News York Dolls play Seattle

By weeklyvolcano on October 1, 2006

The New York Dolls. Such lovely boys. So butch, so camp, so degenerate, so coming to Seattle Nov. 11 as part of Little Steven's Underground Garage tour. The Dolls headline the next leg of the tour with The Supersuckers, The Chesterfield Kings and more bands that have not yet been announced.

Gone are the 6-inch heels and most of the original members, but singer David Johansen and guitarist Sylvain Sylvain will grab reunion mania by the skirt Nov. 11 at El Corazon and show Seattle why they the godlike prototype punks, a glamorous collision between the Stooges and the Stones.

Bobble Tiki remembers the Dolls lighting up the early '70s like "Jackass 2" at the box office then faded into oblivion, victims of naughty drugs, naughty management and bad prog-rock flavor of the day.

Ticket prices and sale date for the Seattle show have not been announce. The tour hits Berbati's Pan the night before in Portland, which is on sale for $20 at Ticketweb. â€" Bobble Tiki
