Marissa Paternoster w/ Screaming Females in LA in October (more by Wei Shi)
Marissa Paternoster

As you may know, Marissa Paternoster of Screaming Females fell ill with mononucleosis in May causing the band to cancel multiple dates, and after returning to the stage, has since had to cancel more dates due to more pain that Marissa has recently been experiencing. She just posted a new update to the band's blog explaining her current situation:

Dear Friends, Here is a very brief run down of where I stand right now as far as my health is concerned. I am doing my very best to get back into tip-top shape as quickly as possible so that we can return to the touring circuit that I already miss so much. Even though I'm not in any shape to get back in the van, we've been writing some new songs and I feel confident that I will be ready to get back on the road sooner rather than later. Thank you for all of the get well wishes and for your patience!

Also, please note that the following is a very cursory overview of what has been going on and I can assure you that a lot more has happened in the past month but it'd simply be too much for me to sketch right now!

That note came with a comic strip that Marissa made about her condition, which you can see below.
