If David Lynch ever makes a movie starring Tom Waits & Snoop Dogg, Kassy Key & the Raindoggs would have to be on the soundtrack.
Kassy Key & the Raindoggs rose from the ashes of a failed Tom Waits tribute band. The Dogg’s are the quintessential “indie band” from Austin TX. They produce their own music as well as their own music videos. (The Raindoggs: Official Music Videos) and recently started producing videos for other bands around town (Music Videos by Raindogg) as well as a monthly Cabaret at the Spider House Ballroom.
