In uncertain political times, punk rock always takes on more relevance, and tonight’s lineup at the latest Riot Grill Fest is loaded with fiercely articulate, female-fronted bands who are ready to fight back against oppression. Le Butcherettes have evolved from a performance art–minded shock-rock duo into a more musically nuanced band, but leader Teri Gender Bender remains more subversive than soothing as she upends social expectations. Formerly L.A.-based duo Girlpool have more of an intimate, personal perspective in their melodic folk-punk reveries, whereas another L.A. duo, Deap Vally, make for a stark contrast with their heavy grunge provocations. Seattle quartet Chastity Belt take their post-punk inspirations into dreamier, more contemplative sonic territory, while L.A. combo The Menstruators mix the occasional Prince cover among their straightforward punk originals.
