They Wanna Touch You

Local all-woman band Dolorata grew from the roots of the Shelley Doty X-tet, the Hail Marys, and 4 Non Blondes, so, yeah, it's a rock band. Or a rawk band, maybe. Whatever; your devil horns are destined for the air. Listening to the arena sound of "You Gotta Want It," for example, we think of Joan Jett, the Donnas, and definitely L7, but like any self-respecting rock band, Dolorata considers its main influence to be Led Zeppelin. And like Led Zeppelin, all members of this group are way overqualified for bar gigging, but they wouldn't have it any other way. Thundering drums, screamy guitar riffs, and a violin wielded like Jethro Tull's flute — we already told you where your devil horns are headed.
