Screaming Females, Upset, The Ghost Ease 

When: Sat., Nov. 16, 8 p.m. 2013
The last time the Know hosted New Brunswick's Screaming Females, the punk-rock trio was touring off their sprawling, guitar-driven opus, Ugly. The intimate venue was as packed to the gills with people as that album was with great songs, and singer/guitarist Marissa Paternoster shredded and howled through a set that was nothing short of mind-blowing. While the band did make it through Portland a few months later opening for Garbage, the road warriors ended up sidelined for the remainder of that tour, as Paternoster suffered through chronic nerve pains in her shoulder. She documented the struggle of being cooped-up through a webcomic, and you could feel the sigh of relief thousands of miles away when the band returned to life earlier this year. On Chalk Tape, the EP follow-up to Ugly, the band experiments with Middle Eastern rhythms and double-tracked vocals, showcasing some excellent range lying in wait behind Paternoster's time-tested axe-wielding.
