Dressy Bessy

Dressy Bessy is an indie rock band from Denver, Colorado, associated with the Elephant Six Collective. Guitarist John Hill also plays with The Apples in Stereo. Lead vocalist/guitarist Tammy Ealom formed the band with drummer Darren Albert and guitarist turned bassist Rob Greene in 1996. The name was taken from a popular Playskool doll of the 1970s. Hill joined around the time they started recording. [Wiki]
AOL Spinner is streaming the new Dressy Bessy album Largehearted Boy was talking about. There's also a tour.

Tickets are on sale for a September 26th Dressy Bessy show at Union Hall. The Coast and Fred Astereo are also on that bill and it's the late show after the comedy gets done. Dressy Bessy are also playing a show with The Coast one night earlier at Arlene's Grocery in Manhattan.

A whole bunch of other Elephant 6ers (too many to list again) are also touring before the end of the year. All Dressy Bessy dates below...
