Even if you think you haven't heard of the Dandy Warhols, you have. The rock outfit from Portland, Oregon, have been a staple of movie and TV soundtracks for the last decade and a half; they provided the theme songs to two hip-but-canceled-too-soon TV shows, Undeclared ("Solid") and Veronica Mars ("We Used To Be Friends"), and their most popular tune, "Bohemian Like You," has been featured in Chuck, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Six Feet Under, and Igby Goes Down, among a slew of others. They've even starred in their own film, the stellar 2004 rock documentary Dig!, which charted their rise to fame and testy relationship with contemporaries the Brian Jonestown Massacre. The Dandies come to the Fine Line in support of their recently released greatest hits album, The Capitol Years: 1995-2007, which includes a murderer's row of spectacular, acid-tinged rock songs, including "Godless," "Get Off," and several other tracks from their high water mark, Thirteen Tales of Urban Bohemia. The disc also includes a new recording, "This Is the Tide," which is, well, pretty fucking dandy. With Blue Giant. 18+.
