There are few blues-rock groups going today that can stand out in a scene filled with metalcore and riff-chugging post-grunge bands. There are even fewer that front a strong female vocalist. Dorothy not only stands out in this way, but towers over other bands that attepmt the sound.
On an extremely hot day in St. Louis, Dorothy performed to over 10,000 people on the first date of Dorothy’s longest tour to date supporting Breaking Benjamin and Chevelle. There were some technical difficulties in the opening few minutes with audio levels, however everything sounded fine from the crowd. It might have been issues with the in-ear audio because the guitars and vocals came in solid through the amphitheater.
It’s worth pointing out that some big concerts don’t have the entire venue packed until later in the night for headliners. That was not the case last night as Dorothy performed in front of a packed house in the late afternoon.
New music is being written according to an interview this past May. Hearing some of her biggest songs played live reinvigorated my interest to hear what she has planned for the future.
Dorothy will be on the massive tour going through the rest of summer and into fall. You can find upcoming tour dates on the Facebook page here: Dorothy on Facebook
