The Degenerettes are a queer art rock power trio from Baltimore, MD. The all-girl group, originally formed in a Baltimore basement in 2005, brings together three magnates of Baltimore's DIY art and music scenes. In addition to performing in rock clubs, warehouses, and galleries on the East Coast, The Degenerettes collaborate with The Miss America Puppet Show, and are among the subjects of Riot Acts, an indie doc on transgender musicians released in 2009.
Influenced by years on the garage rock, soul, roots, and punk rock scenes along with obsessive movie-watching, The Degenerettes' bass-driven jangly fuzz guitar sounds combine with Rahne Alexander’s literary, often humorous songwriting, creating multiple narrative universes—from torrid mummy love affairs to teenybopper spies to Baltimore streets. They are the soundtrack of the Velvet Underground and the Runaways on a big gay double date at a midnight movie.
