The Dandy Warhols
with Mother Mariposa
From the Promoter
General Admission - StandingIn 1994 The Dandy Warhols were formed in Portland, Oregon, in the shadow of the twilight years of the grunge scene. With Brit-pop reigning supreme on the other side of the pond, and influences ranging from 1960s garage rock to 80s/90s shoegaze, The Dandy Warhols began a career that would see them release nine studio albums, two compilation albums and 27 singles over a 25 year period.
“Holy cow, 25 years?!” says keyboardist Zia McCabe “I guess it has to have been that long since it feels like I’ve been doing this my entire life. Oh right, I have been doing this my entire adult life, ha. Time flies don’t it? So much history, so much music, so many memories and so much of it haaaazy, wow, just wow.”
Since their inception, The Dandy Warhols have sailed through, and past, shifting musical climates by keeping their art unfiltered and presenting thoughts un-mired by censorship. The band - Courtney Taylor-Taylor (vocals, guitar), McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmström (guitar), and Brent DeBoer (drums) - have gone on world tours, had hit singles, and even taken to the stage during the Greek riots. They've weathered shifts from vinyl and tape to CD, CD to digital, and back to vinyl again. They moved from paper fliers to social media, toiled with major labels, and throughout it all have remained a pure, synergistic unit.
