The Dames CD Release Party
With The Dames' new album blaring, we can't help wanting to jump around wildly -- we're overcome with girl power, but not in the Spice Girls sense. Tagged "the demon spawn of The Donnas and Black Flag," Phoenix's all-female punk rock trio follows up last year's Sin and Tonic with just as much fast-paced, hard-rocking gusto on an album that's sure to get them even more attention on the local front. Although The Dames' lyrics are almost indecipherable, what we do know is that "Take a Number," the album's title track, tempts the boys to get in line if they want a chance with these three ladies. And track 10, a true anthem to "Boys + Booze," is The Dames' catchiest tune. "All I need tonight are my boys and booze!" the girls chant in unison. Cheers to that.
