Get Rowdy at the Pinhook: Screaming Females/ the Downtown Boys/ Midnight Plus One
creaming Females had such a clear goal for their new album that it became almost a mantra: they wanted songs that were concise, crisp and melodic. That's exactly what the New Jersey punk trio delivers on Rose Mountain, their sixth LP, due in February on Don Giovanni Records. The album is a milestone in a number of ways. Not only does Rose Mountain reflect a new approach to the band's songwriting, the LP marks the first time Screaming Females have worked with an outside producer, and comes as the trio celebrates 10 years together.
The above teaser is the perfect epitaph for this Durham staple, but we hope it never ever ceases. The Pinhook has a bar with various cocktails and great brews for a killer price, but it's the whacky interior—a giant spider, free-for-all dance poles, glitter, a mural of a panda holding a beer and shooting rainbows from its mouth (yep)—and the hyper-energy events that keep it in our hearts. If it isn't a concert, it's a dance party, and we're just gonna put it out there—the parties are even bigger, better, and wilder than the shows. Grab some dancy friends, a sick pair of kicks, and vogue the night away (with a beer can in hand, of course)!
