While Nina Diaz is away on a solo-album sabbatical, the other girls of Girl In A Coma surely will play. Fea, the raw, messy punk rock side project of Phanie Diaz and Jenn Alva will perform Saturday at House of Rock with Lady Katherine and Shayna Sands Band. Doors are at 8 p.m. Fea is meant to be the “ugly” riot grrl alternative approach to Girl In A Coma’s “beautiful” indie rock pursuits. Joining Phanie and Jenn are Theresa Moher, formerly of Lisa Frank, on vocals and the lone boy, Aaron, on guitar. The group made its debut at San Antonio’s Maverick Music Festival and has more shows and new songs in the works. Folkadelic singer-songwriter Shayna Sands, who splits time between Corpus Christi and New York, and Katherine Mireles, a rock singer who joins with jam rock band Echo to form Lady Katherine, will be the openers.
Hardcore/experimental metal band Arsonists Get All the Girls began as a joke between friends in 2005 in Santa Cruz, Calif. The joke quickly became a serious pursuit and has resulted in five albums, the latest being 2013′s “Listen to the Color.” Arsonists Get All the Girls plays with The Lord of War, The Last 10 Seconds of War and Beyond the Shore on Monday at House of Rock. Doors are at 7 p.m.
