Lois
(United States) Olympia

Biography

I know she was born and raised in Pheonix, and came up to Olympia to go to Evergreen State College in 1981. She was in a number of small bands that never released anything, like the Lumihoops, Zebras, and the Cradle Robbers (with Rebecca Gates!). She formed Courtney Love with Pat Maley and put out a couple 7"s. They played their last show at the International Pop Underground in 1991. Since then she has gone by "Lois" or "The Lois". She's had a number of different people play in "The Lois", but has seemed to have settled on Heather Dunn, ex-Tiger Trap. She recently moved back to Oly from Washington DC.
