Dum Dum Girls @ MHOW 3/26/2013
Dum Dum Girls

Dum Dum Girls' tour with Blouse rolled through NYC, making sold-out stops at Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday (3/25) and Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (3/26). Pictures from MHOW are in this post. Against a neon blue heart, Dee Dee and the rest of the gang rattled through an hour set drawn from all their records (including this year's Too True), plus their cover of Pale Saints "Sight of You." Setlist is in this post.

Blouse was a well matched opener, their agreeably gloomy pop brightened by psychedelic, oilpaint-esque projections. Their second album, Imperium, has been a grower for me and I was glad to finally get to see them play those songs live. Good set. The night started early with Young Boys whose singer has definitely watched live footage of The Cramps and The Birthday Party. Pics from their sets, and more from Dum Dum Girls, below.
