The Pinch, Cadette, Hot Rash

5 Feb

“Punk Rock Girls” was the watchword at the Amsterdam Bar & Hall last night as a trio of (relatively new) female-fronted bands brought out some sweet sounds for a good time downtown. Opening the night were the Hot Rash, either brilliantly or terribly named depending on your tolerance for some scuzzy innuendo. We’ll go for brilliant right now, with their throwback sound full of sweet, strong power chord simplicity such that they may have been Jane Queer singing about “Punk Rock Guys”. The heavier Cadette followed, with a 10-piece two-tone red-and-black drumkit that was put well to work with a pounding grind to fill the room and spur on pair of hard dancing fans up front.

Closing up the night was new quartet The Pinch, who had a fun interview posted over at the Local Current blog in the run-up to the show. The live experience brought by frontwoman Georgia Conley Ramin and keyboardist Sheela Namakkal was evident as they joked back and forth and dealt handily with some over-zealous Winterfest refugees, who, to their credit, were definitely having a good time for themselves. (Choice exchange: “Live it up, motherfuckers!” “I fucked your mother!” Right.) It wouldn’t be punk rock without some drinks and some sexiness, and without some, as The Pinch played it, of the “Boom Boom”.
