The Nightgowns are a pop group from Tacoma, WA, originally founded in 2005 as "The Elephants" by Trevor Dickson, Cody Jones, and Jason Freet. Infamous for their unpredictable and engaging live shows, their antics and memorable songs quickly made their hometown performances packed events, and won them a loyal following in Seattle and throughout the rest of the NW as well. With the departure of Freet in '06, the remaining members added drummer BJ Robertson and multi-instrumentalist Kyle Brunette and continued to perform, write, and record new material. The sound and songs evolved, becoming more dense and contemplative, and after a name change The Nightgowns' debut full-length "Sing Something" was released in June '09, receiving favorable reviews and considerable college and independent radio airplay. In 2009 the group was voted Tacoma's "best band" for the third time in four years in an annual readers poll run by South Puget Sound arts and culture publication The Weekly Volcano. After a succession of west coast performances and a brief hiatus The Nightgowns are currently hard at work finishing an EP for release in spring 2011.
