"Screaming Females shredding the shit out
of the south street seaport right now"
- Andy Hare

Screaming Females

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and Screaming Females played the free kickoff party for 4Knots Music Festival at South Street Seaport on Saturday (7/9). As usual, Screaming Females shredded during their opening set.

"The opening band was "The Screaming Females" and I gotta say they were fucking excellent. Lead singer Marissa dresses as a neo-goth Emily Strange type, and then proceeds to shred and scream at you. It was amazing. Really amazing. So amazing in fact that I am now having a debate with myself on whether I should put up with the punk crowd at the end of the month and see another Screaming Females show OR go to the TMBG/JoCo show. They're on the same day. WHAT DO I DO?" [the science of discontent]

Catch them for free again at House of Vans on July 29th. All dates (only three in the US) and more pictures from the Seaport, below...
