Tonight's Setlist: Labor of Love


Here are things Tacocat, Ponytime and Chastity Belt have in common:

  1. Seattle
  2. A certain danceability to their various forms of pop/punk/rock
  3. Members in the "supergroup" band Childbirth. 
Julia Shapiro (guitar, vocals), Bree McKenna (bass, vocals) and Stacy Peck (drums) are clearly having fun, but dead serious about kicking ass, lyrically and musically.

Favorite tracks include "Crossbitch" ("She'll fuck you in the eye with a needle"), "How Do Girls Even Do It?" (addictively riffy riff on how confusing lesbian sex is to the confused) and "I Only Fucked You as a Joke" (self-explanatory). The wonders of Childbirth happen at the Lil' Red, along with Colorado's Lisa Prank, who offers "makeout pop music influenced by heartbreak, stickers, psychedelic kittens, tarot cards, and dolphins leaping over rainbows!"

Rounding out the bill is Eureka's own The Lost Luvs. The show is only $4, 21-and-over and starts at 9 p.m.
