Dawn Bombs / Idell Drive

August 17, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$6 – $10

If you took three jazz musicians steeped in Vampire Weekend’s off-kilter psych pop along with Local Natives alternative indie rock, you might get close to Bellingham’s The Dawn Bombs.
Perfect for private candlelit evenings, festival circuits, or ideally dirty house shows, The Dawn Bombs craft left-field experimental doowop with intricate harmonies and complicated arrangements. It’s the kind of pop you’d finally want to hear on your radio.

“For a band whose sound walks on a tight-rope between an enticing mathematical modulation of ’50s pop, and dangerously sophisticated indie rock sentiments, there could not be a more fitting name. ” – Keenan Ketzner, What’s Up Magazine


Doors at 7:30 PM. Show at 8 PM. $6-$10 Sliding Scale
