Our old friends THE WARLOCKS are joining us for our upcoming Spring US Tour. The ‘Locks will open for us at all non-festival dates excluding Houston.
We’ll soon be back, and in greater numbers. See you in 2015!
One of the stranger books I’ve read.
Apparently someone is really hooked on old school crime novels and has become a strange new writer of that genre. Very unique voice, this writer.
Clocking in at like 100 pages this thing peels out right from the git go and then, well, kinda just keeps peeling out. Its not a long book so he can really keep it up. (Except for the part where he describes in brutal detail a rather lengthy game of blackjack punctuated by a sociopath and our hero lucky Dennis having some serious words).
This is definitely fun for boys but it opens and closes with descriptive pornographic scenes that make me wonder if this is a genre I previously didn’t know about called maybe like “trucker novellas” or something. I did read a lot of Penthouse Letters when I was a boy scout on newspaper recycling drives so I’m pretty familiar with the style.
I’m not done with it but so far it sure is fun. I’ll letcha know how it goes.
And how about that the hero is called Dennis? Quick what’s the last guy name you’d ever think of? Yup.

The Dandy Warhols are excited to tell you all about our first-ever LIVE Dandys album: Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder. We realize that maybe a Dandys live album is long overdue, but we really wanted to get it right, you know? We wanted a live album with no overdubs or re-recording, so when we put that “LIVE” on the cover, we mean it.
Recorded in June 2013 at Portland’s Wonder Ballroom, Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder documents The Dandy Warhols’ 13/13/13 Tour – a year long celebration of the 13th anniversary of (arguably) our most popular record, Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia. We run through every track from Thirteen Tales in order: starting with the layers of e-bow, jangle, and trumpet on “Godless” all the way through to the sparse hop-a-long epic “The Gospel.”
Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder will be available March 25th, 2014 on CD, double-LP (with bonus tracks), and digital download from our partners at The End Records (US) & on Naive Records (GSA & France).
You can pre-order Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder – with special bundles including color vinyl and t-shirt options right now HERE.
UPDATE 3/15: Yeah, we’ve sold out of the first pressing of the Thirteen Tales Live double-LP. We’ll let everyone know when we have more. IN the meantime, the compact disc bundle options are still available at Omega Order, and you can pre-order digital versions of the album at iTunes and Amazon.
