Lola… Black… on the streets Lola means strong woman usually of Spanish decent. From the alleys, and stages of Denver Colorado , Lola Black is an alchemist of punk, metal, melodic riffs, and attitude! The instant Lola walks out on stage you begin to understand that sugar, spice and everything nice were never things she was made of. Her 5’4” Spanish frame is all titt’s, tatt’s and everything Black. An undeniable presence on stage that leaves most men quoting the last few lines of an erectile dysfunction add, and most women questioning which band member of the 5 they’d rather go home with!
This blend of focused chaos was formed in August of 2008. Since their arrival upon the Denver music scene, Lola Black has become THE band in Colorado . Numerous features, and write ups in Colorado Music Buzz, Westword, Denver Post and Reviews in national publications like Hollywood Music Magazine. Winner of “Best punk Band” in 2010, Lola and company are now exploring a darker shade of black with the Release of DIA DE LOS BORRACHOS’. The release of this cd in Jan 2012 had one of the country’s signature Active Rock Stations (106.7 KBPI) add Borracho’s into regular rotation! Something national acts struggle to accomplish over months, a local band did in weeks! Make No Mistake about Lola Black, this is a band about to erupt. The bottled fury called Black has a bold raw sound, filled with seasoned lyrics of passion, life, pursuit of a party and take no shit attitude! LOVE HER or HATE THEM, Lola Black is a band you will NEVER forget.
