The husband and wife punk-pop duo of Kelly and Luis are gearing up to play four California dates with the Buzzcocks. They’ll be at The Roxy Theatre on June 29 and June 30, on July 1 they’re at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco and July 2 they play Blue Lamp in Sacramento.
The band’s 2016 live album/DVD Family Vacation: Live in Los Angeles bowed at No. 15 on Billboard’s Heatseekers album chart. Barefoot And Pregnant earned The Dollyrots their first chart appearance, peaking at No. 7 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers.
Dollyrots Album ‘Whiplash Splash’
Both chart appearances were preceded by successful crowdsourcing campaigns through the popular app, PledgeMusic. This followed the group’s 2012’s self-titled LP, two albums on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records, and a 2004 debut through the Lookout!/Panic Button Records.
In the meantime, Kelly and Luis have had two kids and take them on the road with them, touring all over the U.S. Along the way, they pick up more fans and even a new players in the band or two. A recent guest on drums was Rikki Styxx from The Two Tens.
