MySpace image of the DOLLYROTS.

As it Happens....The DOLLYROTS












"Because I'm Awesome", the title of the new cd by the DOLLYROTS, which are in town for a show at RockBottom Saloon and shooting a video for their new song, Brand new key, .
The shoot is taking place here in San Antonio with my friend, awesome director Jim Mendiola, who is based in Los Angeles.The DOLLYROTS paid a visit to the Jive Refried this evening prior to their show tonight, I was asked by Jim to help give some thoughts on accessories for the video shoot, which is happening tommorrow at a downtown location. Kelly the voice had her rockin' outfit , slick denim pants with leather belt adorned with bullet shells, and a
light pink top with ribbons on shoulder and kickin' black and white polka dots heels( pictured but blurry) . She showed up lugging two green suitcases in a Faux-fur white vest spray painted in bright blue with the words "not Real" on the back,She said she was tired of people asking her.I LOVE it!! AND it seemed that she was making her own clothes though I am not for sure. I Did love her Style!
Chris (pictured in western shirt above) Found this western vintage shirt that fit the vibe Jim was going for, Chris is the drummer.Wow!
Luis,(far left blurry pic), Guitar man, decided to wear his own black t-shirt, though we did suggest to cut a slit on the front of the tee right at the collar, for a more edgy rock look. So now GO and look them up they have a really great sound , they are on blackheart records label, same as my friends, Girl in a Coma. I want to say thanks to Jimmy, for keeping us vital.
THE DOLLYROTS invited to put us on the Guest list tonight and we have yet to decide but it's looking like
this is the way it happens here at the Jive Refried. Lately.

and steering toward Fashion Forward. This is Sahar, in test shots, as we select oufits that convey the fun and folly of THE Jive Refried. this red satin dress with all the bright tulle ruffles
comes close. Update: Photoshoot with Sahar and Asia, Photographed by Troy Wise, went very well and with the help of Henry De la Paz doing the girl's hair, who happen to be in same building doing a interview, with Will of the Labkids. Being around creative people all day is an incredible Job.
