The weather is horrible, that must mean it's time for the annual late-winter mood-lifter that is Doldrums. Granted, the music calendar is a bit busier nowadays in March than it was when the fest was first conceived five years ago, but the more the merrier. This year's edition was held at Club SAW, and the first evening had some heavy synthetic leanings starting with vowel-and-capital dodger sbsst. Here he is!
Kate Schroder (also of Those Gulls) played next; she was joined by cellist Shawn and violinist Neil.
Stringed action with Neil!
And so on!
Church of Trees broke out the projection for some top-notch 1980s styles synth-pop. Here's Bernard and Felicity (who's also on Sparklesaurus).
There was also some dancing from Surraya!
Bernard adjusts that dial!
Even more Felicity!
The always versatile Destroy Clocks finished the night off; here's Nicole!
Kevin works the pedals.
They played a short set since drummer Tyler was under the weather.
The whole lot!
And finally a shouty bit!
A great way to beat the winter blues.
