Dum Dum Girls @ Woodsist Fest - July 4, 2009 (bajapuntos)
Dum Dum Girls

The two-day Woodsist & Captured Tracks Festival happened in Brooklyn on Friday (7/3) and Saturday (7/4). Both days were supposed to take place at 979 Broadway Backyard, but Friday was moved to the very hot Market Hotel due to the threat of rain. Pictures of both days coming soon, but first here is video Bill took on Saturday during the first-ever performance by Dum Dum Girls.

Dum Dum Girls is really just one person - Dee Dee.... aka Kristin Gundred from Grand Ole Party who is married to Brandon Welchez of Crocodiles who she released a duet with (video below) and who was one of the members of the Dum Dum Girls band at Woodsist. The other two members of the band were Mike Sniper of Blank Dogs and Frankie Rose of Crystal Stilts (and a former Vivian Girl)...

dum dum girls blew me away, her voice and 'moves' were hypnotizing

Impossible to explain how shitty Dum Dum girls were. Worst band of the day. Made the whole even seem very "scene."

The Fest was pretty neatly divided between "scene" bands on the first day and "good" bands on the second day (with the exception of Vivian and Dum Dum Girls on the second day). Better to keep the scene bands on the first day.

though I know you think you're making a hilarious joke, referencing some earlier blog nerd comment bullshit, when a guy who didn't even go to some show insisted that he just knew it couldn't have been any good...

the truth is the sound was excellent and the mixes were almost flawless all day. That venue is just a strangely great place for putting on rock shows.

Aside from the venue being 40 times more pleasant, I thought day 2 bands were way better.

Day 1: Gutsies, Mayfair Set, Gary War, Blank Dogs

Day 2: Woods, The Beets, Brilliant Colors, Dum Dum Girls, Beach Fossils, The Oh Sees, Vivian Girls

Most disappointing: Psychedelic Horseshit

The name Dum Dum Girls is an obvious cop from Iggy's great song "Dum Dum Boys" (from The Idiot). The guys and gals associated with Crocodiles certainly have all the right musical influences.

For your consideration...

SCENE:
Vivian Girls
Crystal Stilts
Blank Dogs
Kurt Vile
Mayfair Set
Dum Dum Girls

GOOD:
Woods
Tyvek (didn't play)
Real Estate
Beets
Ganglians

"Hey Sis" sounds very Elastica, which is fine, since Elastica ceased being Elastica some time ago.

can you be both scene and good? Or does good automatically mean you are not in the scene and vice versa?

No love for the Fresh and Onlys? Both sets on Saturday were great.

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2009 1:36 PM

Fresh & Onlys belong in the good column. Woods are in the scene, but they are insanely good, so it's possible just a very rare occurrence. Everyone else (Vivian/Stilts/etc.) just wears scene clothes and has complex haircuts and costumes and basically plays the same variation on the most done-to-death post-punk jam you've ever heard in your life over and over and over again.

so disappointed that Tyvek didnt play

Posted by Nadia | July 6, 2009 3:28 PM

There's no division between "scene" bands and "real" bands.

If you were at this show, you'd see they're all friends. They all make music together, tour together, put out records on the same label and collaborate.

Anytime one of these bands is in another's town, they play together.

This competitive atmpsphere is created by moronic internet trolls.

If the music doesn't suit you, go listen to something else, because we're all having a good time.

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2009 3:35 PM

@3:38 These bands might all be friends and that's just dandy but it doesn't mean there's no way to discern quality from one band to another. Vivian Girls, Stilts, Dum Dum Girls, Mayfair Set are all retreading the same post-JAMC/post-Joy Division roll call of boring as fuck influences with little flourishes here and there and making everyone fall asleep. Bands like Real Estate, Woods, and Beets are making some seriously inspired tossed off pop jams that kick fucking ass. Dum Dum Girls and Mayfair Set are, in particular, the definition of "vanity projects" - basically just there so that guitar d00ds can feel good about letting whatever flavor of the week they're fucking have her own special "project" that they can bring hype/validity to by showing up with their special haircut and outfit.

Were people really that into Woods' set? I thought they sounded pretty bad really and the jams weren't very convincing. Some good songs sure, but the performance didn't seem to come close to, say, the Fresh and Onlys who I thought were much more entertaining.

I reject this false dichotomy between Scene and Good.

Also saying Kurt Vile is scene = you have no fucking idea what you're talking about.

And how has NO ONE mentioned Thee Oh Sees slaying Saturday night. All in all brilliant pick to headline the final night. Also great = Woods, Real Estate, the Beets, Kurt Vile, Fresh & Onlys, Ganglians, Casiotone from fri MH show, Babies late show.

Posted by KingTreehouse | July 7, 2009 12:46 AM

@11:52 : completely agree with you. my hopes were flushed down the toilet once they went into their pointless, set-long, electronic-noise jam. Very lame.

Show highlights for me were mayfair set, cause co-motion, dum dum girls, the beets, brilliant colors, viv girls, and last, but certainly not least: Thee Oh Sees. They sure ended the fest with a firework-like bang.

and thank god someone represented philly at this fest ... yey, Kurt Vile!

Man, no one reads two-day old comments on BV, but regarding scene v. good @ 1:19 yesterday...

I'd say Crystal Stilts were "good" in mid-2008 and migrated over to "scene" over the last year. I also think the Dum Dum Girls are good - at least Dee Dee can sing! Blank Dogs, also good IMO, don't sound like the rest the bands, at least not recorded. Real Estate, on the other hand, totally scene.

The whole thing was very "scene" and all the bands could be so-called. It's not just a collective, it's a clique, and they've got some brilliant talent, but they've also managed to just paint themselves as universally hip. I've got no grudge, most of the folks I know from that crowd are plenty nice and have good taste, so if they coast off of cool points, good for them. But it is worthwhile for the rest of us to try to sift out what's musically interesting (Woods) from what's just blindly touted (Vivian Girls).

Real shame about Tyvek, they are one of the best.

Posted by Radio Flyer | July 7, 2009 12:43 PM

@12:43

I'm the scene/good guy and I appreciate your comment. I was at Day Two and had a great time and I think a lot of the bands are really great but they are not all universally good and the worst ones are sort of the most hyped (until recently, maybe). I don't know why Real Estate are scene, but they do have Matt M. (Ducktails/Predator Vision) in them and that might make them scene (Matt M. is very scene and kind of an asshole, from what I gather even though I will admit I think Ducktails is pretty decent overall). Tyvek is universally beloved, I think...

hey 1:15, ask anyone who books shows, 99% of all bands can't get a show in New York. The competition is fierce and the scene is only good because a lot of talented people sort through the crap well and find the good shit buried under the torrent of garbage bands (like the band I'm sure you're in for instance.)

Tyvek got mildly popular because that Air Conditioner single is awesome and because they work hard and have some other good tunes. They were also in an MTV piece and are liked by people who are in bands that were already getting popular.

Call it nepotism or call it talented people giving a leg up to new bands that they get exposed to and like... doesn't matter how you paint it the Brooklyn scene is really great right now. Appreciate it while you can and quit your bitching.

It's a wide open community and you could be involved yourself, if only you could get that chip off your shoulder and drop the resentment and shitty vibes.

@1:26,

This is based on my (admittedly limited) experiences observing the recent career of the Crystal Stilts: http://radioflyerreview.blogspot.com/2009/03/live-crystal-stilts-blank-dogs-women.html (see bulleted timeline near the end)

To me, the difference has been what appears to me as sense of entitlement and consequent laziness. Plus the lack of any new musical ideas since their Woodsist EP. Though, I guess that wasn't that long ago, so we'll see...

It was the 20 minute set thing that really bummed me out. Say what you will, if a bunch of kids are willing to trek to a venue and shell out $10 and give up an evening of their life, you should put on a show. Especially in some place like Austria, where kids really do have to make an effort to expose themselves to indie music.

This is bizarre.... been really loving Dum Dum Girls and stumbled upon Ol Grand Party or whatever it is they're called out of curiosity. It might be the worst pile of shit I've ever heard! It's SO bad that it sounds like they're kidding around. How could someone consciously write music like that and release it to the world? Those terrible lyrics and the over the top cock-rock vocals...it's hard to believe that it's the same person which leads me to wonder what the intentions behind this project really are. Is it to cash in on the crop of lo-fi that is so beloved by the Pitchfork crowd? Or did this chick generally have an epiphany and come out of her shell? All I have to say is, if anyone else came from an act like this and tried to launch something like Dum Dum Girls it would be dismissed and shat upon. Take that as you will.

oh radio flyer has got a complaint?

what a surprise.

that blogger is a real bitch who shits on everything. If (s)he had insightful things to say, maybe you could respect the bad attitude. Usually it's just this or that is "terrible."

Dum Dum Girls are a tad bit darker then their contemporaries anyway I don't like their sound.

Too much negativity in their tracks. I like music a little more cheerful. And we live in a world so very sad, that I was missing now.
