  • 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.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
