Screaming Females 

When: Fri., May 27, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $8 ADV, $10 DOS
If not for an afterschool music club at a Catholic school in New Jersey, there may not have been Screaming Females. The club fostered super shredder Marissa Paternoster and also introduced her to bassist Michael Abbate. Joined by drummer Jarrett Dougherty, Screaming Females has been playing '90s alt rock peppered with power metal and prog rock guitar work for over ten years. In the vein of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, it’s a deadly combination of boisterous female lead and powerful wall of sound instrumentation. Both Spin and Village Voice have put Paternoster on “best guitarists” lists. Screaming Females continue to tour in support of 2015’s Rose Mountain, which is a response to Paternoster’s continued battle with health problems, a frustrating healthcare system and a lack of answers. Those interested in hearing Paternoster polish off vintage riffs should give “Triumph,” “Criminal Image” or “Ripe” a spin. (Bethany Kaufman)
