Vixens 

Young and full of venom

Vixens are one of those bands you keep hearing about before you actually get to see them. Their brand of quick, venomous hardcore punk seems to leave people dumbfounded. Josie Stevens, Rosie Davis, Bridget Robins and Julia Tufts first met while attending all-ages shows and bonded over a mutual desire to “sound like a bunch of 15-year-old boys from the ’80s,” says Stephens. However, the most interesting thing about the Vixens is their sense of assurance, which is both precocious and radical. Like a quartet of poison dart frogs, they appear young and beautiful, but if you stand too close, they will fuck up your life and maybe make you go blind. Their demo is due out shortly, and you can ready yourself to be killed when they share a bill with Tongan Death Grip and others at Gus’ on June 18.
