Just Dandy!

When the Dandy Warhols played the Belly Up in December of 2010, local reviewers dissed the band for their “aloof” attitude. The foursome from Portland seemed, then, to hide in the shadows of the stage — not anymore. Seems as if the hipsters have come down to Earth as the band appeared to be having a good time on the third stop of this year’s North American summer tour in support of their new record, This Machine. The security guards had their work cut out for them at this show, as the crowd was rowdy and several patrons were escorted out.

As soon as the Dandys took to the stage, a pungent hemp-like odor filled the air and much of the quartet's early set seemed to drift languorously into elaborate space jams. Case in point: "We Used to Be Friends." Keyboardist Zia McCabe introduced "Enjoy Yourself" as the band's "most requested song."

The catchy "Bohemian Like You" got the crowd pumped up and singing along. And the moody, evocative "Godless" seemed to define the new and improved Dandy Warhols sound.
