MUSIC: NOVEMBER 9 • 8PM (DOORS AT 7PM)
HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS GET T
ICKETS

Although often connected with garage rock, Holly GoLightly's music is more a mixture of pre-rock electric country blues, folk and less frantic rock & roll. It brings to mind a bourbon soaked honky tonk bar, evenings on a dusty front porch with your faithful hound, cracked hearts and foot stomping good times.  She creates a world all of her own, one that's warm hearted, true to it's roots and not swayed by fads and fashions. Most recently, Holly and her long-time US band mate Lawyer Dave, have a new side project under the guise of Holly Golightly and The Brokeoffs. LISTEN
