Awhile back, Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs played a show at The Echo. It was an odd sort of performance because they were booked on a residency night (if I remember correctly, Castledoor held it there that month) and seemingly got a shorter time slot because of it. Nevertheless, it was still a good show though.
I first heard of Holly Golightly back in 2003, when she released the LP Truly She Is None Other. A review of the album in Bust Magazine caught my eye which stated "with your sweet lil' ditties that make us want to redecorate our rooms into tiki hideaways, put on our best pastel '50s prom dresses, and float around our homes, dusting just for fun! Let's throw a fondue party in your honor and listen to your Candy Land voice peep through you vintage amp crackle, telling us to remind our loves, 'Don't forget I let you in and I'll let you out again.'" Needless to say, I was intrigued enough to go out and pick up the album, and fell in love with it; and have been listening to her music ever since.
I finally got to attend one of Holly Golightly's shows in 2004 (at Spaceland), which took place after she had released Slowly But Surely (which turned out to be the last full-length album of original material before she started pursuing music with "& The Brokeoffs) Since she unfortunately doesn't seem to tour the U.S. that much, this was the next show of hers that took place in L.A. - which was very different from her previous work, in that the "Brokeoffs" music was more geared towards alternative country. I must confess I prefer her older music, but the show wasn't bad in itself.
