The Coathangers
Jason Travis

In the sweltering summer of 2009, I got hung up on The Coathangers. The female Atlantan punk band melted my face off—while wearing animal masks—at a gallery following sets by two of my all-time favorite local acts. The Scrams (the original lineup of a now-defunct band) and The Jeebies (thankfully still extant) were terrific, but witnessing The Coathangers?! Fuck. From 2007’s self-titled debut to brand-new outing Suck My Shirt, The Coathangers’ discography is chock-full of blisteringly rad songs. In chronological order, my personal faves are “Don’t Touch My Shit,” “Shake Shake,” “Stop Stomp Stompin,” “Follow Me” and “Springfield Cannonball.” This list doesn’t even broach their extensive 7-inch catalog. All y’all are probably psyched about headlining Georgia boys/self-described “flower punk” band Black Lips, but this gig at Sister (407 Central NW) on Thursday, April 3, is a lesson in not missing opening acts, including local punks Stabbed in Back. This 21-plus recital rips at 9pm, and admission is $17.
