Lost Lake was visited by local Riot Grrrl band Dressy Bessy last Saturday night. After a stretch of time on the road touring, the band returned home and sang their hearts out to a room full of their adoring fans. The band released their fifth album, Kingsized last year, which was over an eight year break from their prior album in 2008. This homecoming show proved the rumors were right: Dressy Bessy is truly back, powered up ready to go.
It’s hard not to fall in love with lead singer Tammy Ealom. She is the full embodiment of all human characteristics on stage, bouncing back and forth from playful, mischievous, moody, bold and soft all in one song’s worth of music. Audience members showed their love for the band, dancing and singing along, making for a warm welcome home. The band performed songs new and old, spanning throughout their 17-year discography. Dressy Bessy has proven to be timeless- forever mixing rock and glam together like a sour patch kid candy. Also well worth a shout out was show opener Surf Mom. Leave it to a Dressy Bessy show to find Denver’s next generation of rad girl rockers.
