Meric Long of The Dodos
The New Gay: When did you first realize you were straight?The Dodos (Frenchkiss) are on tour with Ruby Suns (Sub Pop), and last night (10/13) they played their first of two NYC shows together. It was at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tonight (10/14) happens at Bowery Ballroom.
Logan Kroeber of The Dodos: In highschool after I broke up with my third boyfriend I realized I was fooling myself just going with the norm of homosexuality. I decided then and there to go against the grain and face the shame of dating chicks.
TNG: What is your least favorite stereotype about straight people?
LK: That the sexual acts I perform are not also condemned in the Bible. I can sin too even if I'm not gay!
The Ruby Suns played a few new songs from their album that's coming out early next year. The Dodos setlist included much material from their album that came out this year. Highlights included the encore and a song they played all in the dark with LED's on Meric's fingers and on the xylophone mallets. You can see it in one of the pictures which are continued below....
