Dawes @ The Bluebird 12/16

On Mon. Dec. 16, Dawes will be performing in Bloomington at The Bluebird Nightclub.

Dawes’ unique style of folk-rock first caught people’s attention in 2009 with the release of their debut album North Hills. Hailing from LA, the band is influenced by artists like Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, resulting in an authentic sound that is rare in today’s rock.

In 2011, the band released their second album, Nothing Is Wrong, and attracted new fans with a more polished record with co-headlined a tour with Blitzen Trapper. For fans of the tv show Parenthood, viewers may remember seeing the band perform in an episode this past February.

The band is currently touring to promote their most recent album, Stories Don’t End, which was released in April. Critics argue that the band’s third album is their most modern-sounding and complete record to date, peaking at 36 on Billboard’s Top 200.

For fans of Dawes and of a more modern take on folk-rock, don’t let finals get in the way of seeing a great show on Monday night.

Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 and it is a 21+ show.
