Dandy Warhols/Shivas @ the Bluebird 11/18

On Wed. Nov. 18, the Dandy Warhols and the Shivas will be coming to Bloomington! What a better way to conclude your hump day than by coming to the Bluebird to hear two incredible alternative-rock bands? Both rock groups, originally out of Portland, Oregon, are both heavy on the psychedelic sound. The Shivas have a 60s surf sound (Beach Boys anyone?), while the Dandy Warhols have the psych-pop sound comparable to The Velvet Underground.

The Shivas are newer to the rock scene, forming in 2006. The band is a little punk, a little garage, and a lot of fun guitar jam. Their 2014 release, You Know What To Do, is their most popular album yet. This is sure to get the crowd jumping and grooving.

The Dandy Warhols have been making music for quite awhile now – since 1994. Their recent release, Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder, was recorded live at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland and are following that release up with a tour. The Dandy Warhols embody what modern neo-psych rock is, especially with crowd-pleasing hit songs like “Bohemian Like You” and “We Used To Be Friends”.

The energy of rock will be alive and well at the Bluebird!  Doors at 7 p.m.; 21+, tickets can be purchased in advance here.
