The Fame Riot

Locals Only Artist of the Month: July


The Fame Riot is the brainchild of two brothers and multi-instrumentalists: Liz Scarlett & Shazam “Teatime” Watkins, who are from Tacoma, WA. The Fame Riot has spent the last few years perfecting their gumbo of musical styles, drawing influence from the last four decades of pop, electronic, dance, classic rock and everything in-between.

The Fame Riot gigs are a celebration of sound, style and energy, pulling crowds diverse in age, sexuality and dress but nonetheless united under a single groove. “We describe our music as nasty beats with truthful melodies,” says Shazam.
