1. Meet CHILDBIRTH: A Q&A with Seattle’s feminist punk band

    If you’re looking to breakup with someone you don’t really want to talk to ever again, or want to upset your parents, CHILDBIRTH is the band for you. The crass-as-fuck trio hits on themes traditionally abandoned by the punk community, such as menopause and sister wifehood, and they’re performing in Seattle on Monday. 


    I saw CHILDBIRTH during their summer tour at the Third Space Art Collective in Davis, CA, in a venue small enough to see the waxy texture of their t… Read More

  4. Freak Out Over Some Freaky-Ass Costume Makeup


    While the rest of the country seems intent on starting the winter holiday season right after Labor Day, I’m a traditionalist, and prefer to dedicate my September and October entirely to Halloween preparation. So of course I have been completely addicted to Elsa Rhae’s freaking scary videos, where she shows off some unbelievable works of make-up magic.

  5. Thrash Metal Band GWAR Gets Female Frontwoman


    GWAR, the horrific metal band infamous for its blood and guts-stained performances, may have just made metal history. It now has a female frontwoman leading the band: Vulvatron! 


    If you’ve ever seen the band live you have probably been sprayed with fake blood, and if you’re the squeamish type I wouldn’t recommend Googling GWAR. But ever since the beloved leader of the band, Dave Brockie (a… Read More

  6. Here is Your Fall Jacket Weather Playlist!


    So, it’s September. I’ve been in denial of this fact for a few weeks because a) wasn’t it just 90 degrees and humid a week ago here on the east coast? and b) I’m not going back to school so it can’t be fall yet, right? 


    Alas, it is now more than two weeks into September and the official first day of fall is just within reach. I… Read More

  8. Tacocat Builds a Bridge to Hawaii in Their Newest Music Video



    Our favorite psychedelic bubblegum feminist pop punk band out of Seattle, Tacocat, is back with another amazing music video for their new song “Bridge to Hawaii.” You might remember them from their hilarious video for “Crimson Wave” (a pop punk surf rock anthem for periods) that was complete with some bodacious green screen surfing and dancing human crabs.


    "Bridge to Hawaii" is an… Read More
