Holly Golightly & The Broke-Offs Perform This Saturday Night at Emo’s
First things first in the history of UK singer-songwriter Holly Golightly: She began her musical career as a co-founding member of the all-girl garage band Thee Headcoatees, a splinter group of Thee Headcoats, in 1991. After four years with the band, she left to record her debut release, The Good Things, in 1995. Throughout the years, after countless albums, singles, and several collaborations with other artists, she remains a unique voice in roots music.
Holly and her longtime stand-up bass player from her U.S. tour, Lawyer Dave, began a new side-project around 2007. Their first release as Holly Golightly and The Broke-Offs, You Can’t Buy A Gun When You’re Crying was released on Damaged Goods Records in the UK. Their second release, Dirt Don’t Hurt, came out in October this year.
This is great stuff to check out, if you haven’t already. Holly Golightly and The Broke-Offs will be in town this Saturday night to play on Emo’s indoor stage, 603 Red River. On the same bill, The Pons (formerly Lalaland) are having their CD release performance, and the evening starts out with Delany Davidson. Good times, good times.
