More About

If there is any such thing as garage rock royalty, Holly Golightly certainly must be a member. Lo-fi before there was such a thing, and cool from the get-go, Ms. Golightly visits Phoenix for the very first time with her backing band, The Brokeoffs (which is really just one guy, Holly's partner, Lawyer Dave). Golightly first made a name for herself as part of Thee Headcoatees, which were connected at the hip to Billy Childish's Thee Headcoats during the '90s. Over the years, the British songwriter has been prolific in her output of seven-inch singles, full-length records, and multiple collaborations, and her sound has always been raw, yet rootsy, with garage rock overtones and fantastic lyrics that will make you laugh and cringe at the same time. This show will charm the tapered pants off of folks who enjoy using terms like "alt-country" or "the digital Delta," and there may not be a hipper show in Phoenix this heat season, let alone May.
