Here is what some of the regional press had to say about Pawtooth:
"Ringbeat sounds like Siouxsie Sioux kidnapped The Go-Gos and tossed them in the Stooges Funhouse while Dick Dale dials in from outer space." (Chris Haire - Charleston City Paper, Charleston, SC)
"In one sentence: they present the kind of music that you can close your eyes and get lost in." (Shaquana Suggs - Hennon Observer, Winston-Salem, NC)
"Fronted by Penelope Zing, the band references some of the best of '80s and '90s regional rock, while bringing wholly original songs to the stage. ... Their raw energy is palpable, as is their practiced polish. They command the stage with self-possessed swagger, yet the quartet doesn't seem to take itself too seriously. ... the band's men provide a steady vocal canvas for Zing's lyrical prowess. She hits some electric notes at the top of her register, though most songs are sung low and gutsy, with something akin to a gleeful rage." (Alli Marshall - Mountain Xpress, Asheville, NC)
Bromelia Aerial Dance Collective is named after the plant family Bromeliaceae, which includes Spanish Moss and Pineapple. Many plants from this family are able to take their food and water directly from the air.
