Last Saturday at Maxwell’s, Screaming Females came out in support of their friends. The night was a special one, a party to celebrate the new Shellshag CD and to salute the DIY veterans. The Don Giovanni Records roster seem to all be friends and supporters of each other and this night was solid proof of that. Screaming Females played fourth of five bands, allowing the stars of the night to headline. And the band kept their set relatively short, eight songs in thirty minutes. But that didn’t mean that one of our favorite bands didn’t reach that level of live intensity that makes their performances universally must-see. We are streaming our own personal highlight, a six-minute scorching “High” that closed the set in raging fashion. Screaming Females announced this month that they will be opening the two Thermals shows at Bowery Ballroom on May 28 and May 29. Other tour dates include some northeast shows and a trip down south.
I recorded this set with the large diaphragm Neumann cardioids mixed with an excellent board feed and the sound is superb. Enjoy!
