Be Smart, See Dum Dum Girls Tonight

February 7th, 2012

Singer-songwriter Kristen Gundred’s varied musical tastes (think: the Ronettes and the Ramones) became obvious when she took the stage name Dee-Dee and founded the band Dum Dum Girls. The quartet—Dee-Dee (vocals and guitar), Jules (guitar and vocals), Sandy (drums and vocals) and Malia James (bass and vocals)—really arrived on the scene when the debut LP I Will Be came out about two years ago. Since then the foursome has released more well-received lo-fi music with an EP, He Gets Me High, and a second LP, Only in Dreams, coming out last year. And with so much new music, Dum Dum Girls (above, doing “Bedroom Eyes” for KEXP FM at last year’s CMJ Music Marathon) are on the road. Do yourself a favor and see them play Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight.
