DDGs @ T5, October 2012 (more by Gretchen Robinette)

Dum Dum Girls' third long-player, Too True, is out next week (1/28) on Sub Pop and if you liked "Lost Boys and Girls Club" and "Rimbaud Eyes" you can now give the whole thing a spin via NPR. While it was made with usual suspects Richard Gottehrer and Ravonettes' Sune Rose Wagner, the new record is defintely a little different for DDGs, with a host of UK influences coloring the band's sound. It's also got "In the Wake of You," the most unabashed pop creation Dee Dee has ever written.

The band -- with new third guitarist who will be the first male Dum Dum Girl (not counting Mike Sniper and Brandon Welchez who played at DDGs live debut at Woodist fest) -- will be in NYC next Thursday (1/30) for a sold-out record release show at Mercury Lounge. They'll then be back when their tour with Blouse stops for two shows: March 25 at Bowery Ballroom and March 26 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for those are still available.

Remember when the Dum Dum Girls wore white and changed the game?

How the Pulitzer escaped BV for that piece of journalism I'll never understand.

Bahahaha. I never saw that one about them wearing WHITE. ZOMG. Best. Title. Ever! They're still super cute, and the stockings they wear always add to the sax appeal. However, for my money, that show was all about Widowspeak. Anyway ... carry on.

i dont like this band much, but i once played a show with them and saw a guy trying to have a conversation with the drummer, i forget the exact words, but he pretty much said "you're a really good drummer (for a girl)" and she shut him down real quick with "YES, BECAUSE I'M A PROFESSIONAL DRUMMER" and moved on. I loved it.
