In related news, Screaming Females are releasing a cassette of home recordings this weekend (2/10) and you can stream the whole thing ahead of its release at Pitchfork. It features the track "Green Vapors," which was done with DG labelmates Shellshag.
Laura Stevenson is also releasing a new album, Wheel, on April 23 via Don Giovanni. You can stream the lead track, "Runner," at the bottom of this post.
Meanwhile, if you miss the showcases this week (or just want more), three of the bands playing -- Black Wine, Hilly Eye, and Nuclear Santa Claust -- are teaming up again for a NYC show at Cake Shop on March 23 with Lauren of The Measure. Admission for that one is $8 at the door.
And in even more related news, Miranda Taylor of Black Wine just interviewed Caroline Rue, Hole's first drummer, who played on their 1991 debut, Pretty on the Inside. Here's an excerpt...
The evolution of Hole's sound is, in my opinion, extreme. What do you think contributed to the sound/style changes over the years?And you can read the rest at Miranda's blog.
Well, first off, Courtney and I were the least skilled musicians and needed time to catch up with Jill and Eric. We hung out, listened to records, and they turned me on to the Pixies, which I had only seen the MTV video for "Here Comes Your Man." We became better players, so we were starting to refine our tool to do what we were intending.

DOWNLOAD: Marissa Paternoster - Holy Hell (MP3)
Marissa Paternoster (Screaming Females) @ DBA in Feb. (more by Leia Jospe)
"Holy Hell, the first official Noun release, incorporates keys, organs, and toned-down guitars and drums. The result is clearly different than Screaming Females: it's mellower, more melodic, and whereas the Screaming Females' songwriting process is a three-way discussion, Marissa Paternoster writes all of the songs for Noun.The The 12-track solo album, whose title track you can download above, will be relesaed in June 2010 on Don Giovanni Records who are holding another showcase in NYC. Last time it was one big show at Bowery Ballroom (forgetters and Jeff the Brotherhood were both on the bill). This time they're doing two nights in a row at Mercury Lounge (April 24-25).
Similarly to Screaming Females, Marissa's friends are an important part of Noun. Holy Hell features drum work by Angela Boylan (of Cheeky), Miranda Taylor (Hunchback, Black Wine, Full of Fancy), and Jarrett Dougherty (Screaming Females), plus bass lines by King Mike (Screaming Females). Her Mom designed the artwork, and her friends at New Brunswick label Don Giovanni are releasing the record. "

The Measure, Barrakuda McMurder, Byrds of Paradise, and Modern Hut are also on the bill. Tickets are on sale.
April 25th is headlined by Shellshag and will feature a set by Noun, as well as sets by Full of Fancy, Black Wine, and Pregnant. Tickets are on sale. All dates below...
