If you're planning on going to the Garbage concert at the Palladium Tuesday night, be sure to get there super early to catch opening act Screaming Females.

They shred with precise efficiency under the blinding, siezure-tastic strobes. Ordered chaos with laser sighting concentration.  Screaming Females, the New Jersey trio who has been featured on Spin Magazine and Rolling Stone and currently opening for Garbage on selected dates will bring their  garage-punk wailings to the Palladium Tuesday night, Oct. 2nd,  to  put on a show for the ages.  Tormenting Smashing Pumpkins-esque melodies sewn with sharp, Van Halen-like riffs, pint-sized front-woman Marissa Paternoster screams and thrashes without abandon.  But although it seems like they're raising anarchy onstage it's Screaming Females' sense of control that impresses most, like a well trained knife juggler, you cant' take your eyes off them - sooner or later they may draw blood. 

They recently released their fifth studio album, Ugly, in April.  Be sure to get there early to catch this band. You won't be disappointed.
