Hey, remember back in March when we presented Screaming Females as our On The Cover artist, suggesting you get acquainted — especially with their insanely talented (and young) frontwoman Marissa Paternoster? Well, if you weren’t listening to us back then, maybe you’ll listen to Jack White now.
It’s official as of today (in their words “mega-officially”), Brunswick, NJ’s diy heroes Screaming Females will be the main support on The Dead Weather’s upcoming July tour. We can’t wait to see Jack ask Marissa to join him on stage for a shred-off, only to be left in the dust by the 22-year old. Nah, we kid, we kid. We’re fans of Mr. White too, but seriously excited for the kids in SF to finally be getting some mainstream attention. Oh, and get this — they still book their own shows, and since Power Move was released on Don Giovanni, they’ve toured with Throwing Muses, Dinosaur Jr. and now The Dead Weather. Right on!
Below are the dates, mark your calendars.
