The Raincoats

The ladies will rule Chop Suey tonight—the influential London post-punk band the Raincoats, favorites of both Kurt Cobain and 10 Things I Hate About You's punk feminist Kat Stratford, haven't released an album in 16 years, but after Jeff Mangum asked them to play his curated version of All Tomorrow's Parties this year, the girls decided to follow up the festival with five U.S. shows. Seattle is one of the lucky cities they'll hit. Another fabulous all-girl trio, the Kill Rock Stars-signed lo-fi outfit Grass Widow, will be opening the show along with some of Seattle's best DIY rockers, M. Women. M. Women's Andrew McKibben, who provides the band's shadowy guitar riffs, will be the sole male on stage tonight. What a lucky guy! ERIN K. THOMPSON
