Jackie Hell & Friends

Tonight at the Comet, XX chromosomes are running amok. Portland’s Magick Daggers bring a steamy, female-fronted electro grind vibe. Nightshirt rock the punky New Wave thing with a fiercely femme energy. Band to watch in 2011 honors go to Minirex, local lasses who bring a modern style and oodles of sass to the girl group tradition. And if there could be such a thing as an XXX chromosome, it would have to belong to the wacko love child of Jackie Curtis and Divine, institutional Seattle institute, hostess with the mostess, “lady” of the evening, the one and only Ms. Jackie Hell.
