CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- With flaming red hair, an impressive collection of tattoos and a quirky early '60s pop sound that conjures up everything from Wanda Jackson to The Ronettes, Dominique Pruitt could turn out to be the indie music answer to Katy Perry.
Stranger things have happened, and Pruitt probably wouldn't complain.
The fabulously fun-loving singer makes her debut appearance on "Mountain Stage" this Sunday in a show that also includes Brett Dennan and Joy Kills Sorrow.
The gazz spoke with Pruitt about coming east from California, her love affair with tattoos and why she's probably not going to join a roller derby league.
Q: Is this your first trip to West Virginia, and if so, any expectations?
A: It is, and I'm very excited. I have no expectations. Maybe get a tattoo. Probably not. I'm just really looking forward to being on the show, and I like to travel. It's a pretty exciting time for me.
Q: Let's talk about your tattoos. I watched a couple of your videos on YouTube and saw some tattoos in one and not as many in another. How many do you have?
