Last time New Brunswick trio Screaming Females came to town, there was a little festival going on in Manchester, so we ended up breaking our string of seeing them every time they play here. The Scremales recently released a collection of their past singles — as bands often do to keep fans fed until a new record comes together — but they don’t plan to leave us waiting long for a follow-up to their dense, intense, shred-happy affair Power Move: Their latest, Castle Talk, is due Sept. 14. Meanwhile, the band — featuring a powerhouse rhythm section behind fleet-fingered (and J. Mascis-approved) guitarist/singer Marisa Paternoster — return to Nashville with frequent tour partners JEFF the Brotherhood, who, to give an idea of how their national profile has risen, recently debuted their lightly satanic video for “Mind Ride” on a Village Voice music blog. Welcome back, and welcome home.
See them for free at 6 p.m. at Grimey's, then/or head to Exit/In to catch them with JEFF the Brotherhood and Heavy Cream at rock o'clock. It'll make the hair on your shoulders stand up!
