An Evening With Dawes: Passwords Tour
Through a tapestry of warm vocals and sun-soaked guitar hooks, Dawes have made a name for themselves for replicating the the feel of the Lauren Canyon sound of the 70's. But far from being a copy, the quartet are something retro inspired, but with a chilled vibe straight out of the present.
After changing their name from Simon Dawes and swapping post punk for a more mellow folk rock sound, Dawes first rose to prominence in 2010 with an appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, the LA based foursome have gone on to work with some of their heroes including playing with Jacksone Browne at an Occupy Wall Street event in 2012. In 2016 they released their fifth record, We're All Gonna Die, continuing to channel a sun soaked brand of 'authentically vintage' tunes.
This year sees Dawes heading out in support of their upcoming sixth studio album, Passwords, and is the first leg of the bands national tour. With no support act, the band will be playing two full sets each night with no opener.
