Thunderpussy nod to their rock roots with a cover of ‘Somebody To Love’


Thunderpussy know how to fight for their rights and rip some ragers while they’re at it. Still in the trenches of fighting to trademark their band’s name, the Seattle-based group is currently thrusting their way along on a North American tour, “speed-queen”-style.

While their 2018 self-titled record speaks blistering volumes about their classic rock rhythms, their newest release sums up their schtick with three minutes, 24 seconds, and a wicked snappy leotard: A live cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “Somebody to Love.”

Filmed at Belgian festival Pukkelpop, even the quickest glimpse at the vid makes it hard not to draw any Grace Slick 2.0 observations. Catch Thunderpussy struttin’ through ONCE* tomorrow night (August 7) for a free show with Hollis Brown and Carissa Johnson, and revisit our visuals of their recent performance out in Phoenix here.


*Editor’s Note: This show has been moved from Sonia to ONCE in Somerville. Below is a statement from the band:

“In the past few days we were made aware of some very serious allegations of sexual assault and predatory behavior by the owner of Sonia’s, the venue in Cambridge we were supposed to play tomorrow night. In light of this information and our commitment to believing and supporting survivors of sexual violence, we have made the decision to move our Boston show tomorrow evening with Hollis Brown to ONCE in Somerville. Tomorrow’s show at ONCE will be FREE with a $10 suggested donation and all proceeds from the show will be donated to a local organization that supports survivors of sexual violence (if you have suggestions, please let us know). For those of you who already bought tickets to the show Sonia’s, you will be receiving a refund on the card you bought the tickets with and we’d like to invite you to bring your original ticket for a little pre-show meet and greet with us.  SEE YOU SO SOON!!!”
