TsuShiMaMiRe | ArtsRiot | Music | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice



When: Wed., Oct. 19, 8 p.m. 2016

Imagine that Sleater-Kinney had formed in Tokyo, Japan, instead of Olympia, Wash., and you’ve got TsuShiMaMiRe. The members of the self-described “art-punk girls trio,” Mari, Yayoi and Mizue, have been playing together since their college days in 1999, giving them ample time to zero in on their powerhouse punk and rock-and-roll sound. Like Sleater-Kinney, the guitarist, bassist and drummer avoid straightforward rhythms and melodies, switching things up with pinches of ska, surf, funk, metal, avant-garde and free jazz. The rockers show the Queen City what they’re made of at ArtsRiot as part of their Abandon Human Tour.

Price: $8-10.
