Dom @ Governors Island (more by Chris La Putt)

If you haven't heard, Dom, the ginger-fronted guys from Worcester, Mass., recently signed a deal to release an EP on Virgin/EMI label Astralwerks (release date TBA). The band will be opening for Ratatat at Terminal 5 on October 8th and 9th (Bobby Birdman also play). Both of those are sold out, but there are other chances to catch the band.

In addition to those, Dom has a CMJ show at Bowery Ballroom set for October 23rd. That's the same CMJ show that Neon Indian is playing, now with venue revealed. The killer "VFW Group Presents" CMJ bill also includes Wild Nothing, Lower Dens, Lia Ices, Fake Problems, Lord Huron and The Static Jacks. Tickets go on sale Thursday at noon.

And in addition to those gigs, Dom headliners a pre-Halloween (Mischief Night) show at 171 Lombardy (502 Varick Ave @ Lombardy St), along with Smith Westerns, Yellow Fever, Total Slacker and Sweet Bulbs. That's one night after Neon Indian plays Brooklyn Bowl.

Dom, Wild Nothing and Lower Dens are all also on board for a Stereogum CMJ party happening at Santos Party House on October 20th. And I guess I might as well point out that Dom, Wild Nothing and Lower Dens are all booked for TBA BrooklynVegan parties happening during CMJ too. Stay tuned for more details.

Dale Einhardt Jr. Jr. plays that Stereogum party too. It's one of at least six upcoming NYC shows for that band including one with Nada Surf at Mercury Lounge.

When people talk about vacuous, no-talent bands that ride trends and connections to exposure and record deals, they are basically talking about this band. A-fucking-bysmal.

Of course we know who "Dom" is. He's been writing music
since early 2009. Glad to see all of his dues is finally paying off.

Twenty-two-year-old musician Dom is the leader of Worcester, Massachussets pop-rock trio Dom. Dom has a last name, but he will not reveal it because he owes "a lot of money." Which sounds sort of ridiculous. But Dom is ridiculous-- in the best way possible.

He has dreams of making artful pornography and playing video games with Lil Wayne. He writes hockey stadium anthems about his cat. He does not give a shit, and it's awesome.

Frat house hummus stand. Kick a Hacky Sack & slip me a sugar stick & I think I'm good. Dom DeLuise, to the max, kid!

His father got him the Virgin/Astralwerks deal since he
manages that band Creed. Look it up.

Dom is Incredible. He shits actual mints! I'm not even kidding! His farts smell like puffs of Swiss Miss Cocoa! He going to be the next Animal Collective, Neon Indian or some other over-rated Twat!

Dom's dad does not manage anyone LOL. Dom's a legend, know it live it and love it.

1:10 - dude, my friend knows his father & is in "the business".
What do you know, unless you're the "Dom" himself.

I think it's Dom's Uncle that you are referring to... but He wasn't the Manager for Creed, He was a Roadie for Chumbawamba. Get your facts straight!

Wait...did Chumbawamba really have a hit of the moment song centered around taking a piss? just checking.

Actually, all of you have it wrong. DOM's father is the manager of the Hummus Queens and therefore has much access to the inner-workings of the Brooklyn music scene. DOM also gets free admission to the 7am market hotel shows, and VIP access to the hummus trough.

"Don" lived a good life. He was a pioneer of the new frontier of the generation X. Long live the "Don"!
