Dollyrots to Perform May 16PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The band The Dollyrots will return to the ITAM Lodge
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.
