Lucky Ducks living in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area were treated on Sunday night to the video premiere of The Dandy Warhols film 13 Songs In 13 Places, at the Hollywood Theatre in NE Portland. One of my beloved bands, are currently celebrating the 13th anniversary of the release of their classic album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia.
The unique celebration began last spring when the band began performing each of the album’s 13 tracks in 13 different locations throughout the Greater Portland area. The stripped down performances were filmed and produced by Into The Woods.
For 12 bucks (not $13), the night included musician friends of The Dandy’s performing acoustic covers, the film presentation, and a Q&A with the band. How Fun! Also, one lucky fan was rewarded with the opportunity to perform a Dandy’s cover on stage by winning a contest that the band held on their Facebook page.
The Dandy’s are: frontman-guitarist Courtney Taylor-Taylor, guitarist Peter Holmstrom, drummer Brent Fathead DeBoer, and drum roll please….. keyboardist Ms. Zia McCabe.
Back in June the neo-psychedelic indie rockers released the remastered 13th Anniversary Edition of 13 Tales From Urban Bohemia. Its available in 2CD format with bonus material. You can download it from your favorite DL site, or visit the Dandy’s website for the
highly recommended Dandy bundles (below).
13 Tales From Urban Bohemia remains a timeless album that I rank as one of my personal
favorites of all-time.
