Lia Chang: The Shabby Dolls Perform at The Branded Saloon on 1/13 and The Local 269 on 1/30

Catch The Shabby Dolls at The Branded Saloon in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn (corner of Vanderbilt and Bergen) at 8pm tonight, or on Monday, January 30, 2012 at The Local 269, 269 Houston St @ Suffolk at 7pm.

With their original close-harmony spin on some of the more obscure classics of the country/blues Americana songbook, The Shabby Dolls will make you want to kindle a whiskey fire in your belly and get up and dance barefoot in front of the stage. As their two female leads, backed by mandolin or slide guitar, twine their voices together to spin out tales of love, loss and long journeys by train, or give a honky tonk twist to a more recent hit, you’ll swear heartache has never sounded so luminous.
