Sister Mary Rotten Crotch

 

The last time Sister Mary Rotten Crotch traveled to Lawrence to open for a female-fronted buzz band, it scandalized Le Tigre singer Kathleen Hanna with its robust street punk and raw, less-than-PC lyrical content. This pairing with the Fight should go much more smoothly, because this gruff, England-based pop-punk act is more interested in downing drinks and starting shit than in touting girl power. (In fact, singer K8 once said that “girl singers are pretty much crap.”) Sister Mary’s 2002 release, a split CD with Role Models, paired two new tracks with four reduxes, but its recent set lists tilt the balance toward fresh fury.
