It’s been five long years since Screaming Females have been to town and, at last, they’re getting their due at the top of the marquee. Over the last decade, the Jersey band has been shredding their way up the ranks to become perhaps the rock underground’s most efficiently stunning power trio. Returning on the fresh wings of a strapping new album (Rose Mountain on Don Giovanni), they’re one of the few bands alive that can make a guitar solo punk. If you’ve never been in the same room with frontwoman Marissa Paternoster, then prepare to be not rocked but changed. With some of the most thrilling guitar work around and a voice that’s a quivering thunderbolt of muscle and nerve, she’s one of the most fortified and complete single bottlings of rock & roll today.
