Weaves, Stef Chura (Back Room)

When: Thu., April 19, 8 p.m. 2018

We’ve gotten a lot of great anthems for powerful women in the past few years, from Margaret Glaspy’s “Situation” to Cardi B’s blistering “Bodak Yellow.” Weaves, from Toronto, has yet another with “Scream,” from last year’s excellent Wide Open. Over a tumbling rhythm section, frontwoman Jasmyn Burke offers potent encouragement to stand up and celebrate yourself, to “get up on the table and scream your name,” as she sings in the track’s refrain. Tanya Tagaq, an indigenous throat singer, bolsters the track with guttural howls and growls—wordless articulations of the pains and frustrations of the marginalized. The rest of the record is a polished, punchy collection (see “Slicked” for another ode to self-confidence), but it’s worth the admission price to get the punch of “Scream” delivered to you in person. —Allison Hussey
