Screaming Females+Ian Svenonius
This Valentine's Day, buy your boo a cupcake with a side of sweet feedback. Screaming Females, headliners for Cake Shop's celebration of exploding Necco hearts, will punk you. They'll put it in your wounds. They even have a song where "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" are the operative terms, alongside "guitar pedal plugged into your throat," of course. Backed by two dudes with knives and rhythm, Females vocalist/guitarist Marissa Paternoster's solo is as feral as her yawp. Ferocious. Plus: Svenonius! The erstwhile Nation of Ulysses ruler DJs this celebration of love on the battlefield. With White Blue Yellow Clouds and American Tenants.
