Diet Cig, Great Grandpa & The Spook School at Rickshaw Stop

What better way to throw a middle finger to the saccharine capitalist scam of Valentine’s Day than a night of female- and queer-fronted punk music? New York pop-punk outfit Diet Cig will headline the Rickshaw Stop on Feb. 14, punctuating brokenhearted angst with power-chord anthems such as “Harvard,” in which singer Alex Luciano’s soft whine escalates into a salty kiss-off to an ex who left her for a college girl. In “Tummy Ache,” the lead single off its latest album, Luciano laments the stifling landscape for femmes in the stiflingly male-dominated scene of punk music, sighing, It’s hard to be a punk while wearing a skirt. Other acts of the night include Great Grandpa, a grunge-pop band from Seattle with frontwoman Alex Menne’s twee-tinged vocals dripping with sarcasm and distaste for boring men, and The Spook School, a Scottish quartet that makes indie pop about the fluidity of gender and sexuality.
