Pass the estrogen, please: It’s Female-Empowerment Week here in the Daily Dose’s music section. On Tuesday I posted about next week’s “Ladies of the Valley” concert in Bearsville, and today we’re here to talk about Norwegian all-gal garage pop quintet the Cocktail Slippers, who headline tomorrow’s monthly SmashCrashBash!! party at the Half Moon in Hudson.

Rocketing out of the rock ’n’ roll city (?) of Oslo, the group cites Blondie, the Shangri-Las, Joan Jett, the Ramones, and the Beach Boys as their main musical influences. The band recently released its fourth album, People Talk, on Little Steven Van Zandt’s label, Wicked Cool Records, and have gotten heavy airplay on his popular radio show, “Little Steven’s Underground Garage.” Sharing tomorrow night’s bill are New Hampshire mod/power pop unit the Connection and DJs Chris Bishop and Jeff the Chef, who will spin heaping helpings of punk, garage rock, rock ’n’ roll, and old-school R&B.

In this live clip, the Cocktail Slippers play “Soul Salvation,” with an intro by Little Steven himself:

SmashCrashBash!! starring the Cocktail Slippers and the Connection will kick off at the Half Moon in Hudson, New York, at 9pm on November 7. Admission is $6. For more information, call (845) 822-1913 or visit
