Preview: The Dandy Warhols kickoff new tour at W.O.W. Hall on Wednesday



“You’d probably know them by that one song” is an accurate way to describe a lot of one-hit-wonder bands. Portland-based alternative and neo-psychedelia band The Dandy Warhols in no way escapes the weight of that phrase, but they are definitely not just another one-hit-wonder of a group.

The band released its latest LP, Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live At The Wonder (a live recording of a previous 2000 release), last year which included a version of “that one song” everybody knows: “Bohemian Like You.” The raucous, upbeat, power-pop influenced, straight-to-the-point jam, was featured on multiple television soundtracks in the early 2000s in shows such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Six Feet Under. It was also the theme to the U.S. version of the trivia show Cash Cab. “Bohemian Like You” gained the band a lot of traction in the 2000s, with Robert Webb of The Independent even referring to it as “a defining song of the last decade.”

Over the years the group has collaborated with bands like Dinosaur Jr. and Spoon, shared the stage with David Bowie and even been a part of a documentary called Dig!

The Dandy Warhols will kick off its U.S. tour on Wednesday, Nov. 4th in Eugene, OR. The band was originally set to play at the McDonald Theatre, but will instead be at W.O.W. Hall —a venue the band first played in 1996 — for a more intimate performance.

L.A. band, The Shelters will support the Dandy Warhols for the show. Tickets for the all-ages show cost $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show beginning at 8 p.m.

Listen to the live version of “Bohemian Like You” off of Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live At The Wonder below.
