Death Valley Girls


On Facebook, the Los Angeles-based band Death Valley Girls lists a lone influence: "the night-time." Really, that should give listeners a good idea of what they're in for with the heavy indie band, which pounds out what it calls "the hypercharged, in the red, scuzzy rock every generation yearns for." The group's latest album, Darkness Rains (Suicide Squeeze, 2018), is an eerie, otherworldly symphony in 10 gothic tracks, with vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Bonnie Bloomgarden and guitarist Larry Schemel leading the charge, and bassist Alana Amram, drummer Laura Harris and a selection of every-changing guest artists (including members of Moaning, The Shivas and The Make Up) rounding out the group's sound. On Friday, Nov. 9, DVG will make a pitstop in Boise to shake the stage at The Olympic. Don't miss it.
