Frightwig are back! Calling Drinking From Puddles tonight!
Former Drinking From Puddles Live-In-Studio guests Frightwig, have reunited and are apperaing at Slabtown in Portland on Friday June 20th. Founding member Mia (Levin) D'Bruzzi will be calling in to tonight's show from San Francisco to catch us up on the bands goings on and get you all geared up for the show!:


"Anyone interested in doing a genealogical study of the roots of riot grrrl rock must include this tremendously influential San Francisco band. Ferocious, funky feminists, Frightwig's debut LP was a brain-burning chunk of white-hot noise rock, loaded with unsubtle sexual politics ("My Crotch Does Not Say Go") and fueled by punk rock bravado that never let up. Flying in the face of every conventional (i.e., male-defined) attitude of a woman's place in contemporary rock,Frightwig simply got in your face and stayed there...  A lot of feminist-inspired women rock bands of the '90s, like L7Bikini Kill, and Bratmobile, owed a debt of gratitude to this pioneering band."--John Dougan/All Music
