The Dolly Rottens, The Hardcount, Quickie, and White City Graves
FLIGHTS PUB EVERETT PRESENTS
The Snohomish County Debut of The Dolly Rottens, with special guests The Hardcount, Quickie, and White City Graves
Friday, October 12th, 2012
Seattle born and raised, Darci Carlson and Geneva Butler hit it off in 2009 after deciding one day to get together and jam. From there, countless days and nights have been spent writing songs about their ex's, broken hearts, and getting laid. The Dolly Rottens are currently recording their first album, and can be found by tracking their trail of red lipstick stained cigarette butts.
The Dolly Rottens are a Seattle based ALL GIRL rock band.
Singer/songwriters Geneva Butler and Darci Carlson tag team both guitar and vocals, each showcasing their own unique attitude and talent. Persia Saffaie holds down the bass like the sultry, Kiss-obsessed vixen she is, and Heather Thomas brings it all together with her hair-flipping and insane talent on the drums. This 'in your face' fours
ome blends an edgy Rock & Roll crunch with upbeat and catchy Pop punk riffs. A surprising country twang is tossed into the mix when the girls slow it down and spotlight their harmonies and heartfelt songwriting abilities. The Dolly Rottens have a lot to say and aren't afraid to tell it like it is.
The Hardcount is a rock n roll band cut from the same cloth as Motorhead, the Misfits, AC/DC, the Ramones and Johnny Cash. Rock n Roll is in our blood, it keeps us sane enough to walk the planet with "normal people". If we didn't have this we'd be dead. It all started by accident, sort of. All of us had our own things going on, we started doing stuff with each other and it snowballed into the Hard
count. The biggest thing that makes us special is that each one knows their "part". No one needs to worry about a screw up, an attitude, being late, talking trash, getting too drunk or, just being a dick. Trusting that every other member knows what to do, we only worry about 1 thing....making sure that every person that watches us is left speech less! We love what we do and it shows. Even if it isn't your "style" or "scene" you are going to walk away saying "that was really good" (that's the goal anyways). We don't cancel shows, we don't get there late, if we are treated disrespectfully by the club or staff we take with a smile (we will most likely be washing our hair the next time you want us to play though), we don't argue about money, we don't fight with anyone, we don't trash the place and, we make every performance seem like it is going to be our last day on earth....we leave it all on stage.
The Hardcount is led by singer the Reverend Adumb Green (brother of Modest Mouse drummer Jeremiah Green), who has his hand on the trigger at all times and does not hesitate to pull it. The Reverend preaches his message to the congregation, delivering lyrics that cover life's ups and downs by way of his gravelly, whiskey-soaked voice, not unlike Tom Waits or maybe Lemmy of Motorhead.
The guitar is conquered by Disco Donnie, a man built from equal parts love and hate. With an ammunition box loaded with Gibson guitars and Marshall amps, his sound is rooted in classic rock tone but delivers it in his own unique way. His past includes being a founding member of both "Guns of Nevada" and "Jack the Hotrod".
The raw power driving this band forward is generated by drummer, T-Roy. The hard-hitting, no gimmicks, straight to work, longshoreman of the drum world. His history as a drummer began when he was just a kid in grade school. T-Roy is in high demand as a go to drummer for many local bands. With a music education in his back pocket he brings more than just a great beat. He has played with numerous bands such as Jack the Hotrod in the past, but has never hit the drums better than he does now for the Hardcount.
Nothing in the world is black and white (except for our logo). Everything is gray and we hope to paint a picture with our music that we are all stuck on this garbage planet, we all have heartbreak, loneliness, bad times, good times, the mornings (or afternoons) we don't want to get out of bed, questions about the meaning of life, traffic jams, hangovers, empty bank accounts, momentous joy, death and, most importantly.....life!
WHITE CITY GRAVES
n society there are people who commit nefarious deeds. Self destructive acts or crimes against others. This evil exists in all walks of life. It's taking place right now outside your door. White City Graves are the ones bringing these acts to light. Observations of the seedy underbelly the world has to offer. Their name alone, White City Graves, is reflective of this. A name inspired by H.H. Holm
es, America's first serial killer.
White City Graves' sound has been liken to that of the great horror rockers that have come before them, such as; The Misfits, Motorhead and White Zombie. This rakish style rock is an infusion of riff rock and punk. Driving beats and catchy guitar lines coupled with growling vocals makes for rowdy live show.
Here's what people are saying about White City Graves:
"... Your music rocks and paints a picture of what would undoubtedly be a snarling live performance. Seems like you're too talented to be classified with the punk genre but that's just our humble opinion and everybody plays music that's been influenced by different artists. All this merges as talent and experience begins to replace teenage angst and some grow to play better than some of those we originally admired..." Ken & Geri - Longshot Productions
"...Music definitely feels like it has that consistent creepy sort-of-misfits feel, which is cool..." Out Of Step Entertainment
