Founded in 2003, Don Giovanni is 
approaching a full decade of releasing 
the finest punk rock ever to emanate from the basements of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Best known as the home of guitar wiz Marissa Paternoster’s Screaming Females, the label has grown to 
include New York City acts like Waxahatchee (which features P.S. Eliot’s Katie Crutchfield), Hilly Eye (Titus Andronicus’s former guitarist Amy Klein is a member), and anti-folk folk hero Jeffery Lewis, all of whom will play the first day of their sixth annual label showcase. 
Tonight, however, we get the Screaming Females headlining with openers Black Wine, Stormshadow, Home Blitz, and Shellshag, all playing, as the label’s informal slogan goes, “local hits for the 
drunk-and-alone crowd.”
