Grab Your Hospital Gowns, Punk Supergroup Childbirth Is Going On Tour

by Katherine Barner

Seattle-native punk super group Childbirth have expanded their tour dates in June, adding a second NYC date. This will be the first time the all-female trio has toured through NYC. They will be playing at Baby’s All Right on June 10, and Shea Stadium on June 9. Childbirth will be joined by Aye Nako, Sharkmuffin, Tin Vulva and Drella at Shea Stadium.

Julia Shapiro, Bree McKenna and Stacy Peck from the bands Chastity Belt, Tacocat, and Pony Time, respectively, make up the humorously and unapologetically honest band, who perform clad in light blue hospital gowns. Childbirth is the sassy, no-filtered best friend every gal needs in their life. No subject is too risqué for them, with songs ranging from topics of menopause to not showering to equality for women.  Their band name itself was chosen because, “Nothing seems more bloody and painful to me than childbirth,” according to McKenna.
