If we were to be honest about what kicked off the idea of SUPERSWEET Live! in Thailand, the answer would be the Dodos; and it took us two years to get here. Dream show from the start, these guys wowed us when we first saw them live half a decade ago. From then, every single Dodos show witnessed has been a brand-new experience, nothing feels forced or too rehearsed. There is nothing but two men, Meric Long and Logan Kroeber, on guitar and drums - the simplest and most organic set up one could imagine - are able to create live shows that are spontaneous, and manically intense to the mass but very personal to each individual. That's why our next Live Exhibition will come as a twin concept show: Electric and Acoustic.
From the rebellious folkish pop album 'Beware of the Maniacs' (2006) to the critically acclaimed 'Visiter' (2008), to 'Time to Die' (2009), and their most thoughtful 'No Color' (2011), the styles and influences the Dodos share with us have evolved consistently. While the multi-layer sounds on loop with the rhythmic finger-picking guitar and quirky drumming will remain their signatures, the twin concept will best demonstrate their ability to create something refreshing, completely unique and a once in a lifetime memory.
