The Dodos To Play GAMH, Amoeba, Independent

Local duo The Dodos have been receiving quite a bit of national hype at the moment, so if you haven't heard the band, this may be a good chance to get your fill. The band will be playing three shows in the city over the next three months in support of their new Record, Visiter. The first will be an opening slot for Les Savy Fav on April 27th at the GAMH, the second is a free show at Amoeba (Haight Street) on May 14th, and the third is a headlining show at The Independent on June 19th.

We here at H.A.D. have been listening to the new record since we got it off of eMusic last week, and we're enjoying it quite a bit. It's a nice dose of fuzzed out folk, and Meric Long's vocals are definitely top notch. We are a bit curious as to how the definitely multi-layered approach to the band's material comes across live, but I guess that's why we'll have to go and see, eh?

The Dodos are better live than on record, but it's also different things that make them great in each case. You're in for a treat if you haven't seen them yet.
