From the NY Press: "As I (quite skillfully) wormed my way through the crowd of a sold-out Music Hall of Williamsburg show, I began to wonder if this was going to be one of those shows where the hungry young opener devours the aging headliner.
Screaming Females' rhythm section, consisting of Jarrett Dougherty and bassist King Mike, laid it down heavy, playing danceable, dare I say funky, garage punk beneath driving octave fuzz riffs. I got to the stage just in time to see the ultra small-framed guitarist/singer Marissa Paternoster, rip a volcanic whammy pedal solo, one of many in an amazing set of what I can only describe as a 21st century freak-out. I almost think it's too easy to compare her at first glance, to other skillful female musicians: Carrie Brownstein and Karen O immediately came to mind, but perhaps is too limiting a statement to make. I heard Hendrix, Prince and, inevitably, some J Mascis in there too. "
