The Dodos @ Studio B (more by Ryan Muir)
The Dodos

Club Planet: At what point did you realize The Dodos were taking off (har har) ?

Meric Long: I'd say around the time Visiter came out, in March, and we'd just done South By Southwest. We were driving through Austin when we started getting a ton of calls from different people who were like, "You're invited to come play Siren," or "You're invited to come play the Pitchfork Festival." I remember just driving the car around, answering all these phone calls. Our manager kept calling our phone, and every time I saw her name light up I wondered, "What next?" It was a really exciting time, and there was a profound moment where I realized that we were not going to be home much for the rest of the year.

The Dodos have announced their fall tour. All dates are with The Ruby Suns, and that includes shows at both Music Hall of Williamsburg (10/13) and Bowery Ballroom (10/14). Tickets for both go on AmEx presale at noon, and general sale on Friday. All dates, and the cover art for their previously mentioned new album, below...
