The Dø are going on tour! The France-based duo's sophomore album Both Ways Open Jaws was mistakenly left off my favorites of 2011 list last year and it seems like now is the perfect opportunity to redeem myself. Or really just the re-live the amazingness that was the eclecticism of that record. I've never seen the duo live before have certain wondered what that must be like. Looks like I'll soon have my answer as The Dø prep for a very short North American tour later this summer. They'll be playing three US dates and one Canadian date at least at this point. If they plan to expand that tour, that'd be great.
If you're in the NY area you're in pretty much the best of luck as the duo will playing three easily reachable shows: July 31st at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, August 1st at Mercury Lounge in Manhattan, and Western New Yorkers, you're not being ignored either, there's a show at Lee's Palace in Toronto on August 3rd that's sure to be worth the trek.
I can hope that band sound as absolutely incredible as they do in their live session at Studio Pigalle:
