Home Town Girl
2 piece heavy punk (Baltimore)
Reese McHenry (Chapel Hill)
In 2005 McHenry started the seminal garage-rock blues-band The Dirty Little Heaters, beginning as a duo with Melissa Thomas, and in 2007, brought on Rob Walsh (Spinns) and Dave Perry (Jett Rink). Sidetracked by a near fatal stroke and Pulmonary Edema, the decision to sever the faulty part of her heart and install a pacemaker has put her back on track to full time rock and roll. In 2014 she teamed up with Bob Wall (Erie Choir), Dave Perry, Ed Hurt, and Chuck Garrison (Superchunk) to release “Tourist” as The Second Wife. In July 2017 she released the acclaimed garage-rock “Bad Girl” with Spider Bags, a collaboration that marks McHenry’s turn from the band life to her status as a rock icon who can join any backing band and make something great. Most recently, her duo Reese McHenry & The Fox released their highly anticipated first EP, High Comma, a 4-song 45 vinyl record.
Her songs defy genre and, though one could still categorize then as straight-shooting “rock,” the real thread connecting these songs is a wry brand of humor mixed with an ability to catch a hook at just the right moment. McHenry’s true signature, of course, is her emotive blues voice that can change at any moment from soft sweetness to a torrential downpour.
Playing a style we call Macabre or Morbid Rock DerPot includes Dylan Wood on lead guitar, Jordan Miller on bass/lead vocals, and Montez Drayton on drums. With screeching guitar, a thunderous rhythm section, and wailing vocals, we aim to bring a great show”
