Ethos IFCC

Local label M'lady's Records is celebrating their sixth birthday tonight with this outstanding and eclectic lineup. Olympia's Hysterics play fast and catchy hardcore punk with an in-your-face intensity that is rivaled by few. The four-piece feminist rock group use that force to create a rowdy but safe space for whoever wants a part in it. In a hardcore scene that is often dominated by machismo and violence, Hysterics get loud and make sure that their shows can be enjoyed by anyone. Sharp and powerful lyrics take cues from Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth and the "girls to the front" disposition of the riot grrrl movement. They lash out against a patriarchal hardcore scene, and take aim at the never-ending struggle to achieve glamour within our consumer-driven society. It's a message that still needs to be shouted, and classic DIY punk is the perfect outlet for it. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
