Bruiser Queen w/ Super Awesome Special Guests at Flagstaff’s Green Room
Garage Pop Rock N Roll duo Bruiser Queen (St. Louis, MO) blend 21st Century punk stomp with 60’s girl group shimmy. Morgan Nusbaum’s vocals & guitar arrive on stage like a Riot Grrrl but bop to the beat of Jason Potter’s huge, dark drumming. New single, “Have Fun” is now available via streaming and digital services.
Bruiser Queen is the collaborative effort of singer/guitarist, Morgan Nusbaum, and drummer Jason Potter. Formed in 2010, the garage rock and roll duo began winning over the Midwest in 2012 with the release of their first full-length album titled Swears, which preceded the highly praised In Your Room 7″/EP in 2013 on Certified PR Records. The title track, “In Your Room,” was named “Best Local Single of the Past 12 Months” by the Riverfront Times and was a winner on the 2013 Village Voice Pazz and Jop Singles Chart. Sweet Static’s “On The Radio” and “Some Girl’s Ghost” were winners in 2014.
In the span of seven years, Bruiser Queen has been voted “Best Rock Band” (2016 and 2015) and “Best Garage Band” (2014) according to the RFT Music Awards Readers Poll, ranked at #36 on the KDHX Top Album Spins of 2012 Chart, and has filled supporting slots for artists including Best Coast, Murder by Death, Wanda Jackson, Polyphonic Spree, American Wrestlers, Screaming Females, Corin Tucker Band, and Tacocat.
