Skating Polly bring "The Make It All Show" to Europe this month04-09-2018
There's a difficult to describe, yet timeless quality to certain songs that transcends genre or era. It's something that you can't fake or contrive and it's what lies at the core of Skating Polly's music.
The multi instrumentalist duo of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse started their band in Oklahoma in 2009. The achieved instant acclaim from underground music icons like X's Exene Cervenka and Beat Happening's Calvin Johnson. After the release of 2016's The Big Fit, Veruca Salt's co-frontwomen Louise Post and Nina Gordon reached out and said they wanted to write with the band. What started as a writing session ultimately became 2017’s New Trick EP. Now armed with a third member -Kelli’s brother - the trio have just released a new full length, The Make It All Show.
The album is the culmination of a very busy year in which the band played over 100 shows, performed at major festivals like Riot Fest & The Capitol Hill Block Party, toured Europe with Kate Nash and reunited with Cervenka for two separate legs of X’s 40th anniversary tour.
Now almost a year ago the band was in Europe and this month the trio is back for a good amount of dates. This weekend they'll start their tour in Groningen's famous Vera club:
