Summit Music Hall
July 17, 2015
When Melvins rolled into town in July of 2015, they of course put on a great show. It seemed after that night, however, all anyone could talk about was the opening band and Ipecac labelmates Le Butcherettes. So we find ourselves less than a year later at the Lost Lake Lounge eagerly awaiting the first headlining set by Le Butcherettes in Denver.
Opening act Sugar Candy Mountain from Oakland, CA was experiencing mechanical difficulties getting to the show, but they managed to make it in time for an admirable, albeit abbreviated set before Le Butcherettes hit the stage. Frontwoman Teri Gender-Bender (née Suárez) stomped onto the stage, with an almost primal chant before launching into Burn The Scab.
Approximately 75 minutes later, everyone in attendance would be on the same plane of understanding that what was just witnessed was something very special. Suárez, who is a true force of nature, grabs the audience by their collective throats and refuses to loosen her grip for a second. It's rare to see a live act with this much passion for their art.
Le Butcherettes are an exhilatating live act and one that should be seen by as many, as soon, and as often as possible.
