Single Mothers in Chicago in January (more by James Richards IV)
London, Ontario punks Single Mothers released their four-song self titled EP back in 2011 and it's one of those EPs that's just way too short, kills for the entire time, and leaves you begging for a full length album. Well fortunately, we'll be getting that album this year. The band have signed with XL imprint Hot Charity (Willis Earl Beal, Ratking) and the label will release their debut full length at some point in the near future. The album is being produced by Joby J. Ford of The Bronx, whose mix of post-hardcore and rock n' roll isn't too far removed from that of Single Mothers, and it wouldn't be surprising if they've picked up a few tips from The Bronx along the way.
The band are great live too, thrashing around ruthlessly as frontman Andrew Thomson spits wordy, personal lyrics at the crowd. They'll be taking that show on the road again this February and March, and will be coming through Austin for SXSW. The shows they have lined up so far include March 13 at Metal and Lace Lounge, a TBA show on 3/14, the CMW showcase on March 15 at Friends, and the Alternative Press showcase on March 16 at Red 7.
Before that, they'll be at pre-SXSW festival Savannah Stopover in Georgia, and afterwards they'll be at post-SXSW festival Spillover 2013 in Dallas with Parenthetical Girls, Parquet Courts, Today is the Day, Alex Bleeker and the Freaks, Widowspeak, Ducktails, and more. Tickets for Spillover are on sale now. The full lineup is below.
Single Mothers have other upcoming dates also, and all of them are listed below, along with a stream of their EP...

The Coathangers at #HotelVegan during SXSW 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
As discussed on BV, The Coathangers have a new split 7" with Davila 666 and will hit the road for some East Coast dates in late May, but first the quartet will reenact SXSW and play a pair of Austin shows on the same day as part of the Fusebox Festival.
The first show happens earlier in the evening on 4/25 at Long Center for Performing Arts as part of an event entitled Forklift Danceworks: Invasion of the New Grrl Order:
Acclaimed Austin-based choreographer Allison Orr teams up with Emily Marks of Scottish Rite Theatre and over one hundred local girls in a raucous homage to the Riot Grrl movement of the early 1990s. Accompanied by the celebrated female punk rock band The Coathangers (Atlanta), the event serves as the kickoff to this year's festival.The FREE event is still looking for girls ages 6 - 18 to participate. For more information head to their site. Later that night The Coathangers will head to Fusebox Festival Hub (1100 E. 5th Street) for a show that will set you back a measly $5 at the door.
Fusebox Festival runs from April 25th to May 6th, and is "an annual contemporary art and performance festival" that features everything from film to dance to music. Among the included artists are bounce musician Vockah Redu, who will bounce his way into Fusebox Festival Hub on 4/28. $5 gets you in at the door.
