Light-years beyond "sassy" are The Haggard, two dykes from Portland whose hardcore guitar and drum onslaught, screaming vocals, death-metal growls and radical lyrical agenda will be assaulting Kings' patrons as part of the Mr. Lady Records showcase. (Mr. Lady is the Durham-based "lesbocore" label started by Butchies lead singer Kaia Wilson and experimental filmmaker Tammy Rae Carland.) Whether it's Wilson's whisper-to-a-scream vocals or bassist Alison Martlew's breathy alto, The Butchies always rock, alternating passionate gyno-punk with queer politics and catchy punk-pop hooks. Also featured is newcomer Tami Hart, whose 2000 debut, No Light in August, recalls Amy Ray with a dash of Elliott Smith. Check out all three acts at Kings on Wednesday, Feb. 28. And just imagine: You'll be occupying the same space as Southern Championship Wrestling aficionados. Call 831-1005 for details.
