New Song, New Album, New US Tour

New Music and Florida Tour from Dorothy
I caught Dorothy at Earthday Birthday 23 back in the Spring of 2016, when they were one of the best bands to take the stage on a day that was packed with killer rock music. Since that time, they’ve been on my new music radar, and my ears have been entertained with some torrid alt-rock as their reputation has continued to grow.
