Event Details


Grass Widow (Kill Rock Stars): http://grasswidow.org/
Dating back to the 1500s, the out-of-use term "grass widow" primarily referred to a woman whose spouse or lover was alive but absent—out to sea, off to war. There are no male players in the San Francisco band of that name, and their stellar second album, Past Time, sure isn't longing for any. The three women who make up the band are close-knit, nearing the point of hive mind, all singing on every track, all contributing lyrics, purpose, and above all, melody. And what odd, lovely melodies they are. The band professes love for the multi-part, honey-soaked harmonics of British Invasion bands like the Kinks or the Move. - L Magazine
Fresh off of a tour with The Raincoats / working musically with Portlandia, Grass Widow choses Durham and The Pinhook as a stop for their upcoming tour. 

Flesh Wounds: http://www.facebook.com/fleshwounds
Laura's long-lost punk band Thee Scab Eaters got shelved when its other founding member had kids, so she recruited new guys for a loud rock band. Montgomery only knows chords and shrieks and really likes 1950's R&B, so the band is really chordy and shrieky and likes to play songs from the 1950's. Dan is really good on guitar and has been studying Chuck Berry for years, but his drum playing is the band's ace-in-the hole since it lets Laura and Montgomery sing songs at the same time and pretend to be X. Yes, the band is named after a line from Monty Python. Look for a cassette'n'download release some time around April, the cruelest month.
