The South Bronx Scroggins sisters tore up the ’80s NYC nightclub scene with their minimal funk. In an ideal world, they’d be able to live off royalties, but they put it best with one of their single titles: “Sample Credits Don’t Pay Our Bills.” After reforming in the early 90’s, they’re now on their second reunion and promise some new music to go with it. If you’ve got a yen for Peaches, Le Tigre, or Chicks on Speed, you’ve got no excuse to ignore these legendary ladies. With JG Wilkes, Sal Principato, and Matt Cash.
