Things The Bottom Dwellers have been up to and other things you’d probably like to know.
Myles Cochrane, writing for the Times-Standard out of Eureka, asked us a few questions about our favorite gig in Phillipsville and our plans for the immediate future.Tweet
Loreen owns the Riverwood Inn in Phillipsville. Shes not hot about Cal-Trans’ building a new road through the old growth forrest there (neither are we). And it’s best not to mess with Loreen.Tweet
CM Wilcox had some nice things to say about us at the bottom of his Billy Joe Shaver review of our recent show at the Palms Playhouse in Winters.Tweet
Marie Chapman covers the Capay Organic Farm Tours for Davis Life Magazine. We played this event in April and had a blast—as is apparent from the photos here.
This is a great family friendly event. Bring a picnic, ride a tractor, dance to some music all in the picturesque Capay Valley.
Hi folks, we’ve officially awoken from our winter hibernation, and are ready to kick things back into gear. We played our first show of 2010 last night and debuted a few new songs. We’re working on our plan for the year and have some good ideas in the works.Tweet
Our PA (or public address system, as we lovingly refer to it) caught fire recently. Yeah, huge amounts of billowing, electric smelling smoke poured from its every orifice one evening before a rehearsal. Repair? Replace? Upgrade? Those are the questions. How do you want to hear the Bottom Dwellers?Tweet
You know what? Radio doesn’t actually suck. We have three great stations in the Sacramento valley that play fantastic independent music or all types, including plenty of Bottom Dwellers. KDVS, KVMR, and KXJZ to name names. Start tuning in and find new music.Tweet
Obama trumps McCain in our tip jar shootout last Wednesday at the Davis Farmers Market.Tweet

Think I Need A Drink has been featured as the Sacramento Single for August 11th, 2008 on the Sacramento Bee and at SacBee.com.Tweet
You may have noticed that we have a new website. If you hadn’t, well, we do. We hope the particulars will be fairly obvious to most of you, but it may be worth while to call attention to a few of the changes since many of you use the site for different reasons.Tweet
It’s finally here! Our brand new album, “Think I Need A Drink” is now available for purchase at your local internet retailers.Tweet
Just because the propane hasnt been flowing through the veins of the Bottom Dwellers tour van, doesnt mean we havent been working our keisters off. In fact, we have. On a new record, specifically.Tweet
Whos a CD Baby Editors pick?
Indeed, ladies and gentlemen, if youre into that classic Bakersfield sound, wed be remiss in not telling you to give the Bottom Dwellers a try. Go ahead, its okay. If we didnt think so, we wouldnt be doing it.
[UPDATE] Well, we were finally replaced. But our buddies Stars And Garters are in there now! Shit howdy. Great new record, boys.Tweet
Wednesday night we were awarded a Sammies Readers Choice Award for Outstanding Country/Bluegrass Band at the Sacramento Area Music Awards.Tweet
For those of you who werent able to attend the Sammies Country/Bluegrass showcase the other week, Its pichers! Its almost like you were there, only quieter.Tweet
You really do like us! The Bottom Dwellers have been nominated for the 2007 Sammies, and were all atwitter with delight.

We received the following email from W.Bradley Pope, Professional Window Installer/Musician:
Dwight Yokam,Steve Earl,and Jack Ingram suggested to us that the lost highway goes in many directions. You guys prove it. Welcome to the lunatic fringe of country music.Tweet
One of the lesser known facts about the Bottom Dwellers, is that our drummer brews beer. And not just any beer, mind you. He brews exceptionally great beer. Beer that you would most readily choose in place of anything on the shelf at your local boutique grocery. And now theres proof!Tweet
