Shredding NJ trio Screaming Females, who were recently in NYC for the Don Giovanni showcases, don’t have any plans to return here on their upcoming tour with The Julie Ruin (it does hit NJ’s Asbury Lanes on 4/12 though), but they’ve since announced two intimate NYC appearances to go down this March before then. First they’ll play the birthday surprise party for their friends/labelmates Shellshag at Silent Barn on March 7with Tuff Tits and “Special Guests.” Flyer below.
After that, and this is a weird but awesome pairing, they’ll play a matinee at ABC No Rio on March 22 with sludge metal crew Thou. That’s one day before Thou’s Saint Vitus show (3/23) (tix), and Thou also returns to ABC No Rio in July on their summer tour.
Screaming Females singer Marissa Paternoster plays NYC again the day after the Silent Barn show when her other band Bad Canoes opens for Paint It Black atBrooklyn Night Bazaar (3/8). That show is also opened by the great Hop Along andNight Birds. Totally free.
