Tragedy @ Red 7 - 5/4/2012
Portland d-beat greats Tragedy go in a slightly different, sludgier direction with Darker Days Ahead, the band's new and semi-suprise Billy Anderson-produced LP out now at your nearest merch table. The band is currently road-testing that material at dates across the US and Austin was the guinea pig on May 4th at Red 7, when Tragedy joined Screaming Females, Impalers, and Criaturas. Pictures from the show adorn this post.
Much like Tragedy, Screaming Females are on a tour of their own that crossed paths with the ex-members of His Hero is Gone. SF guitarist Marissa Paternoster who was recently ranked #77 in SPIN's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". Good for her, go to the shows, like Beauty Ballroom on June 1st, and watch her rip it.
More pictures of the bands from Red 7 below... With the exception of Criaturas - missed while covering over at Mohawk (sorry!).
Screaming Females @ Bar 96 on 3/14 (more by Tim Griffin)
"... by the end of Screaming Females, the stage area was at capacity. The NJ 3-piece band led by pint-sized powerhouse Marissa Paternoster on guitar and vocals had the place rocking out and going nuts. The talent those three posess is truly mind-blowing, especially with a few Lone Stars in your system. I am positive that every single person at Bar 96 Wednesday night, if they weren't already, left a Screaming Females fan." [BrooklynVegan]Screaming Females, who were recently in Austin for SXSW, BrooklynVegan showcase at Bar 96 included, will be back in Austin, at the end of a tour, for a show on May 4 at Red 7 where they'll open for Tragedy (!). Criaturas are also on the bill and tickets are still on sale. Tragedy also have shows coming up in NYC and France.
You would think that maybe that show was part of Chaos in Tejas, which Screaming Females are also playing in June, but it's not. Their Chaos show happens June 1st at Beauty Ballroom with the killer lineup of No Age and Ceremony also on the bill. Tickets are still on sale for that too.
In the meantime, Screaming Female's new LP, Ugly is out TODAY (4/3) via Don Giovanni Records. Check out their new single "Expire", with an updated set of tour dates, below.
