Dum Dum Girls

One of our favorite new groups Dum Dum Girls’ 11-song Sub Pop debut I Will Be finally has an official release date: We’re looking forward to March 30th and to hear what Richard Gottehrer (Voidoids, Blondie, the Go-Gos, the Raveonettes) has done with her dusky girl-group nodding noise-pop. For now we can be contented with her increasingly polished live shows. They played to a packed, appreciative audience this past Saturday at Spaceland in Los Angeles. Our intrepid photographer Andrew Youssef says “a girl fight broke out near the end of their set at the front of the stage,” but otherwise it seems like the vibes were positive. How could they not be with Pearl Harbor on the bill? Before Dee Dee & CO. hit the stage, PH’s Piper and Skylar did their peaceful dream-pop thing. Unfortunately the space wasn’t packed at that point, so a bunch of folks missed a live “Luv Goon” and “California Shakedown” along with a newbie, etc. (Pearl Harbor probably should’ve switched spots with the twee pop group the Tartans.) If you missed the show, no worries, Andrew took plenty of photos.

  1. Looking forward to I Will Be. Was tempted to vote for Dum Dum Girls as Best New Act in the Gummy Awards but I felt like I hadn’t heard enough to commit to that. Excited to hear more Pearl Harbor in the new year too.

    • I saw Dum Dum Girls at Art Fag Fest, and I fell in love with every member of the band. I also didn’t vote them as best new act, but they got my vote as my female crush for 2009!

  2. this particular lo-fi female group hasn’t trashed on everybody that eats at country-wide restaurant chains yet, right?
    soooo…still in the running for indie rock crush?
