Shellshag+Forgetters+Screaming Females


Over the past couple of years, Don Giovanni Records has released some exceptionally well-received garage and punk records by the bands playing together on tonight’s label showcase. The one thing that unites the headliners is barely controllable guitar playing: Shellshag play wonky, blues riffs to complement their frontman’s quirky thoughts, forgetters play raunchy punk with memorable hooks, and Screaming Females take on stomping anthems bolstered by frontwoman Marissa Paternoster’s soaring solos—the ones that got her voted Best Guitar Shredder by the Voice last year. With JEFF: the Brotherhood, the Measure (SA), Black Wine, and Groucho Marxists.
