When I saw Raconteurs/Dead Weather bass man "Little" Jack Lawrence at the (awesome) Screaming Females/JEFF the Brotherhood/Heavy Cream show the other week, I remember wondering to myself which band he was there to see, and deciding it was probably Screaming Females. Just call it a hunch. Whether I was right or wrong, it would make sense in light of the news today that The Dead Weather are taking Screaming Females with them on the July leg of their U.S. tour (dates after the jump). Someone in the S.F. camp (not a band member) raised the idea of a guitar "shred-off" between Marissa Paternoster and Jack White, which could be fun given that even though Paternoster's probably giving up three feet and 150 pounds to J.W., she'd definitely hold her own, if not take whatever crown they were hanging up from the heavens that night. But wank-fest or no (I'm still gonna lean toward no on that one), it'll be cool to see Screaming Females take on War Memorial. They've certainly got the firepower to fill that kind of space. Check it.
