Le Butcherettes

At the Drive-In @ 9:30 Club - 3/20/2017

At the Drive-In @ 9:30 Club - 3/20/2017

After being forced to cancel their previous date due to singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala’s vocal issues and a January announcement that the El Paso band would be releasing their first new album in 16 years, in•ter a•li•a,  it was clear that excitement was in the air at the 9:30 Club when they returned for the make up date. Armed with new songs and a whole lot of old favorites from their first three albums, their performance made it clear that even though the band and its fans have aged quite a bit since their last album (2000’s Relationship Of Command), there wouldn’t be any holding back at the sold-out 9:30 Club. A nostalgia act? Not tonight.

Best Of 2011 (so far)

We are now officially half way through the year folks, and it's turning out to be a pretty damn good one for music. Stylistically, the releases this year have been all over the place, but each and every one that we're going to talk about over the next two days are great, if not special in their own right. Don't believe me? check out the list of just the runner ups:


  • Gillian Welch – The Harrow and the Harvest
  • Other Lives - Tamer Animals
  • Peter Bjorn and John - Gimme Some
  • Kurt Vile - Smoke Ring For My Halo
  • Generationals – Actor-Caster
  • Tame Impala – Innerspeaker
  • Cass McCombs – Wit’s End
  • Jill Scott -  The Light of the Sun
  • Cults - Cults 


See what I mean? Impressive right? And some of those won't be staying out of the top 10 before the year is over. So now that you've seen what didn't make it,  let's get on with what did, shall we?

Daily Listen: Le Butcherettes - Dress Off

We're letting loose our best of 2011 (so far) list later on this morning, and this may or may not be a preview of one of finalists. Regardless, this song is one ferocious, frightening assualt of a rock bomb, and for my money, there is no moment finer in the entire Le Butcherettes catalog. So strap in, turn it up and get ready to have your face rocked off. Then run for cover because Le Butcherettes are coming for you and they're coming NOW!

Daily Listen: Le Butcherettes - Kiss and Kill

These guys have got a new album coming out next we so I figured we'd give them a little love. Because I am SO not hip, the first time I heard them was in reports from SXSW this year. Not from actually BEING at SXSW mind you. By listening to REPORTS from SXSW.


Anyways, the reports were true and they are pretty damn excellent. In fact, if there were a genre of music called angrybilingualpunkgrrrrrlrock, then they'd probably be the queens of it. But don't believe me, check out this title track of their 2010 release Kiss and Kill for yourself and remember, Sin Sin Sin is out next week!
