LIVESound: Screaming Females Debut New Song at Maxwell's

Maxwell's has been a longtime institution in the Jersey scene for over the past three decades, hosting everything from scrappy punk shows to Springsteen videos shoots to Yo La Tengo's annual 8-day Hanukkah residency, but at the end of month, the venerable Hoboken venue will sadly be closing its doors for good. In the time since the news broke, bands from across the indie community have been piling through its doors to step on  music club landmark's small stage one last time, with none representing the importance of doing so more than the bands in the surrounding tri-state area. New Brunswick's Screaming Females are one of those bands, and this past Sunday afternoon, they said goodbye to Maxwell's with a typically rousing set of guitar-slicing rock. NYC-based live video archivist Bleary Eyed Brooklyn was there to make a time capsule of the moment, and along the way, got the chance to watch the punk rippers shred through a new untitled track. Last year's listmaking effort Ugly and this year's Chalk Tape EP have seen the trio step into a bigger, hook-driven direction, and Marissa Paternoster's huge wails seem to be doing just fine here in that light (not to mention, the sound at Maxwell's is made for bands like the Screaming Females. It will surely be missed...)
