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"
