It was just a monstrously great year for New London's Suicide Dolls - and good for them. They released the superb "Prayers in Parking Lots" album in June; won Best New Act at the New England Music Awards in Boston; won Best Connecticut Rock Band at the Connecticut Music Awards in Hartford; and won Album of the Year and Best Alternative Song at New London's Whalie Awards.
And that's just the tip of the Dollsian iceberg!
In celebration, they're playing an end-of-year show Saturday in New London's Oasis Pub. Included in the fun are two excellent Boston bands: New Highway Hymnal and Velah.
