UPSET is singer, songwriter, and guitarist Ali Koehler (you may remember the calendar she co-curated in January) plus guitarist, singer, and songwriter Jenn Prince (check out the mixtape she made for this week's issue), newest member Rachel Gagliardi (of SLUTEVER who I'm sure you remember we interviewed once) and drummer Patty Schemel (who we only hope will one day write an advice column for us). If UPSET weren't already on your radar via their excellent 2013 LP for Don Giovanni Records, She's Gone, perhaps they will be now with this gem of a hardcore cover. In advance of their upcoming tour to Texas, UPSET have released their take on 7 Seconds' "Not Just Boys Fun," a song that kind of sounds like it was meant to be sung by Koehler all along: "You feel so fucking threatened / When they stand out in front / A stupid, passive piece of meat is all you really want / But it's not just boys' fun / not just boys fun / NOT JUST BOYS FUN / NOT JUST BOYS FUN." Check it out above. All of the band's tour dates below, which definitely includes a date with Lil B. Take us with you? xox
