The Nightgowns are a four-piece electronic indie rock band based out of Tacoma, Washington, with members Trevor Dickson (Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals), Cody Jones (Keyboard, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals), Kyle Brunette (Bass, Guitar, Keyboard), and B.J. Robertson (Drums). Voted "best band" in Tacoma in 2007, and 2009[1] The Nightgowns music is a nice mix of mostly uplifting, if occasionally moody, electropop, and is seemingly heavily influenced by '80s pop.[2] The band's first album experienced heavy airplay on college and independent radio, especially on Seattle station KEXP.[3]

The Nightgowns formerly "The Elephants" (2005–2008) included member Jason Freet now of "The Drug Purse."[4] After Freet they added members B.J. Robertson and Kyle Brunette, who is also the singer and guitarist of Tacoma rock group Friskey. [5]

In 2009, The Nightgowns played alongside Frank Black's Grand Duchy.[6]
