Thelma and the Sleaze, Itchy Kitty

If you’re still looking for some more edgy transgressive vibes following Spokane Pride weekend, Thelma and the Sleaze might be right up your alley. The queer Nashville band fronted by ferocious hellcat Lauren “LG” Gilbert revels in the grime of bar band blues rock. On the group’s 2023 album Holey Water, the intentional rough edges and lack of polish allows TatS to interject little tastes of perhaps unexpected influences (The Shangri-Las, Brian Eno, Nine Inch Nails, etc.) with extreme subtlety. So grab your bestie by the hand, put the pedal to the metal, and careen into Thelma and the Sleaze’s Grand Canyon of queer Southern rock.

Thelma and the Sleaze, Pit • Tue, June 11 at 9 pm • $12 • 21+ • The District Bar • 916 W. First Ave. •
