Bad Waitress is a fierce and playful punk rock slap to the face comprised of four young Toronto women.
It isn't just a coincidence that they're all women either: vocalist/guitarist Kali-Ann Butala moved to Toronto from the Northwest Territories five years specifically with the desire to play with other women. The band’s first EP, mixed and mastered by Kali-Ann, plays along this theme in a cheeky and subversive way, with the biting “We’re Girls,” to the witchy chanting of “Devil’s Vagina,”
It would be wrong to pigeonhole the artists-formerly-known-as-Nude-Dogs as just girl punk. Their influences include punk stalwarts as Fugazi and Gang of Four, with comparisons to acts like 7 Year Bitch and Babes in Toyland, with something a little extra mixed in there too. Butala’s Howlin’ Wolf tattoo is what she and guitarist Katelyn Molgard initially bonded over. The whole band – rounded out by drummer Eva Moon and bassist Jessica Maxwell – describe themselves as inseparable, and the enjoyment they have from making music together is palpable. Their live shows are vicious and fun, and best characterized by the direct missive from their song “Fuck This,” which opens with the chant: “F-U-C-K/What’s the words we wanna say” before launching into the song at full force
With the release of Bad Waitress’ new EP, Party Bangers: Volume 1, Bad Waitress moves into a heavier, party-focused sound, resting on a commitment keep having fun as loudly and rowdily as possible. - Elena Cremonese
