In May 2021, the Los Angeles Public Library released a video of the Linda Lindas performing “Racist, Sexist Boy” as part of AAPI Heritage Month. The video now has garnered more than 4 million views and received Questlove and Hayley Williams’ approval. Sporting an impressive resume of an NPR Tiny Desk Concert and opening for riot grrrl legends Bikini Kill, the Los Angeles outfit delivered their charming debut, Growing Up (2022). Showcasing a certain emotional maturity, the teen quartet reclaims the anxieties of self-doubt and adolescence into bouncy power punk anthems. Rooted in the blues, the Ghost Wolves’ Austin-sourced grimy riffs join the Mohawk experience – the first of two very of-the-moment Austin shows presented for free by Dr. Martens (with RSVP at drmartenspresents.com).
