The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, in partnership with Flying Saucer presents, proudly announces that influential alternative, pop and garage rock group The Dandy Warhols and special guests Savoy Motel will perform at the concert Hall. Formed in 1994 by singer/guitarist Courtney Taylor-Taylor and guitarist Peter Holmström, they were joined soon after by keyboardist Zia McCabe and Taylor-Taylor’s cousin Brent DeBoer on drums in 1998.
The Dandy Warhols released their debut album “Dandys Rule OK” in 1995, which combined elements of garage rock, Britpop and shoegaze music. In 1996, Capitol Records signed The Dandy Warhols and the band proceeded to release a slew of beloved albums from 1997 through 2008, highlights of which were re-released in 2010 on the compilation album “The Capitol Years 1995-2007”. It’s quite possible that you’re familiar with their infectious 2001 single “Bohemian Like You”, which caught fire
after being used in a popular Vodafone advertisement, on the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and in the Dreamworks animated movie Flushed Away. Their 2003 single, “We Used to Be Friends” was used as the theme song for the cult television show Veronica Mars and during an episode of The O.C.
Nashville four-piece, Savoy Motel’s debut album comes from a pedigree of garage, punk, and power-pop groups (bassist Jeffrey Novak founded both Cheap Time and the Rat Traps; drummer Jessica McFarland was also in Cheap Time, and along with guitarists Dillon Watson and Mimi Galbierz, played in Heavy Cream). They transpose the energy and hooks of those groups to an entirely different move: an intensely orchestrated hybrid of glam rock, soul, dance music, and showmanship.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
