Your Austin Music Minute maven has made note of this before, but it bears repeating: Audrey Campbell is not to be trifled with.
The Pleasure Venom front woman’s powerful presence on their fantastically frenzied self-titled release pushes all the right buttons in a merciless upheaval. Feast on all those annihilating hooks that match Campbell’s vocals on each blistering round. Not fer nothin’ did Bikini Kill‘s Kathleen Hanna give this band a shoutout. The future is badass female. Deal with it.
The second track on Pleasure Venom’s EP, “Deth” (featured on today’s AMM), is a scorcher and comes with a brand new video. The band premieres it at their show tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River. The bill features sets by Pollen RX, The Oysters, and Houston band Goodgirl, making their Austin debut.
The music starts at 9:30 p.m. Solid all around. Very recommended.
