Clementine Creevy, who fronts rock band Cherry Glazerr, dug deep into the textbooks of 1990s hard rock Thursday night at Stubb's during South by Southwest to deliver a searing, energetic set. Decked out in a deeply cool, bright red ensemble, Creevy stalked and bounced across the stage, shredded like nobody’s business and made her mark as an artist with the presence of a true rock star.
All at once polished, heavy, sludgy and clear, Cherry Glazerr got loud, made noise and rocked HARD. Every member of the band had plenty of opportunity to shine with solos, including the instrumentally masterful Creevy.

Creevy also made good use of her wicked, raspy voice, both furious and romantic, recalling icons from bands like Hole and L7 but adding a youthful, contemporary edge. (The confident, powerful performer is only 22.)
If anyone tries to tell you rock and roll is dead, point them to Cherry Glazerr.
