Girl germs: In 3rd grade, good lord did we fear them. In 2015? Still pretty scary in the context of romantically approaching women, but just plain fun through the prism Girl Germs, the recurring tribute show celebrating women in music.
Yet again featuring local rock 'n' rollers covering Y-chromosome-lacking stars, the lineup for the December 5 party at Turf Club is a doozy.
We're talkin' grunge-punk youngsters Bruise Violet taking on Lunachicks; we're talkin' shimmering indie-pop persona Suzie covering Cyndi Lauper; we're talkin' buzzy, buzzy trio Bad Bad Hats re-imagining Sheryl Crow; we're talkin' neo-soul riser Mina Moore tackling Janet Jackson; and we're talkin' ex-Dark Dark Dark leader Nona Marie conjuring Patti Smith.
And hey, while we're talking, let's talk logistics. Tickets to Girl Germs 3.0 ($10-$12) go on sale Friday, October 23, at noon; click here for more info.
