'Queens Of Noise' Live And Loud

For fans of crash cymbals, distortion and girls who rock, the Queens Of Noise event live at BackDock Arts was the place to be last Sunday. Run by Anti-Dismal and Reyco Records, it was an outstanding lineup of all of your favourite female-fronted bands including Whoroboros, Sunday Service, ZZADE and Acid Cherry.

Whoroboros opened with bold drums and powerful lyrics that really got the crowd going. They are a riot grrrl band with all queer members. Their badass attitude came through in their songs as the mosh started moving.

It was then Sunday Service’s time to shine. They played a mix of new songs written only the week before, a demonstration of their amazing musicianship and chemistry as a band. Even though their guitarist, Charlie Sloan’s, amp blew during their set, the band pulled through.

ZZADE then took the stage with her gritty and wicked pop hooks. Her latest release 'Hollywood Ending' took the audience by storm. ZZADE isn’t afraid of being herself and telling the whole world about it. Her darkly menacing bass licks filled the Backdock Arts venue with angst and moxie.

It was then time for the last band of the night, Acid Cherry. Their lead singer put on an irresistible show. Their songs about sexism in the music industry, teenage angst and just being pissed off at the world, seemed to strike a chord with the young people watching them.

Reyco Records and Anti-Dismal sure know how to put on a great show, selling out for the Sunday afternoon event, and creating a supportive and lively environment for all.
