Long Island Riot Grrrl

Our Story

Sharp Violet is a feminist punk band from Lindenhurst, NY. The band consists of Liz on Vocals, Jessica Sapphire on Lead Guitar, Marie On Bass, Alli on Rhythm Guitar and Jasmine on drums. Forming in 2016, they quickly made a name for themselves as one of the few all female rock bands in the Long Island music scene. They have played over 50 shows including venues such as Revolution, Amityville Music Hall, Lucky 13, Pianos and Bowery Electric. They’ve also played at Convention Hall and the University of Delaware for the Asbury Park Punk Rock Flea Market. Sharp Violet has opened for such acts as Michale Graves formerly of The Misfits, Janet Gardner of Vixen and The Bullet Boys. Sharp Violet channels the riot grrrl bands of the 90s by turning up the volume and giving a voice to those too afraid to speak out. In a still sexist society, punk rock feminism is needed now more than ever.
