PWR BTTM performs on Thursday, March 10 at midnight on the second floor of Ampersand.
You might not know PWR BTTM yet, but the duo is one of the bands playing the 2016 Savannah Stopover that seems on the verge of breaking out big. The queer punk duo have just launched a lengthy tour with Ra Ra Riot, who headline earlier on Thursday at the festival kickoff at the North Garden of the Ships of the Sea Museum. Sun Club and And The Kids are also traveling with the lineup and also playing Stopover.
PWR BTTM has been in the news lately for a clause in their rider calling for gender neutral restrooms — check out Fusion’s How this band is making punk show venues more trans-friendly — but they’re going to stay in the news because of catchy songs like these (I love the languid vocals and the variations in tempo) and their transgressive pop esthetic.
