Wax Idols: Show Preview

Wax Idols began as a vehicle for Bay Area garage-punk songstress Heather Fedewa, aka Hether Fortune (Bare Wires, Hunx & His Punx), but since has become a proper Oakland-based combo. Their 2011 debut No Future shows a spot-on awareness and incorporation of rock history, including the lean angularity of Wire (a surging cover of their "Sand in My Joints"), the dense throb of UK post-punk, Riot Grrl vim, and even traces of 1960s girl-groups in their vocal harmonies — this is no one-trick pony. This week's show at Brick and Mortar Music Hall commemorates the release of their new, more abrasive-sounding album, Discipline + Desire, on the East Bay's vaunted Slumberland Records.
