Chastity Belt, Washington’s sensational pop and rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Brighton Music Hall!
Chastity Belt was formed in Walla Walla (Washington) in 2010 and consists of Julia Shapiro (lead vocals and guitar), Lydia Lund (lead guitar), Annie Truscott (bass), and Gretchen Grimm (drums). Their musical style is best described as a blend of rock and roll, indie rock, noise pop (a subgenre of alternative rock - developed in the mid 1980s in the UK and US - that mixes dissonant noise or feedback, or both, with the melodic instrumentation and production elements more often found in pop music, making it more melodic than noise rock), indie pop (a subgenre of alternative/indie rock originating in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and differing from indie rock to the extent that it’s more melodic, less abrasive, and relatively angst free), and pop rock (a genre that originated in the 1950s, influenced by the beat, arrangements, and style of rock and roll but with a greater emphasis on professional songwriting and recording craft). They’re renowned for challenging gender norms and making fun of feminine stereotypes and customs in their lyrics. They’ve had a stellar career with 2 studio albums and their latest one (I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone) comes out in June 2017.
Don’t miss your chance to see the artists who take cues from the riot grrrl scene and from early 90’s guitar based indie rock!
