Non-festival goers have some nice options for live music this week in and around Austin. One of the best choices has to be The Dodos playing at local favorite venue Mohawk. Joining the indie mainstays are Dustin Wong and Daniel Francis Boyle. Having seen The Dodos several times before in the live setting, I can tell you that you won’t be disappointed if you scoop up a ticket to this show.

In what was an absolutely hectic night for the Austin music scene, we started our evening at Stubbs catching two of the better acts in the whole scene, The Walkmen and Beach House. For my two cents, there was only one clear-cut winner on the evening, but for that you’ll have to read on.
…not to mention you’ll get great pics from Brian Gray that you can’t get with your cellphone.
Do I really need to say anything about this show? I don’t think so. If you don’t have tickets, try to find some on craigslist kids. This show is sure to be one of the most anticipated in town of the year. Both of these bands are some of the few that can actually deliver what they record into the live setting. Opening support is provided by Dustin Wong. Oh and make sure you note the early door times so you don’t miss anything.
