Phono del Sol: Chastity Belt are equal parts earnestness and irony

Hailing from Walla Walla Washington, Chastity Belt will be gracing the Phono Del Sol stage on June 15. Featuring Julia Shapiro on guitar and vocals, Lydia Lund on guitar, Annie Truscott on bass, and Gretchen Grimm on drums, the band tackles women’s issues with equal parts earnesness and irony. Some of Chastity Belt’s tracks are explicit feminist anthems like “Cool Slut” off Time to Go Home (2015), but others find their power in the everyday realities and emotions that come along with existing as a woman under the heteropatriarchy. “Caught in a Lie,” a track off their most recent album [...]

Wire performing with Chastity Belt at Slim's

Some shows come around often - others are so rare that they’re practically obligatory - a few of which belong to Wire’s upcoming (and brief) West Coast tour. One of these shows will take place on November 18th at Slim’s in San Francisco, with Chastity Belt (who, by the way, are just as worth seeing as the classic post-punk headliner) opening the night.

This new album is Wire’s first in three years, and received the best reviews [...]
