Tonight in Music: Exile in {Imaginary} Girlville, the Dodos

posted by on June 25 at 12:22 PM

Two shows tonight, both Stranger Suggests:

The Dodos - “Fools”
The Dodos
Not every acoustic-guitar-and-drums duo could open one tour for shock-art rockers Les Savy Fav and headline another with garage-burners the Oh Sees. Not every such duo is the Dodos. The SF band more than holds its own, with energetic shredding, masterful musicianship, and songs that range from spider-walking indie pop to string-rattling blues-punk ragers. The Dodos always showcase deft guitar work, precise percussion, and the kind of stop-start synchronization only duos can achieve. With the Oh Sees. (Neumo’s, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467. 8 pm, $10, 21+.) Eric Grandy
Liz Phair - “Never Said”
Exile in (Imaginary) Girlville
In 1993, a whole bunch of people met and fell in love with a record that would quickly distinguish itself as one of indie rock’s greatest—Exile in Guyville, Liz Phair’s career-engendering, critics’-poll-topping debut that recalibrated expectations of what a girl and her guitar could do. Tonight, Three Imaginary Girls honors Guyville’s 15th anniversary with a slew of local folks—including Rachel Flotard, Ms. Led, Throw Me the Statue, Team Gina, and Tennis Pro—playing Guyville start to finish. (Cohosted by yours truly.) (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 8 pm, $8, 21+.) David Schmader

'The Stranger' covers from Everett to Tacoma and there are over 200 bars/nightclubs with at least 75 live shows a night.

How come you lame fucks only talk about shows at Neumos and Chop Suey? Every god damn day. It's like fucking Groundhog Day over and over again. Is there a 3 block radius that you can't leave?

Seriously, do you get 10 bucks everytime you get on their jock?

What a crock of shit your rag has turned out to be.

Well anyway. The Dodos played in Missoula last night and they were super great.
