All too often The Dollyrots have come to town as a headlining act – perfect for the couple dozen fans that continue to support the band with each pass through Columbus, but never really expanding their fanbase. For the first time that I can remember, The Dollyrots are pulling into Columbus with not a lot to lose but a ton to gain as they will be providing support for Bowling for Soup. Both bands are heavily endorsed by WNCI though I’m not quite sure that BFS’s fans have any idea who The Dollyrots are. That will change Tuesday night – I just hope The Dollyrots have brought along enough merch to satisfy the masses.
A few weeks ago, The Dollyrots premiered a brand new video for “Rollercoaster,” a mild departure from the trio’s typical POP-punk sound. Here it is.
The Dollyrots occupy the middle slot on the Patent Pending / Bowling for Soup bill on Tuesday night at The Basement. Doors open at 6pm with The Dollyrots hitting the stage around 8:45.
