It all started when…

Founded in 2015 by guitarist Corinne Caouette and bassist Pamela Laizure, Minneapolis-based punk-surf-soul band Black Widows also includes Sarah Muellerleile on guitar and a rotating cast of all-star drummers including Missi Sommers, Laura Bennett, Lady Tobalyas, and Kim Mancini. 

Black Widows are known for their wily, surfy guitar tones and gritty bass grooves, topped by catchy lyrics and girl-group harmonies. If their rock-and-roll guitar surf storm isn’t enough, you can catch one of their jaw-dropping stage shows featuring Black Widow Go-Go Dancers, BW Singers including local Lyrical-dance-pop-hip-hop up and comer Athereal Rose and a variety of guest performers at a variety of venues both local and national. Black Widows' latest EP release "Sounds of Tortuga Island," explores new territory with an all instrumental, rox-otica soundscape that takes you to another time and place. August 18th, 2018 they will Celebrate the release of their second Instrumental Rox-otica EPs back to back with a more traditional BW EP at Bryant Lake Bowl Theater in Minneapolis. Fall/ Winter 2018 will be spent writing and recording a full length Record scheduled to come out 2019 with local and national shows to support it. Black Widows have a full Local summer Show Calendar. Follow them. You won't be disappointed!
