SF indie band, The Dodos, made waves at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood with dream pop opener, Springtime Carnivore. Springtime Carnivore serenaded the audience with her ethereal vocals. She kept an upbeat tone with faded strings, blown-out drums, fuzzy guitars, and pawnshop keyboards.
Then The Dodos came on. For most indie rock bands, a stringed-instruments like the guitar is typically the center “lead” instrument. The Dodos, however, take this formula, and flip it on its head. The drums ended up being the focus of the band’s set, giving their performance a unique sound making them stand out from several other contemporary acts. The Dodos has been a stalwart of the Bay Area music scene for quite some time now and they proved that they will continue to be for years to come with another excellent performance.
