Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs

Singer-songwriter Holly Golightly has always had a love affair with American roots music, especially rockabilly and Northwest '60s garage. She became known to many fans first in her association with Billy Childish, the female group Thee Headcoatees, and started recording around 1992, while her first solo project debuted in 1995.

Over 20 albums later, Golightly continues more recent explorations of country blues. But about one-half of Medicine County is more clearly influenced by the progeny of Cash at his blackest--Nick Cave, the Handsome Family, and the Louvin Brothers of "Knoxville Girl". It makes for a strong contribution to the creative re-interpretations of genres and their expectations, without a radical departure from them. [PopMatters]

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs, aka now-Georgia residents Holly Golightly and Lawyer Dave, will head out on tour in December. That tour will include a pair of NYC shows : Mercury Lounge on 12/9 (for the late show) and Knitting Factory the next night 12/10. Tickets for both the Mercury Lounge and Knitting Factory shows are on sale.

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs released their latest LP Medicine County earlier this year, and recently played both Mercury Lounge and Knitting Factory in June.

The St. Louis show has been canceled. Anyone know if the other shows are still happening?
