Fever Dolls is a multimedia varietal experience drawing on the hottest and freshest sounds in modern sensory consumption…all in stereo. A new kind of variety hour, one that lasts twenty-four hours a day & seven days a week. Part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart, Fever Dolls is still the funniest and freshest show in Burlington, Vermont!
Clever Girls is a band formed in and based out of Burlington, Vermont. Robert Slater’s deft ability to interpret rhythm alongside bassist, Tobias Sullivan are invaluable, while Diane Jean’s soulful voice and raw, personal songwriting abilities combined with Holt’s effortless guitar work have created a recipe for what Redline Roots have called a “delicate balance” between soft and vulnerable, or a rock and roll raucous. On March 7th, 2017, they released their debut EP which you can stream exclusively on Bandcamp. The record has been described as heartbreaking; a “grungy collection of attitude and emotion that hits hard…but hits so damn good.
Wild Leek River
Wild Leek River started in Burlington Vermont in 2017. Honing their chops at the local honky-tonk Tuesday, Wild Leek River began by playing country classics popularized by outlaw legends such as Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. It wasn’t long before singer, Ian Stonerook started to insert his own material and the band took a sharp turn towards roots-rock’n’roll. A heavy blues influence also found its way into the sound. This isn’t surprising considering that half of the founding members (Ian Stonerook and Gavin Greenewalt) originally met through playing in the Burlington stoner-metal band, Acid Roach. As Wild Leek River prepares to record their first album they continue to explore the connections between country, blues, and rock’n’roll.
