The Dandy Warhols Play Terminal 5 Tomorrow Night

May 30th, 2013

Formed in mid-’90s Portland, Ore., the Dandy Warhols—frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor, drummer Brent DeBoer, guitarist Peter Holmström and keyboardist Zia McCabe— immediately earned heady comparisons to the Velvet Underground with the release of their debut full-length, Dandys Rule OK?, in 1995. But it was actually their second album, The Dandy Warhols Come Down, which came out two years later, that really put the band on the map. Not only did their music begin appearing in movies and in television, but the quartet began to have a bit of international success, too. The Dandy Warhols (above, doing “Bohemian Like You” on Later … with Jools Holland) eventually supported David Bowie on a European tour and then appeared in the documentary Dig! alongside the Brian Jonestown Massacre. But despite this success, the group continues to record new material every couple of years, including 2012’s This Machine (stream it below). Next month they release a remastered version of their biggest album, Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia, but tomorrow night they play Terminal 5.
