Show Preview - The Dandy Warhols - 5.28.13 - Mr Smalls - Concert Preview

The Dandy Warhols will be appearing next Tuesday, 5.28 at Mr Smalls Theater. This will kick off Mr Smalls 10th Anniversary Celebration which includes many larges acts making an appearance at the venerable old church. For the first show the Dandy Warhols will be play their seminal album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia which will be played in its entirety. This is the thirteenth (as the album suggests) release year which makes the anniverary coincidence even better. The Portland based band has produced over seven proper LPs, this one reaching their most commercial success ever.

From their press:

2013 marks the thirteenth anniversary of The Dandy Warhols’ Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia. To celebrate the occasion, the band has overseen a newly remastered and expanded 13th Anniversary Edition of the album, to be released June 11 in 2CD and digital audio packages by Capitol/UMe, and in a limited edition deluxe vinyl box set, available exclusively on www.thedandywarhols.com. The new edition adds ‘Thirteen Tales’ session outtakes, early and alternate mixes, and home demos of songs from the album. The remastered original album will also be released by Capitol/UMe on 180-gram vinyl with replicated original packaging.

The Dandy Warhols’ third album, Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia hit The Billboard 200 and reached No. 12 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart upon its 2000 release. The single “Bohemian Like You,” propelled by active radio play and a memorable music video, reached the Top 30 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart. Singer Courtney Taylor-Taylor fronts the Dandys with winking, irony-laced lyrics accompanied by a versatile range of arrangements, from space-rock jams to synth-driven popscapes.

Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia begins with the 16-minute opening suite of “Godless,” “Mohammed,” and “Nietzsche,” leading to signature songs including “Get Off,” “Cool Scene,” and the aforementioned “Bohemian Like You,” which, Rolling Stone praised, “combines a particularly wry sociocultural vignette with what may be the most muscular Stones guitar riff of the last 20 years.”
The shows begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are $35 and can be found here. More information about the band can be found here:
