I always eat hummus? Because it's delicious. That's why.
