Cherry Glazerr lead vocalist and guitarist Clementine Creevy has addressed the “outrageous” sexism and verbal abuse her band faces while on the road.
The Los Angeles punk outfit is currently touring the U.S. in support of their third album, 2017’s Apocalypstick (Secretly Canadian), though wowing audiences is the least of their worries.
In a post on Facebook, Creevy says her band, sound engineer and road manager are met with a “simply unreal” level of sexism at some stops. “It’s outrageous,” writes Creevy, who founded the act in 2012. “We walk into a venue and people look the other way. They treat us with open hostility. They ignore us, call us names.” Creevy concludes, “It makes me sick, fills me with a rage that I know can’t be healthy for me. I feel bad for them, living with such anger and stupidity. I don’t blame men, of course. I blame the patriarchy, of which we are all victims.”
Cherry Glazerr’s next show is Wednesday at Brooklyn Steel. Read Clementine’s social post below.
