Tonight's Concert Pick: Screaming Females + Against Me! at The Trocadero - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Screaming Females, the fierce punk trio from New Brunswick, NJ, isn’t interested in breaking gender stereotypes in punk—they want to demolish them. Lead singer Marissa Paternoster, who couldn’t possibly be more than five feet and a few inches tall, packs a wallop in her voice and her guitar that her contemporaries simply can’t match. With a petite stature and a collected, almost demure stage presence, Paternoster led Screaming Females out of the garages and basements of the Jersey underground punk scene to an opening slot on The Dead Weather’s 2009 tour. Bassist “King Mike” Abbate and drummer Jarrett Dougherty round out the trio, and together the three craft some of the most inspired and creative punk music available today. If you don’t catch them at their second tour stop of the summer at the Troc, they’ll also be playing the Crocodile Rock in Allentown on June 4. Screaming Females performs with Against Me! and Lemuria at the Trocadero at 8 p.m.; tickets to the all-ages show are $15. —Danielle Wayda
