The Beat Dolls

The Beat Dolls are a rocking ska/punk trio from Austin, Texas. Front by singer/guitarist Angie, the band also features Barry on bass and Mike on drums. With Angie writing the majority of the lyrics, the Beat Dolls belt out three-minute pop-punk rock numbers filled with wit, sarcasm, humor, and just a touch of madness. We think the band’s garage-punk vibe is well-represented in this video for “Walking Dead.”
