Around 11 p.m. yesterday evening, four young women, standing almost completely stoic, took the stage last night at Boston’s Brighton Music Hall. Clad in all black, save for the lead singer’s bleach blonde hair, the group stood silently for a few seconds, taking in the crowd that braved the cold weather to watch them perform. In what seemed like an instant, the once stoic group, with the first strum of guitar, suddenly flipped a switch and captivated an entire crowd. These four women are collectively known as the Dum Dum Girls.

Japandriods - “The House that Heaven Built”
Japandroids released a video for their awesome song “The House That Heaven Built”. The video uses live concert footage, and if you look closely you’ll see the Brighton Music Hall at the beginning and the end of the video for the shots outside the venue. I’m not sure if they used any live footage inside the club, as it appears they used several days of footage, and it looks like the first live portion was shot at Lee’s Palace (Toronto).
The Boston Phoenix actually interviewed the girl passed out in the street outside the Allston music venue at the end of the video. Read about it here.
Japandroids Live @ The Brighton Music Hall
Japandroids. Are. Awesome. So, I guess, it’s unsurprising, their show, a few weeks back was, well, just as awesome. The dark interior of Allston’s Brighton Music Hall, stood brimming with concert-goers, as Japandroid’s greeted their sold-out audience. The night was captured on film, via David Lynch worshipping, hero of the Musicstache, future roomy to your resident pinky, and undeniably talented with le “lens”, Jimmy Jacobs. Monsieur Jacobs managed to catch the group in a way that leaves even the most talkative, aka yours truly, with little to say: Japandroids WOW. So, without further ado, the band in question, in their natural element, for the beauteous followers of the Stache: enjoy Mon petits.
…I would also like to bring to your attention the following observation/fact: dayum, do those boys have some good lookin’ mustaches. Bravo Japandroids. Bravo.
