PHOTOS / VIDS: Screaming Females Played Paterson, 6/10/18


A Red Wheel Barrow


Words, Pics, and Videos by Rose Lamela


A few months ago Screaming Females announced they were playing in Paterson at A Red Wheel Barrow. Paterson is around the corner from me, and I can always use some Screaming Females in my day. Their music allows my soul to enjoy its restless side.


I drove around Paterson perplexed on where the show was actually taking place. There was a big factory that had a gate around it that displayed the same address as the post. It looked abandoned. I walked around the factory and found a small shed. I recognized some fans I have seen at other shows standing outside.


"Are they seriously playing here?" Super Fan Dude said (I can't remember your name. So sorry.)


"I think so," I said with a little hesitation.


I waited around for a while. When I saw Marissa [Paternoster] walk in, a smile came over my face. I am at the right place and this is about to be the most personal show I have ever been to. It is what every big fan dreams of. Ok, maybe if they played in my living room that would be a dream come true; but I will take it.


They started off with the song "Sheep" and played a mixture of new and old. As usual they jam out and change up their originals to make for an amazing live experience. This is a band that never seems to disappoint. If you have not gotten to chance to see them live, it's time to put in on your bucket list.
