Meg & Dia

7 p.m. Thursday, April 2. Fubar, 3108 Locust Street.



Mainstream music had a plethora of ferocious female musicians as role models in the '90s. But the days when the Breeders, Throwing Muses, Björk, Tori Amos and PJ Harvey sang from the radio speakers are sadly long gone. Thankfully, the sisters Frampton, a.k.a. Meg & Dia, aren't afraid to speak for a whole new generation of tough ladies. The pair's forthcoming album, Here, Here and Here, is a smart collection of tunes that deals with things real girls (and women) face. Lyrics contend with expectations about marriage, not-so-stellar relationships and taking care of your own needs, while Here's music is just as diverse; hard rock, amped-up twang, pop-punk and good old-fashioned pop abound.
