Spotlight: Le Butcherettes

Garage-punk rockers Le Butcherettes are like the brilliant offspring of surrealist Luis Buñuel and intrepid rock icon PJ Harvey. Led by 25-year-old vocalist/guitarist/pianist Teri Gender Bender (a recent transplant to El Paso, Texas, from Guadalajara, Mexico), Le Butcherettes’ songs and wildly cathartic live shows have often drawn comparisons to Karen O, Patti Smith, Bikini Kill, and other female-fronted rock groups, but there’s a theatricality to Le Butcherettes that brings a further reaching sense of mystery and imagery to the band. Currently on tour supporting the return of Texas post-hardcore band At The Drive In, Le Butcherettes’ electric live show has led to extensive tours with the Flaming Lips, the Mars Volta, Iggy Pop & the Stooges, Faith No More, the Melvins, Jane’s Addiction, Deftones, Queens of the Stone Age, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and, the Dead Weather, and the Melvins, among others. Their debut EP, Kiss & Kill, in 2009 was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Punk Record at Mexico’s Indie-O Awards, while their second full-length Cry Is For the Flies (2014, Ipecac Recordings) won the 2015 award for Best Punk/Garage. Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (At The Drive In, the Mars Volta, Bosnian Rainbows) has produced all three Le Butcherettes full-length albums to date. Their third full-length album, A Raw Youth, was released on Ipecac Recordings in the fall of 2015. The GRAMMY Museum welcomes Le Butcherettes to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on their rising career, hosted by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares. The discussion will be followed by a performance.
