What? The Dodos

San Franciscan duo The Dodos wowed people with their 2008 UK debut ‘Visiter’. You may recognise their song ‘Undeclared’ from the Juno movie soundtrack. They play uplifting songs with powerful finger picking acoustic guitar and steady, driving percussion from drums, foot tambourines, hand claps and whatever else they can lay their digits on. Front man Meric Long’s sweet vocals are a perfect accompaniment to the tunes and his studies in West African drumming have had a noticeable influence on The Dodos’ music.

For Fans Of: Animal Collective, Akron/Family, Department Of Eagles.

When? Thursday, Sep 3rd.

Where? Bush Hall, Shepherds Bush.

How Much? £10

What? Gang Gang Dance

I’m very excited about this one! This is rescheduled from their original February date which they had to pull out of after all of their expensive gear caught fire while left in an Amsterdam venue over night. Tough luck but they’re back to hypnotise us with their pulsating middle eastern rhythms, dub, grime, off kilter dance beats and whatever else they fancy. Their album St. Dymphna was one of the best of 2008. Oh and they’re from Brooklyn and they count TV On The Radio, Hot Chip and Klaxons amongst their fans in case you weren’t sure of their credentials! They are pretty full on though so listen before you buy!

For Fans Of: UNKLE, TV On The Radio, Fuck Buttons, Telepathe.

When? Monday, June 1st.

Where? Dingwalls, Camden.

How Much? £11.50
