Last night TEENAGE NEWS caught Frightwig at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. It was a perfect show that no true “Punk” shoulda missed. Frightwig are original gangsters, the true pioneers behind the Riot Grrrl Movement. Their debut album “Cat Farm Faboo” gives Punk a knockout punch and establishes Girl-Art.
TEENAGE NEWS doesn’t give half a shit what you think, Frightwig is San Francisco’s most ferocious and talented band. It is time to bow down or die.
Frightwig’s set was too short… They should have headlined the gig; the crowd was left salivating and begging for more. The band is tight and better than ever. Don’t miss them because you need your life changed. They give you salvation, and (most likely) will absolve you of your sins.
Last night, Frightwig played most of their hits, and even if you don’t know their songs their hooks force you to sing along.
Cecilia is the most perfect Amazonian, a Silver Haired Fox that deserves a poster above every teenage boys’ bed. Truly, she is the centerfold that never was. The way she pounds the skins convinces you God is a dame. We had no clue she sang our favorite song, “My Crotch Does Not Say Go.” We also had no clue about her stage presence. Is she “classically trained” in theatre? She must be an actress. She is fluent in sign language, maybe Mandarin too.
Mia absorbs the underground of her being, and shreds her guitar harder than heavy metal and faster than Punk. Holy cow… her guitar makes so many different noises in every song you think she is playing three guitars at once. You can catch her regularly at San Francisco Farmer’s Markets. Don’t miss it! Support “local,” damnit.
Deanna brings the whole show together. She is the glue. Her bass’ vibrations live in your heartbeat, and her voice touches you like the angel you never dreamed of. She also has a sharp wit, and her stage banter will force you to stop head-banging and roll on the floor laughing.
Their most recent member, Eric Feldman, has a very impressive resumé. Currently, he plays keyboards with Frighwig, and slams perfect loops in your face.
Frightwig is intimidating. They use their knowledge from the past to be combative in the future. Frightwig puts you in Space where you are free from Control. Don’t forget: they are San Francisco’s most ferocious and talented band.
