Drop into the Rock and Roll Hotel (1353 H St. NE, DC) tonight to see Le Butcherettes, opening for Antemasque.
Le Butcherettes are a female punk rock duo, formed by frontwoman Teri Gender Bender (born Teresa Suárez). Hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico, Ms. Gender Bender found a home for her band in Los Angeles–and it’s little wonder once you hear them.
Earlier this year, the band released a new album, Cry Is for the Flies, where Gender Bender sings, sneers and struts in the tradition of some of the glammier punk bands. She plays guitar and synths in addition to singing while bandmate drummer Lia Braswell fills out the sound on drums.
Check out the video for their single, Demon Stuck in Your Eye.
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, formerly of The Mars Volta and now of Antemasque, produced both of the full-length albums from Le Butcherettes to date, and he plays bass for the band as well.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
