The Dollyrots are this week's Flier of the Week partly because this is one of the better offerings in a weak field, and partly because their latest record, which came out in 2007, is called Because I'm Awesome, which is also the name of the best song on said album. Also be sure to check out "My Best Friend's Hot" and their cover of Melanie's "Brand New Key." If you like power chords and Josie and the Pussycats-style pop, this show is for you.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
