  • The Dodos on Jimmy Fallon!

San Francisco's very own Dodos hit network TV on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday, bringing along occasional member Neko Case for a special version of "Don't Try and Hide It." Notable aspects include: Case's high-pitched accents on the chorus sonically eclipsing everyone else; Meric Long's eerie deer-in-the-headlights stare; and the generally pulse-quickening uplift of this song, a highlight off the Dodos' latest album, No Color. Props to the local boys for making it to big-time TV and bringing their famous friend along. And for, uh, doing a late-night musical performance that's worth watching. Check out the video after the jump.

The Dodos are off touring Europe right now, but you can check out our review of their last headlining show at the Fillmore, and download a new song, "So Clold," for free on their website.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
