Concerts 2010

So as I was scouring my HD I came across some shots from random shows over 2010. Figured it might be fun to share these as well as some excellent fucking music.

Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Andrew Jackson Jihad is a folk punk band usually consisting of the duo Sean Bonnette (guitar & vocals) and Ben Gallaty (upright bass), although occasionally they’re joined by drums or horns. Got to see them at Beat Kitchen last June and it was a fucking blast. A friend of mine had introduced me to their music back in 2008 and I was immediately struck by the sincere, grotesque and occasionally hilarious lyrics. So here are three songs because it was impossible to pick just one.

Screaming Females was another fabulous band I saw in September at Brew Not Bombs III (which is also a very awesome benefit teeming with music and microbrews). From New Brunswick, New Jersey, they’re a bit punk/screamo/guitargasm rolled into one with Marissa Paternoster (guitar & vocals), Jarrett Dougherty (drums), and King Mike (bass). Let’s just say that Marissa is my new rock goddess and leave it at that. *swoons*
