Screaming Females at 92YTribeca in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Ladyfest, which has taken place in various cities over the past few years, is returning to Philly for the first time since 2003 from June 7 - 9 at the Rotunda and other locations in West Philadelphia. The festival's mission statement reads:
Ladyfest Philadelphia is a grassroots event dedicated to the artistic, organizational, and political work of women, trans, genderqueer, intersex, and queer people, and their allies. Ladyfest combats substantive, cultural, and structural inequalities by building upon the existing Philadelphia community of artists, musicians, and activists. It aims to foster a more inclusive and safe environment through performances, workshops, panels, opportunities for collaboration, and more.This year's lineup includes sets from Screaming Females (who play Maxwell's soon), Potty Mouth, US Girls, Aye Nako (who play with Speedy Ortiz soon), Priests, Black Wine (who play Death by Audio soon), Trophy Wife, Kate Ferencz, Mindtroll, Whore Paint, Shady Hawkins, Parasol, Void Vision, and others. Ticket info is TBA but all proceeds will go to Women in Transition and SAFE Home

Jensen with Walls at Acheron, August 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Iron Lung will team with Dreamdecay, Brain Slug and Shoxx as part a rager set for March 30 at Death by Audio. $8 gets you in.
So far additional dates have not been announced, though Jensen of Iron Lung is confirmed to serve as a member of Society Nurse (with members of his other project Walls and others), when the band plays with Vile Gash, Slices and more at Acheron on January 19. Tickets are on sale, or you can buy them with a limited bundle with Catharsis ticket for later that night.
In other news, Shoxx, who you might have seen at 285 Kent over the weekend, play Acheron on January 5 with No Power Swaath and In School. The band's drummer Elsner Nino played with Merchandise on both nights of their 285 Kent shows (New Year's Eve included) as their newly-appointed member.
Head below for new Iron Lung streams, as well as a Society Nurse video.
Vancouver punks White Lung will release Sorry, the band's new LP via Deranged and follow-up to their well-received It's The Evil LP from 2010. Though the record won't see the public eye until May 29th, White Lung is scheduling a few dates on the East Coast in celebration, including a pair of shows in NYC at 538 Johnson on April 20th and Acheron on April 21st. Support at both shows will be stellar, with Brain F≠, Shoxx (mems Pollution, Nomos, Battletorn), Nuclear Spring (mems Natural Law, CREEM, Nomos), and In School heading up the 538 bill while Crazy Spirit, Rational Animals, Deformity, and Putrida join the Acheron bill.
Full tour schedule is below along with a stream of "Take The Mirror", the first song to appear from the new record, and some video....
Don't confuse Balaclavas with another similarly-named band that played our Deathmatch day party in Austin recently. The Houston band with the plural name, who dabble in Birthday-Party like post-punk, are currently on the road after a round of dates surrounding SXSW, and will team with In School (ex-Household), Herzog Rising, and Rutilated Powerhaus (mem of Rosenkopf) to play Death By Audio TONIGHT (3/27). The shows are in support of the band's Second Sight EP, which is streamable in full below.
As discussed, Herzog Rising is also scheduled to play a second show at Death By Audio soon (on April 7th), this time with Kim Phuc, Pop 1280 and Family Curse.
