WKDU Presents: The Dodos / Palehound

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - 8:00pm

Johnny Brenda's

The Dodos are a band of two, clean-cut halves. One of the duo was a student of West African Ewe drumming and intricate Blues fingerpicking guitar, the other hails from a background in heavy metal bands. Together, they create raw, acoustic roots-rock goodness. They have a new album Certainty Waves, which represents a re-evaluation and exploration of their long-held unique sound.
Supporting them will be Palehound. Since forming in 2014, Palehound -- Kempner, drummer Jesse Weiss (Spook The Herd), and new bassist Larz Brogan (a veteran of Boston DIY who "had 13 local bands last year") -- have taken their plainspoken, technique-heavy indie rock from the basements of Boston to festivals around the world.
