Los Angeles-based group, Dum Dum Girls made a stop at Ferndale’s Loving Touch on Sunday March 30th.
The talented group is touring in support of their newest and third album, “Too True”, which was released in January.
Opening the night was exceptional band, Blouse, hailing from Portland. The band brought a subtle, yet impactful presence whilst playing a number of songs from their latest LP, “Imperium”, as well as earlier works from their self-titled debut. Blouse presented a dream pop vibe that seemed perfectly fitting to set the stage for Dum Dum.

Dum Dum Girls emerged under dim lights ready to put on a terrific show. The powerful ladies presented music from their latest LP, as well as tracks from earlier discography. Some faithful fans in the audience sang along to every word.
Equally matching presence with beauty, mic stands were adored with colorful flowers. Lead singer Dee Dee Welchez sparkled in a glittery black ensemble.
The band closed out their set with “Sight of You”, a great cover from Pale Saints’s 1990 album, “The Comforts of Madness”.
After exiting the stage, Dum Dum Girls returned for a two song encore.
Dum Dum Girls will be heading to the western part of the United States, before taking their tour overseas in May.
