—The Trouble Dolls
Smells Like Teen Spirit
The Trouble Dolls are a four-piece coed rock band whose first album, Sticky, was released in Australia on Half a Cow Records and in the U.K. on Warmfuzz Records. Their second album, The Difficult Neverending Second Album, was released in real time, as it was being made, on SoundCloud. They sound like your favorite band crossed with another amazing band you’ve never heard of, with harmonies.
Come As You Are
Songwriter, singer, musician. Her lyrics reveal the stories of powerful women in all their incarnations, real and mythological. There is also something about the celebration of life and the freedom and camaraderie that can only be found in the corner bar or a stranger’s bed. The roots are country and blues, of course.
Kelly Webb is a singer/songwriter, director, yoga teacher, tarot-reader, and various other nouns. She wrote her first song in the first grade, started learning guitar her senior year of high school and writing good songs in college. She was once described by the Legendary Sticker Dude as â€œa feminist breath of fresh air and unrelenting fire. She’s in the process of recording covers for the second season of the web series Kombucha Catch-Up, which she co-wrote, directed, and penned the theme song for (you can check out the first season on YouTube). She has also recorded theme songs for the podcast Conversations between Cousins and the web series I Kissed Your Boyfriend: Another Feminist Vlog. When she’s not writing songs, Webb is trying to make things—web series, theater, magic, a mess.
Todd Carlstrom has played on many of NYC’s stages with his own band, Todd Carlstrom and the Clamour, as well as Heroes of the Alamo, The Domestics, and others. He has appeared in many Boog City events and has booked a fair bunch as well, including this one. Check out his album Gold on the Map.

On a Plain
Something in the Way/Endless Nameless
Heavy guitars. Dark melodies. No love songs. This is King Dutch.
Formed in 2019 on the aromatic banks of the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, N.Y., King Dutch hearkens back to a time when rock music rocked. No mere retro artists, King Dutch takes inspiration from ’90s alternative rock, constructing original grungy tunes expressing the angst of a new generation.
