A while back in my You Tube feed I saw a video for song called Dark Nights by a band called Dorothy. I liked it. Watched some more of their music and thought, "How have I not heard this before? Why do they not get time on the radio? This is awesome!"
Then late in November I saw that Dorothy was kicking off their tour this season at The Rave in Milwaukee. Cool. I am going to share this with my boys, I know what we're getting them for Christmas.
So yesterday we went to a concert. Here are some photos from The Rave's website.
One cool thing Dorothy does is choose opening acts from local bands. Or semi-local anyway. For this show she choose a band called Rivals from Houghton, MI ... a small town in the UP. They were a good opening act. Dynamic. Got the crowd pumped up for Dorothy.
The main act was the main act, though. Dorothy was amazing. Loud, fast, fun. Kind of a small crowd ... small enough to play in the bar at the Rave instead of the main ballroom. Made for a real intimate show with the band RIGHT THERE!!! I mean Dorothy was literally right down in the fans' faces, interacting with us. It was great.
You can actually see me & Ben in this picture ... the back of our heads, anyway.
