Cardiff noise-punk band Joanna Gruesome are making their way to Rickshaw Stop as they tour in support of their sophomore album Peanut Butter, out now on Slumberland in the U.S. Tony Molina, Hard Left, and King of Cats will support the San Francisco show on November 11.
Joanna Gruesome’s current tour marks the departure of former vocalist Alanna Mcardle, the one who politely asked the rowdy Rickshaw crowd to refrain from moshing during their San Francisco debut last year.
Current additions to the lineup include Kate Stonestreet on “melodic vocals/shouting/screaming” and Roxy Brennan on melodic vocals (i.e., no screaming) and keyboard. Even as the band evolves, Joanna Gruesome continues to strike the perfect balance between melodic hooks and cathartic noise. The addition of local legend Tony Molina plus Hard Left and King of Cats means this show is definitely one to add to the list.
