Punk out
Anthony King
Aliza Shapiro and Truth Serum productions break from tradition and have a line up of girls-rule punk rock bands slated for Monday night. The Sydney, Australia band Kiosk headlines with Texas rockers Finally Punk, and local bands the Squids (from Somerville) and Muffstache (from Brookline) will also be performing. Kiosk calls itself a punk band that stands in �opposition to sexism, racism, and homophobia,� but Angie, Jack and Catherine know their true role as �fashion queens and international jetsetters.� They can also kick ass on the stage, with the head banging �We Don�t Want You,� and �Sleeping Alone.� Finally Punk, a flannel loving punk disco band, sports four women rock stars who came together in the Texas desert heat to revive the Seattle grunge scene, and cite Mariah Carey, Sonic Youth, Hello Kitty and girls with neon green armpit hair as their influences. That sounds about right, and isn�t the first time I�ve seen Hello Kitty as a band�s influence. Muffstache (who wants to �make love to your girlfriends�) opens, and the Squids (a nature loving, three girl band) closes. Count yourself in for a night of hard-core punk rock. Tickets $7 for 21+, $10 for 18-20, at 8:30 p.m. PA�s Lounge, 345 Somerville Ave., Union Square, Somerville.
