Mexican garage punk band Le Butcherettes released their newest EP, struggle/STRUGGLE, and their tour in support of the release arrived at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, August 23, 2018. The quartet were joined by local duo, De Lilith, the band comprised of Richie Rose and Bex Sheers.
Le Butcherettes have toured in the past with Faith No More, with Hot Snakes this past May, and currently with the Flaming Lips. It was apparent from their electrifying set that they may not be headlining small spaces, like the Knitting Factory, for much longer. Teri Gender Bender sang and spoke to the crowd in both English and Spanish, switching between her keyboards and electric guitar or at times, playing no instrument at all.
Teri spent the final song of their set, a cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” singing in the middle of the audience. When the show was over nearly an hour later, she greeted fans and posed for pictures for at least for 20 minutes.
If you’re in the New York area and missed last night’s concert, Le Butcherettes will perform in Brooklyn again with Death From Above at Elsewhere on November 23rd.
