Seattle-based, rock n’ roll band Thunderpussy will be headlining a concert at the Rialto on March 31, 2020.
Thunderpussy is more than a band; they are a reckoning. As rock n’ roll’s new, self-proclaimed, Diamond In The Muff… Thunderpussy is a shiny beacon of glitter and sequins at the end of a long dark tunnel of manufactured mediocrity. If it’s pure titillating rock n’ roll you want, then look no further than this band of women.
The group unleashed its self-titled debut, Thunderpussy [Stardog Records/Republic Records] in 2018 and snatched up over 4 million cumulative streams. In between electrifying gigs coast-to-coast, they garnered widespread acclaim from the likes of Paste, Rolling Stone, Billboard, LA Music Blog, and NPR who claimed, “Thunderpussy is everything you want in rock.” Simultaneously, a heated trademark battle over their name incited national headlines as they clung to free speech, fighting for the “power of the word ‘pussy’ and finally not classifying it as vulgar or weak,” as guitarist, Whitney Petty, says.
Milk It, the band’s 4-song EP, was released in October 2019. It features various drummers, most notably, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith.
