O2 Academy Islington – 11/04/2012
Permalink : http://mostlyferocious.com/2012/04/21/dum-dum-girls-live/
The queens of Subpop, Dum Dum Girls, off the back of the success of their second album, ‘Only In Dreams’ play tonight at London’s O2 Academy in Islington. Arriving on stage in matching white sixties dresses they look as divine as always. Gone are the dirty leather biker jackets in lieu of something purer (thankfully, trademark fishnets and blood-red lipstick are still in check).
Kicking off with ‘He Gets Me High’, their guitars are louder than hell from the start. Dee Dee’s swagger and frantic head nods signify how ‘up for it’ they are for this. Bassist Bambi has been swapped out for newbie Malia James, and she looks like she’s always been part of the band.
