Coathangers, Audacity, Tim Larson Early Warnings (Music) Recommended

When: Fri., April 11, 9:30 p.m. 2014
The Coathangers have built a reputation on their live shows: the all-female Atlanta quartet throws down rabid, sugar-high garage punk so furious and frenetic that even the staunchest rock chauvinist will admit they're "pretty good" without adding "for a bunch of girls." Their recent full-length, Scramble (Suicide Squeeze), preserves a fair amount of that onstage crackle in its fun and funny buzz-saw pop—most clearly in "Stop Stomp Stompin'," a rant at a lead-footed upstairs neighbor, and "Getting' Mad and Pumpin' Iron," a revenge fantasy that sounds like both sides of the Bikini Kill/Huggy Bear split playing at the same time. —Miles Raymer, 2009
