Kat Arthur & Her Hellkats, Pearl Harbour, The She Riffs, Alice Bag

Tonight's jam-packed bill features several fiery divas who got their start in the late-'70s West Coast punk scene, but the really exciting thing is that they're coming up with vital new music instead of just coasting on past glories. Kat Arthur is best known as the leader of the hard-rocking soul-punks Legal Weapon, but with the Hellkats she opens up her mighty pipes to belt out the blues with backing by Steve Reed's mighty and muscular bass lines. Pearl Harbour used to tour and collaborate with The Clash, but that was then, and this is definitely now. Backed by an especially tight and powerful band, Ms. Harbour continues to write hard, rootsy new tunes like "Beg for It," where she puts a misbehaving lover in his place with stylishly sassy aplomb. The She Riffs feature former members of such beloved Arizona garage-punk bands as The Peeps and Hell on Heels, and they've recently been collaborating with Bags chanteuse Alice Bag, who actually puts a poppy spin to smart tunes like "Size 16." Plus, Michael Van London & the Big Bad Pony and No Small Children.
