Ben:

In late September, I stumbled upon G.L.O.S.S. (Girls Living Outside Society's Shit), a queer hardcore punk band from Olympia. The band has a number of LGBTQ members in it, including a trans woman lead singer. They have released a demo and an EP, Trans Day of Revenge.

The first time I heard "Give Violence a Chance," chills went down my spine. It activated the part of my lizard brain that made me like the Dead Kennedys. It is unapologetically violent, political, and angry, but also really fucking good music. G.L.O.S.S. broke up after TDoR, but I'm holding out hope that, with this radically different political environment, they'll find a way to make new music.
