    Apr 27, 2012 L'Assassins performs in The Current studios

L'Assassins have been playing together for over two years, but they may seem new to local music fans since L'Assassins wasn't always their name. In fact, the quartet performed without a title for months before settling on something that fit their aesthetic and style. They've found their identity and are rising fast: L'Assassins will be playing the inaugural Girls Got Rhythm Fest in early May.

Taking cues from Suzi Quatro, Dum Dum Girls and Joan Jett, L'Assassins have created a series of propulsive songs that exude confidence. But let's not pigeonhole them as the next installment of a modern riot grrrl movement. These ladies aren't following anyone's rules. That attitude is what makes L'Assassins one of the most refreshing bands in local music right now.

Songs performed: "7PM," "Go," "Wild Man (Tamrons cover)," and "Creep"
