This is my love letter to all the queer musicians out there, making art and kicking ass. If there's an artist you think I should know about, please let me know, I love new music! (I also reblog/post on general queer and trans stuff, radical news, and instances when the world is fucked, and when it isn't!)

 

So. Shady Hawkins. Owners of the greatest Facebook about me section ever. And as someone who spends a lot of their time perusing queer/feminist/radical band pages on Facebook, I can say this with some authority.
"Militant feminist revengecore." That’s it.
So there’s some of that, but also, some awesome garage punk. There’s distorted surf rock guitar, doo-wop “Woo”s (check out “When Yr Gone”), and lots of ride cymbal and floor tom action. There’s political punk (“Yr Time Is Up,” about the shit justice system, especially around abuse survivors) that could’ve come straight from 1992, but it didn’t because it came from this year and that’s even better. 
For real, Shady Hawkins is catchy, smart, radical (in many senses of the word), and worth your time. They’re from Brooklyn and are playing a couple shows in the immediate future that you should probably go to because I can’t. For those of you not in the area check ‘em out in the following Internet locations:Bandcamp (Featuring new album just released in November, Dead To Me and show information).Facebook
