Grim Streaker: July 16, 2017 Out In the Streets Festival, The Well

July 20, 2017

There are many loud, fast, post-punk guitar bands — even ones with female frontpersons and catchy puns for names. But whatever that exact “it” is that makes one stand out, that makes the front rage and the bored people in the back stand up and pay attention, Brooklyn’s Grim Streaker has it. Obviously, the live performance counts for a lot in this genre, and¬†Amelia Bushell anchors that bit of the proceedings, with wry onstage humor and intense, snarling delivery that’s matched by an equally relentless band. The Out In the Streets Festival, in its second year, was our intro to the band, and they flat-out tore it up for a concise 30-minute set that packed in nine songs. The band has a new EP,¬†Girl Minority, on offer, and it’s a commendably strong slab of digital goodness, but the live show is where the money’s at. The band seems to get that, having released the video for “Guts” as a straightforward live production. Have a look below, have a listen to the set, and you’ll see what we mean.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from engineer Cliff Ribiero and Schoeps MK41V hypercardiod microphones. The sound quality is quite good. Enjoy!
