If you’ve never seen Screaming Females play live, you should fix that (in fact, they just released a live album, which I guess is the next best thing). The trio transforms from unassuming everymen to banshee-wailing, grinning, grooving rock gods the second they play their first note. And the energy is infectious–bassist “King” Mike barely stops grinning or jumping, and guitarist/vocalist Marissa Paternoster throws her whole body into howling and shredding. Given Paternoster’s audible J. Mascis influence, Screaming Females are a natural choice to open for Dinosaur Jr–and this was not the first time the band had taken on that supporting role. (Not even the first time at that venue.)
