The Bottom Dollars

The Bottom Dollars start residency at Brooklyn Bowl on 08.05

This upcoming Tuesday, August 5th, self-proclaimed “rock ’n’ soul” band The Bottom Dollars will begin their month-long residency at Brooklyn Bowl. Comprised of five charismatic (and very hard working) young men, the group has been building a growing fan base since the release of their debut EP “The Halcyon Days” back in 2011. This year, the band is back with ‘Meet Me in Cognito,’ a sophisticated collection of rock songs threaded with bits of blues, folk, and the occasional country twang. With their latest release, the boys have proven themselves to be technically sound musicians, offering guitar riffs, instrumental interludes, and vocal layering characteristic of seasoned rockers. They know how to properly translate it all on stage - a quite rare talent. Be sure to catch them on August 5th, 12th, and 19th, alongside special guests the likes of Aabaraki and The Teen Age. - Jillian Dooley

The Bottom Dollars releases debut full length + tours the West Coast

The Bottom Dollars are that well-worn pair of jeans you can always rely on to get you where you're headed: no matter how dirty they may get. It's that classic rock energy that works like nothing else as your reliable late night, bar-hopping soundtrack. Coming off a recent album release and a string of dates at this year's SXSW, the Brooklyn band is currently touring the West Coast  after releasing their new single, 'Smoker' (streaming). Taken from their recent debut full length 'Meet Me In Cognito,' the track powers through an admission of guilt over a nasty habit. Through pounding drums and down-home guitar solos, the band tries persuading you that 'momma didn't raise a smoker.' Listen below to one of the catchiest tracks from the album, and see if you're convinced. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


The Bottom Dollars, The Hollows & Tall Tall Trees at Paper Box (9.15)

The Hollows, you may remember as recent(-ish) winners of our 'Artist of the Month' poll. Just about a year after a debut album, this Brooklyn-based six-piece ensemble of multi-instrumentalists released in June a self-titled EP, where textural guitars and grand harmonies brought a new depth, drawn from roots rock influences, to their multi-layered folk jams. 

The Bottom Dollars - who from the start pulled together a wide range of sounds from southern rock to blues, mixing-up an all-American high-impact burst of indie rock - dropped yesterday a new single, with which they're introducing the louder road they went down for their new album 'Good News Everyone' (due September 18th). In the first stages of a forthcoming tour, they'll be playing three dates with The Hollows, the second of which will be here in Bushwick at Paper Box (9.15) where they'll be sharing the bill with the high-energy performers of Mike Savino's brainchild Tall Tall Trees and Saint-Louis' Water Liars.

A Deli premiere: The Bottom Dollars' video for “Prizefighter”

With their good old-fashioned folk‘n'roll and a new video to match, The Bottom Dollars (who placed at #35 in our 2011 Best of NYC Poll for emerging artists) have premiered “Prizefighter” this week. The video was shot around iconic New York landmarks like the Coney Island boardwalk and Washington Square Park, and includes, yes, plenty of people having fun and fighting. The band, dressed dapper in 1920’s attires, duke it out in a series of brawls, though not always proving their claimed “prizefighter” status. The elusive single-named Seeley directed the video, which features appearances from a few friends, members of The Nuclears and the frizzy-haired W.M.D. DuBois of Deathrow Tull and Strings for Truth. See The Bottom Dollars live at Mercury Lounge on August 7. - Devon Antonetti
