[PUNK] + TUE., JULY 25
There’s an energy to all-female Sharkmuffin that could be partially attributed to its origins on the Jersey Shore. Now based in Brooklyn, the band still retains a “surf” sound, in the spirit of ’60s girl groups like The Shangri-Las, only with heavier guitar riffs and more shameless lyrics, like the energetic and boldly titled “Tampons Are for Sluts.” Joining Sharkmuffin at Mr. Smalls is The Off White, also from New Jersey, which describes its psychedelic punk as having the excitement of fireworks “in your mom’s broken washer machine,” plus the political-minded but hopeful rock of Pittsburgh’s Victory at the Crossroads.
