ROCK | Screaming Females


This Brunswick, New Jersey, band positively seethes. The burn starts at the front where Marissa Paternoster (who art in heaven) sings with one hell of a powerful voice all the while punching in her searing guitar breaks. Spin Magazine voted her the 77th greatest guitarist of all time in 2012 — she beat out Vernon Reid, by the way. The band gives it all to the point of collapse as the music ebbs and flows with a vintage punk twinge and indie smarts.

Screaming Females plays with Aye Nako, Green Dreams, Cantelope, and Honeytomb on Saturday, May 28, at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $10-$12.;
