You may remember writing a couple months back about Screaming Females, the New Jersey band with the diminutive frontwoman with intense shredding skills. They tore it up at Roboto in January, and they're back this Saturday for a "Gay/Straight Defiance Party" at Belvedere's in Lawrenceville.
The part is the project of Pink Party Productions, a group of queer-identifying women looking to create more social events that are GBLTQ-posi. The Gay-Straight Defiance idea is to have a show that's explicitly geared toward the queer community and those support it. PPP also hosts occasional house shows for traveling bands.
Saturday night's event also features locals The Harlan Twins and Nicole Reynolds, and a dance party featuring DJ's Shorty Rock and Thermos, who hopefully won't be receiving a cease-and-desist letter from the thermal carafe people anytime soon.
The forecast is for torrential good shows in town Saturday night -- the New Pornographers, Forca Macabra, Andrea Parkins -- but if you get a chance, this is one to check out.
