The Screaming Females hit Asbury Lanes Saturday night on their second to last stop on their current tour. As always the show was an intense experience.
We knew this show was going to be hot when Mike, our South Jersey correspondent who came up for the weekend, noticed a release on the door that mentioned you may be filmed. Then we noticed the super high end video cameras set up as well as a handful of GoPros set up around the stage. Turn out Vice was in town to document the show. This is a band worth documenting.
The New Brunswick band never fails to disappoint. Marissa Paternoster once again transfixed the crowd with her intense guitar shredding and stage presence which finds her more than once thrashing her guitar while laying on the stage. Bassist King Mike exudes a cool ferocity and drummer Jarrett Dougherty plays with an intense energy.
I decided to not bring my camera and just enjoy the show but Mike managed to get some shots with his phone. He also got the great video above. However even this does not convey the magnetism of this band live. You really need to get out to a show. There is really nothing quite like the Screaming Females.
