Yay, you’re back! Welcome to BTRtoday’s Discovery Corner podcast brought to you by, Levi’s.
Tattted, buckled, and booted-the psych-rock group is comprised of Bonnie Bloomgarden (lead vocals/guitar), Nicole “Pickle” Smith (bass/vocals), Laura “the Kid” Kelsey (drum/vocals), and Larry Schemel (lead guitar). They lurk in the shadows of sunny L.A and aren’t afraid of anything.

Bloomgarden and Schemel met years ago and just clicked, they formed Death Valley Girls in 2013, met the Kid and Pickle, and everything fell into place—it’s like the cosmos aligned them perfectly to add their touch to the rock’n’roll world.
As a band heavily influenced by the ‘60’s and ‘70’s sexual revolution and strong minded and fierce women, their look and style obviously reflect that. Their live stage attire usually includes a groovy and colorful ‘60’s patterned mini-dress, a black deep-v laced up shirt, or kick-ass over the knee leather boots.

So really, if Quentin Tarantino ever decides to go back to his roots of horror-art, with his love for beautiful, yet blood soaked characters, he should start by getting the babes (and hunk) of Death Valley Girls to be his leading roles.
