Dum Dum Girls in San Francisco last night - 6/19/2014
It may feel pasty outside now, and it's going to be be even more "pastie" this Saturday in Brooklyn thanks to the annual Coney Island, pastie-filled Mermaid Parade! Look out for the de Blasios at the beach-side, burlesque extravaganza.
From there, hop on the F to Park Slope because the pastie-loving Dum Dum Girls play what is probably their biggest NYC show yet, a headlining appearance in Prospect Park as part of the free Celebrate Brooklyn summer concert series. Hospitality and TEEN round out the all-female-fronted, indie rock bill on the stage where the National just played three nights in a row. This is a great bill of music AND FREE.
That said, Celebrate Brooklyn is a family friendly environment, so we bet that the Dum Dums will go with a more conservative version of their outfits (we love them no matter what they wear). That was not the case at a Goose Island sponsored FADER party last night at Folsom Street Foundry in San Francisco though. There, Dee Dee did just the opposite and wore a top that is definitely Not Safe For Instagram. We applaud her bravery. NSFW/NSFI pictures from the show are in this post along with their 14 song setlist (Smiths cover included). More below...
