San Francisco Review

At last, we have a San Francisco review, an awesome one at that. With some of the best pictures I have seen on this tour. Thanks to Chov for bringing this one to our attention.

From Hippies Are Dead:

Obviously, however, enthusiasm can only take you so far, and at some point you need to match it with technical skill. Lucky for them, Doves has it in spades. It’s enough of a miracle that the band can reproduce their sound live, but that they can do it so dynamically and accurately, and then add a layer newness on top is simply stunning.

San Francisco & MTV2 Subterranean

With all the LA love of recent days. We have not forgotten San Francisco! The band played the regular set at the sold out fillmore, with the addition of the US tour premier of Compulsion.

We haven’t come across any reviews as yet, if you have a review let us know. Here are some awesome photo galleries & video:

Doves & Pop Noir in LA.

Thanks to whrrlmusic over at twitter for pointing out this collection of pictures taken by the Pop Noir guys, of their time back stage with doves at the LA Wiltern.

Check out the OC Weekly picture slideshow taken at the Anaheim show last Friday.

Doves play their final California show tonight in San Francisco. Then its on the Pacific Northwest. On Thursday the band hit Vancouver to play the awesome Commodore Ballroom. Here’s a wee snippet from the British Ccolumbia newspaper the Globe and Mail:

Doves’ latest album, Kingdom of Rust, has been called a Lancastrian Joshua Tree, so strong is the group’s connection to their northern British roots – they even recorded it on a farm near their home town. This is not a new fad: On 2002’s The Last Broadcast, they named a track after a motorway, the M62, recording the song under one of the road’s flyovers. This is their first tour since 2005 and early reports from U.K. gigs suggest this should be a stormer of a show. Thursday, Commodore Ballroom, doors at 8 p.m.
