PWR BTTM Joins Pity Sex, The Dresden Dolls On Summer Tour Dates

PWR BTTM, the New York-based queer punk band consisting of Ben Hopkins and Liv Bruce, are currently on tour with Ra Ra Riot, and will join Pity Sex (Run For Cover) and Petal on a full US tour this summer. Their high energy performances — and memorable stage banter — earned rave reviews at SXSW and the Savannah Stopover Festival. PWR BTTM will also support The Dresden Dolls on two select shows in Boston, MA and Brooklyn, NY in August.

Earlier this year, PWR BTTM traveled to the NPR offices in Washington, DC to film a Tiny Desk Session. “Ben Hopkins (in red, fingernails included) and Liv Bruce swap roles as singers, guitarists, drummers and storytellers, each trying to playfully one-up the other.,” explains NPR’s Bob Boilen. “It’s a show that might have worn thin if the songs weren’t so much damn fun. Instead, they’re likely to stay with you as long as the glitter has stayed in my clothes and carpet fibers.” Watch PWR BTTM’s Tiny Desk below.
