Rockwave Festival Canceled

This, again, from the band’s manager, Jen:

Sean, There was a change to one of the tour dates. The Rockwave Festival
in Greece wasn’t granted their license, so it was cancelled. And then it
was reinvented as just this big gig in Athens on July 3rd (instead of
2nd). So, now we’re playing with The Cure on the 3rd. Everything else is
still the same. We got to hang out with Robert Smith on Saturday night
at Meltdown…pretty cool. He was a definite highlight, as was playing
with Nina Hagen at the Steelworx Fest. in Luxembourg. Thanks, Jen

Tour Log: First Two Weeks

This comes from The Warhols manager, Jen:

Hey there. How are things with you? We are having an amazing tour. Blew
everyone away at the Meltdown Festival in London Saturday night! The
band did a special 1 hr. set: Be In Mohammad Rave Up Beautiful and
powerful. They played an encore with David Bowie, “White Light/White
Heat,” to a huge crowd. One of those moments no one could forget. Brent
was on congas, Zia on tambourine, Courtney and Pete on guitar. I still
have chills! Coates is working on his journal (Coates Notes?) and taking
tons of photos. Hopefully he’ll find a computer so he can email you
soon…. Thanks, Jen

Warhols, Bowie Cover Velvets at Meltdown

The annual Meltdown Festival, organized this year by none other than The
Dandy Warhols ‘biggest fan’, David Bowie, was, by all accounts, a
smashing success. The culmination of the show was a set by our very own
Warhols, featuring an encore with The Thin White Duke himself. In front
of a crowd which featured the likes of The Cure, Bono, and Brian Eno,
Bowie and The Warhols stunned the crowd with a ‘surprise’ rendition of
the Velvet Underground classic “White Light/White Heat”.

Contest Winner Announced

The winner of the two tickets to see the Warhols at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland was Peter Walters of Pendleton, OR. Not only did Peter’s photo contain a visual bribe in photos of sexy male models (presumably to sway judges Gothman and Zia), his was the only submission that didn’t contain overt references to rampant drug use. (“We don’t want to reward anyone for that,” Zia laughed.)

Warhols Play Secret Hometown Gig

Billed under their classic pseudonym “Fags Like Us”, The Dandy Warhols played a “secret” set in Portland on Wednesday (06/12/02). Opening for friends Television Eye (featuring Spike Keating, ex of Swoon 23 and Magic Fingers), the band performed a limited set to a small crowd of “the usual Portland scenesters”.

“Come see us tomorrow night, “ Courtney advised the crowd, referring to the upcoming show on Thursday at the Crystal Ballroom. “We’ll play every song we know.”

 

Back To Work for the Warhols

The Dandy Warhols left Portland last Wednesday for a three week swing through some of your better European festivals, including Glastonbury, Parkpop, and David Bowie’s Meltdown Festival. The band will return to Portland for three weeks following Ireland’s Witness Festival in July before venturing back to Europe for more Festival work, including Reading, Leeds, and Lowlands. For more infor on dates, see the SHOWS page.

 

Portland, Reading & Leeds Dates Added

 

The Warhols have added dates to their summer excursion, including a hometown show at the Crystal Ballroom and perennial favorites Reading and Leeds. See the SHOWS page for more details.

More from Fathead in London

I wrote back to Fathead, saying:

Nothing’s going on at home. Me and Coates and Pete and Sheeh are going
to see the midnight show for Star Wars, we’re gonna see if there’s
anyone else going. Hope you guys will get to see it there. Do they have
movies in London? Has this technology bit the Brits yet? (Joke.)

Well, the joke was a on me (as per usual), as not only did Fathead and
Taylor get to see the new Star Wars, but two days before the rest of us
losers in Portland. Bah! Foiled again!

 

It also looks like Fathead has been playing with Photoshop again…
I’m wondering where he got the Windows XP ‘wallpaper’ from–
I thought Nick was a Mac man as well. Suspicious! (05/15/02)
