The Bay Bridged is proud to announce the latest “Bay Bridged Presents” event, a terrific night of Bay Area bands that includes the first hometown headlining performance by The Dodos since they released the acclaimed Visiter earlier this year.

For years, the duo of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber have traveled the country, showcasing their dynamic performance skills and developing a winning collection of songs that incorporate elements of psych rock, folk, and indie pop. To fans of the group’s first album, Beware of the Maniacs, the new record’s blend of catchy and intense sounds is no surprise, but it’s also a wholly more ambitious and exciting work that’s had critics across the country overflowing with praise.

The June 19th show is an amazing bill from top to bottom, so get your tickets early!

About the bands:

The Dodos‘ latest album Visiter has won over critics and indie rock fans alike. “Visiter‘s experimental pop is so joyous and liberated-sounding that it’s difficult not to get swept along in its wake.” (All Music) “Cerebral, twisted folk that’s as wistful as it is strident.” (Entertainment Weekly) “Geared to top every music critic’s year-end list.” (SF Weekly, Best of 2008) “One of the year’s best albums.” (Prefix Mag)

John Dwyer’s garage-influenced Thee Oh Sees are supporting the release of their new album The Master’s Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In, and it’s being called the band’s best yet. “Every track on The Master’s Bedroom is a winner.” (Delusions of Adequacy) “

[C]orrals 14 versions of the same song. Luckily it’s a fucking sweet song, well worth revisiting over and over for nuance.” (Tiny Mixtapes)

We’re big fans of Come Over Now, the debut album from Dreamdate, and we’re excited to hear some songs from the band’s forthcoming follow-up at the show. “Dreamdate get right to their business of brightening our day with their short, snappy tunes…[Y]ou might find yourself hummin’ along with these gals’ warm, smooth female vocals. Nice.” (Aquarius Records)
