Zookraught @ Belltown Bloom

When Rachel Couch, Angela Heileson and Ivy Merrell started The French Tips at the end of 2016, their goal was to learn a few covers to channel their femme fueled rage. What followed was their debut record of crunchy garage rock bangers It’s The Tips. After taking off 2020 to focus on existential angst, they returned to the studio in January. Set to release in 2022, their sophomore album All The Rage carries the torch of dance infused hella riffs that propelled their first record to moderate regional esteem.

Zookraught is a 3-piece dance/punk band from Seattle. With influence from punk, jazz, metal, and over a decade of experience playing music in different bands, Zookraught was born. Debut EP “Like A Rotten Zucchini’ was released on May 20th, 2022. They will be releasing a new EP in August 2023. Founded by Baylee Harper (drums and vox) and Stephanie Jones (bass and vox) they later added Sam Frederick (guitar and vox). Often appearing with special guests like Sam Morrison (sax) who played on “Like A Rotten Zucchini” you never really know what you’ll get at a Zook show! “Who’s that gooey band?” Some fan at the last Zookraught show
