From their 1999 inception, Surrender Dorothy, a five-piece band from Phoenix, gathered a loyal following. The group performed at the final Lilith Fair music festival in the summer of 1999. Sadly, the band broke up, after a short but successful run, in 2001. Members of the band pursued other projects but stayed in touch. After seven years, Surrender Dorothy reunited for a performance in October 2008. Ever since, they have occassionally been playing shows. Here they are in 2010, submitting to Lilith Fair again for an opening slot in Phoenix. Surrender Dorothy's music presents a collection of pop songs, well-written lyrics and their signature turns of phrase. The songs are at times confident and playful, at times vulnerable, but always powerful.
