The Pack A.D.
  • Rebecca Blisset
  • The Pack A.D.

I bet both of these bands would kick in you right in the shins if you called them "girl bands." Sure, both members of Vancouver garage-rock two-piece the Pack A.D. and the four members of Seattle's Dee Dees have "female" checked on their respective driver's licenses, but simply "girl bands" they are not. Pack A.D. singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer/songwriter Maya Miller play loud minimalist rock, à la other loud and rowdy two-pieces like the Black Keys and the Kills. The Dee Dees are this city's premier Ramones tribute band, playing the punk classics from the '70s and beyond. Both wanna party with you and properly shake the roof of Barboza.
