Print Story | Email Story
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The band The Dollyrots will return to the ITAM Lodge

              THE DOLLYROTS
for a matinee performance presented by Rebel Sound Records on Sunday, May 16, beginning at 1pm. A portion of the proceeds will benefit local radio station WTBR 89.7 FM.

The Dollyrots' most recent performance in the area was in 2008 at Berkshire Community College as part of the Rock On! concert event. The three-piece band comprised of Chris Black (drums), Luis Cabezas (guitar) and Kelly Ogden (bass) are currently on a North American tour with UK punk legends, the Buzzcocks. The Pittsfield appearance falls on one of the only days on the extensive tour not on the original itinerary; however the Buzzcocks will not be performing.

The City of Pittsfield honored The Dollyrots at the 2008 BCC date with a letter from Mayor James M. Ruberto thanking the band for mentioning Pittsfield as one of their favorite places to play while on tour. Recent appearances on the Vans Warped Tour, CSI: NY, The Price is Right, ABC Family’s Greek, Ugly Betty and The CW’s Reaper have given The Dollyrots many new fans.  They have also recently completed a US tour with the band Bowling For Soup. WTBR has been spinning the most recent single from The Dollyrots "California Beach Boy" and their latest album will be released on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records this summer.

Other bands appearing will be Sunday Night Scene from Oceanside N.Y., Dead Aces from Troy N.Y., Goodbye For A Day from Adams and the final performance from Pioneer Valley’s White Boy Can’t Jump.

Advance tickets for the all ages matinee are $8 and are currently on sale at Rebel Sound Records (146-A North St.), Wood Bros. (Allendale Shopping Center), Courier Printing (26 First St.). Tickets will be $10 at the door.

The ITAM Lounge is located at 96 Waubeek Road.

Cultural Pittsfield This Week: Aug. 23-29

This weekend is your last chance to see the 2019 Pittsfield Shakespeare in the Park production of Much Ado About Nothing. Performances are held on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 8 p.m. on the First Street Common. Featuring the witty on-again, off-again lovers Beatrice and Benedick, Much Ado is the story of the trials of love in a society dominated by patriarchal traditions. Beatrice's cousin Hero and the soldier Claudio meet and fall in love, but when a man spreads nasty rumors about her, Hero's voice is silenced and their relationship torn apart. Loyalties are tested as the community responds, including a ragtag group of officers who just might save the day. FREE, donations suggested.
The Shaker Barn Music Series presents singer-songwriter Nellie McKay. The deep, and deeply funny, McKay has paid tribute to the disparate likes of Doris Day, transgender jazz pianist Billy Tipton, environmentalist Rachel Carson and comedian Joan Rivers. Wallace Field opens. 7:30 p.m.
