Dum Dum Girls in Toronto for NXNE

Dum Dum Girls are following the He Gets Me High EP which was released earlier this year with their second full length Only In Dreams. As opposed to their first full length, I Will Be, which was recorded at home, the new album was done in Josh Homme's (QOTSA) Pink Duck Studios with Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, Go-Go's) and Sune Rose Wager of The Raveonettes. The album drops September 27 via Sub Pop.

They'll go on an international tour in support of the album. That tour hits Bowery Ballroom on October 21 and Maxwell's on October 24. Both shows are opened by Crocodiles and Royal Baths. Colleen Green opens up some other dates on the tour too. Ticket info is not available yet but check ticketmaster for the Bowery show and ticketfly for Maxwell's.

Like Cults, Dum Dum Girls recently paid a visit to Toronto for the NXNE fest. A few more pictures from their set there and all tour dates and the new album tracklist, below...

the singer should hang out with early '00s jim o'rourke. he was always seen around lower manhattan wearing those damn striped pants, and she seems to always been seen wearing those damn, albeit totally sexy, striped stockings.

sadly I think Jim O'Rourke exiled himself to Japan.

Its interesting to see the older Gastr Del sol video footage of Jim O'Rourke compared to when he played in S.Y. because he looks completely different.

Go back and read O'Rourke's writing in Your Flesh, if you can find copies. Damned good writer, that guy.
