Friday Night Left the Echoplex in Stitches

Friday night was a solid four-band line up at the Echoplex. Opening the night were The Brutalists, a bit of LA Guns with a smidge of Quireboys with some dirty post punk and a dash of ska. Next up were LA natives, Cheap Tissue, who turned up the energy and made the transition to total […]

The Revolution Reunited: Bikini Kill rattle the Hollywood Palladium with pure positivity and love

The day Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court, I did something I hadn’t done in a long time. I blasted Bikini Kill’s “Resist Psychic Death” on repeat to combat the overwhelmingly sharp pain that periodically breaks through the numbing despair of our post-Obama news cycle. Driving down Silver Lake Boulevard screaming at the […]

Feminist Punks OBJECT AS SUBJECT To Perform at Repro Rights Benefit RADICAL ACTS at Zebulon

The last we heard from OBJECT AS SUBJECT, they had just released their very first single. “Weaponry” was a bombastic introduction to the project led by Paris Hurley, which led to the release of a full-length album, PERMISSION, just a few months later. This feminist collective will be performing at RADICAL ACTS: A Party for […]

Premiere: Feminist Fatales Egg Drop Soup Share Video for New Mix of “PMS”

In 1993, Damon Albarn painted a portrait of the United States’ damaged relationship with fame through “Miss America,” off Blur’s second album. Though they were known as an uptempo Britpop band, this track is discordant and slow—and begs to be sneered at. “I don’t mind,” Albarn drones in the chorus, “I love only you.” A […]

EP Premiere: Egg Drop Soup Have Feminism in Their DNA—Catch Their Residency at Bigfoot Lodge East

Punk music is better live and that’s a fact. In that spirit, Grimy Goods favorites, Egg Drop Soup are about to drop a four-track EP recorded live at Golden Beat Recording Studio.

The song debuted on television’s current best place to hear new music: Issa Rae’s HBO show, Insecure. “Boss” comes on the heels of another brand new Little Simz cut called “Offence,” which […]

Premiere: illiterates make thrashin’ call for revolution with new single “My Enemy”

illiterates waste no time thrashing to the point with their new single “My Enemy.” In true punk fashion, the track is hard, fast and loud. It bangs with manic drums, fierce guitar riffs and it gets super weird around the 40-second mark. You may feel a bit disoriented for a few hot seconds, but “My […]

OBJECT AS SUBJECT Doesn’t Need Your Permission But You’ll Want Thiers

Violinist-turned-punk rocker Paris Hurley has a new project called OBJECT AS SUBJECT, and it is sure to shift your perspective. She and her band–Emilia “Pony Sweat” Richeson, Gina Young, Patty Schemel, and Megan Fowler-Hurst–cut through the bullshit by grinding axes and pounding skins, evidenced on their new single,”Weaponry.” Their debut LP, PERMISSION, is due out […]
