In keeping with the themes of International Women’s Day and the general relentless push forward toward crushing the patriarchy (something we welcome here at Showbams), we’re psyched to see The Coathangers in SF this week.
An all-female trio hailing from Atlanta, The Coathangers started as a no-frills garage-punk band, playing house parties here and there. Now a decade later, they’ve made a name for themselves with their jagged guitar hooks and boisterous choruses, reaching new heights thanks to their most recent album Nosebleed Weekend.
Combining elements of post-punk, pop rock and their tried-and-true garage-fun sound, Nosebleed Weekend has been hailed as a breakthrough for the trio, with Paste not only considering it “a triumph,” but also their “strongest top-to-bottom album.”
This Friday, you can catch The Coathangers at Brick & Mortar Music Hall after Girls Tears and The Heartlights open the show. Tickets are available for $15, or you could win a pair of tickets by submitting your full name and email below.
Contest ends this Friday at 3 p.m.
