Teri Gender Bender is over that whole “blood thing.”
“I feel like I already proved a point to myself. I did it too long,” she told us of her faux-gory stage performances.
That’s not to say the tour-de-force behind punk outfit Le Butcherettes is hanging up her trademark blood-spattered apron. It just explains why, mid-song at last night’s Bootleg Theater gig, she took out a pair of scissors and began furiously hacking away at her bangs in time with the drum beat.
Maybe new stage antics and a new haircut are just the right way to celebrate their new album, Sin Sin Sin. Released Tuesday, Sin Sin Sin is only the first LP from the band since they formed in Guadalajara in 2007. Despite this, founding member Gender Bender’s bold lyrics and firecracker performances have earned them a devoted following, as evidenced by the night’s solid turnout.
