Batter Up


Live in Brooklyn long enough and you’ll discover two things: The G train isn’t that bad, and Screaming Females gigs at Music Hall of Williamsburg are the most reliable in town. Tonight, take the former to the latter, and catch them with their Don Giovanni labelmates Waxahatchee. Where the Screamales’ Marissa Paternoster rocks as hard as anyone in town, Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield (once of P.S. Eliot) prefers acoustic to electric (her first release under the name was entirely solo), slaying the audience more with her lyrics than her riffs. Can’t make it tonight? Take the G to the F and see them on Monday at the Bowery Ballroom. With Tenement and Heaven’s Gate.
