"The Crofoot is proud to present THE SLITS live in concert at the Eagle Theater. As Mark Perry says: "They (The Slits) were loud brash bold and unrepentant.. they never compromised their image or stance...they must have inspired loads of women to pick up a guitar and form a band....they were pure punk driven by female power...they shocked a lot of people, both on and of stage. They were dangerous, and their very presence threatened those that considered rock to be a male-only pursuit." Flash-forward to 2008 and Slits are back in action, with Ari Up and bassist Tessa and friends continuing to create music in their jungly dubby punk style. With SHELL SHAG and more."
