Marissa Paternoster screaming @ Webster Hall Saturday evening
Screaming Females

The Females pick the strongest parts of indie, alt, punk and classic rock to gracefully create something timeless, singular and powerful. The trio’s vocals, riffs, hooks, baselines and beats are live wires touching raw nerves. But the Females’ biggest draw is Paternoster‘s impressive instrumental dexterity. Her frequent solos and leads are hooky without being showy, using the art of the shred to support the songs rather than distract from them. You can hear shades of Skynyrd, the White Stripes and countless other genre-defining greats — but that’s under Paternoster’s distinctive caterwauling vocals, a sound that’s undeniably aggressive.

The Black Cat is promoting Paternoster as “the new guitar God of the rock scene,” while the Village Voice named the lifelong suburbanite 2009’s Best Shredder in New York City.

Take it from the old guitar God of the rock scene: Last year the Screaming Females were thrilled to learn that J Mascis had placed an order for a disc on their website. A few days later, Mascis offered Screaming Females the opening slot at a Dinosaur Jr show in Brooklyn. [Washington Post]

To quote photographer Paul Birman (kolored) who was seeing the band for the first time at Webster Hall Saturday night (9/25), “screaming females are incredible.” If you went to the show, hopefully you got there early. They were first of three on the bill headlined by Titus Andronicus. Free Energy were 2nd.

Now, after playing that Webster Hall show which came after a giant leg of a tour that included three NYC-area shows including a headlining record release party at Knitting Factory earlier this month (more dates below), it can finally be announced that Screaming Females are the unannounced band playing the BrooklynVegan CMJ showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 21st. So the Thursday night BV show looks like this:

* The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
* The Blow
* Screaming Females
* Yuck
* Young Man

Tickets are still on sale.
