Brooklyn’s She Keeps Bees and Shilpa Ray are stopping by Brick & Mortar tomorrow night as part of a huge North American tour, while Little Sister joins them to celebrate their debut EP release, Split Up. As part of an effort to make a dent in an otherwise male-dominated industry, the bands tout an all-female lineup ranging from local punk (Little Sister) to a moody songstress (She Keeps Bees).
She Keeps Bees will be playing new material from their forthcoming fourth full-length LP, Eight Houses, to be released on Future Gods. Check out the video below for “It Is What It Is” featuring Sharon Van Etten on back-up vocals.
Shilpa Ray decided to flip the inanely controversial question of female contraception use, and point it towards men with the video for “Nocturnal Emissions.” The song will be on their upcoming album, Last Year’s Savage.
Little Sister aren’t strangers to Bay Area shows, and have already played Bottom of the Hill, New Parish, and the Uptown. Self-described as a peculiar combination of “flurries of happy rainbow queerness and Catholic school despair,” you can listen to “Stay Away” off of new EP Split Up below.
