ROCK, RIOT, AND RIP IT UP! Barb Wire Dolls are coming to the Sunset Strip and taking up a March residency at the Roxy’s V.I.P lounge, On the Rox. Barb Wire Dolls consist of the appropriately named Queen Isis on vocals, Tas Doll on guitar, voodoo Doll on bass and Greg Doll on drums. The girl-fronted street rock band described as a “girl-fronted Green Day” rocked the strip as the first Greek rock band to play in America back in December at their sold out show at the Roxy, and have since decided to go through with a residency playing every Thursday at On The Rox this March. They’ve gotten nonstop play on the airwaves on the World Famous KROQ thanks to infamous KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer, who heard of the band a few weeks prior to their U.S arrival and started spinning their demo on his show “Rodney on the Roq”. Since then, their song “California” has received wide attention and has become a hit among the airwaves, they’ve signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell (the first for any Greek artist), released an EP, and initiated their new touring van they’ve named “Varbie” to hit LA and take on the town by storm.
Influenced by The Early Punk and new wave scenes including the Sex Pistols, Ramones, Blondie, The Clash, and The Slits, the band describes their style as straight from the street, simple, balls-to-the-wall rock and roll. The band promises to deliver something fresh, new, and vital, and with the help of their growing legion of fans known as the “Street Generation” they’re ready to rock, riot, and rip up the punk rock scene one show and one town at a time, starting with the bright lights of Los Angeles. Barb Wire Dolls feel that music they’ve created is meant to stir up and inspire, and they’re ready to give their new U.S. fans all they got and take their punk rock gospel across the country proclaiming: “The revolution has begun, so what the hell are you gonna do?” You can start by checking out their 6 song EP “Punk the Fussies!” available now on iTunes! You can also download four songs for free now on Barbwiredolls.com, and also stream and download the same songs via Soundcloud.
The Barb Wire Dolls will be playing at On The Rox every Thursday in March! 9:30 pm, with a special guest performer after! $5 cover.
