Dum Dum Girls

Dum Dum Girls (#40 on Rough Trade's favorite albums of 2011) may have their New Year's planned in Australia, but not before the band hits a very-recently-announced show at Brooklyn Bowl on December 1st with DIVE and Xray Eyeballs. The band will also play Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that night (actually technically earlier that day). Tickets are still available OR you can roll the dice and try to win a MEGA prize pack featuring "EIGHT free tickets and two hours of free bowling & shoes for up to 8 people!". Details on how you can enter to win are below.

Maybe Dee Dee is sticking around town too, because the Dum Dum Girl is also scheduled to bless Brooklyn Bowl with a DJ set on 12/17 as part of a reunion show for Stylofone (mems Amazing Baby, MGMT and Standing Nudes). Tickets are still available. She is also playing solo acoustic at Glasslands that same night along with an acoustic Crocodiles set. Tickets are on sale.

In related "news" a video below shows Dee Dee gushing about The Cure's great Disintegration. The Cure did NOT play that LP at Beacon Theater as part of their three night stay over the weekend. They instead focused on earlier material. The setlist from their third Beacon Theater show and all DDG tour dates and some videos and the contest below...
