FEBRUARY CALENDAR

Denver-based indie-pop band DRESSY BESSY was led by singer/guitarist Tammy Ealom, who began her musical career as a member of the little-known 40th Day; in time she left the group to focus on writing her own material, eventually joining the earliest incarnation of the Minders. A series of short-lived projects (including a stint in Sissy Fuzz) followed before a frustrated Ealom befriended drummer Darren Albert, and with bassist Rob Greene they formed DRESSY BESSY, issuing their debut single "Ultra Vivid Colour" in mid-1997. Ealom's boyfriend, Apples in Stereo guitarist John Hill, signed on for 1998's You Stand Here EP; the full-length Pink Hearts, Yellow Moons followed early the next year; California, the band's sophomore album, was issued in late 2000. Thanks to the help of our friends over at Steady Sounds, they're coming through Richmond with killer support by Richmond favorites CHRISTI and Brooklyn prog-punks OLD MONK!

DRESSY BESSY, CHRISTI & OLD MONK are coming to Strange Matter on Tuesday, February 16th!
