Dodos with Dustin Wong

Tue. Oct. 8 | Meric Long and Logan Kroeber spoiled Dodos fans by employing Neko Case as a backup singer on 2011's No Color. The new Carrier (Polyvinyl) doesn't have any such trump cards, only Long's intricate finger-picked melodies running apace with Kroeber's antelope drumming. Dustin Wong (ex-Ponytail) opens at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
