FEA – SATURDAY, 5/7 @ 3:00PM
Fea is the continued ferocity of Girl In A Coma’s Phanie Diaz and Jenn Alva, joined by lead vocalist Letty Martinez and guitarist Aaron Magana. Their melodic brand of riot grrrl chicana punk immediately caught the ear of many iconic collaborators, such as Joan Jett who signed them to Blackheart Records. Fea soon joined legendary, hard-rocking Babes In Toyland on their nation-wide reunion tour; Babes drummer Lori Barbero producing their first release, ‘Zine EP,’ which comes out on Blackheart April 22. For their full-length LP landing July 15, subsequent producers have been Laura Jane Grace, fearless leader of prolific punk band Against Me!, and Alice Bag of The Bags, an early innovator of the L.A. punk scene— all of whom perfectly compliment the band’s fierce exploration of societal, cultural and gender-related issues. With all cylinders ablaze, Fea is a truly unique riot grrrl resurgence out of San Antonio, TX.
