Not willing to incur an overdraft charge or two to make that summer trip to Santa Monica? No sweat. Los Angeles-bred Dawes will be in town in no time, and the all-American folk rock band will be bringing California to the Royale for your listening pleasure,
you poor East Coaster, you.
The boys are summer touring on behalf of their latest album, Stories Don’t End, which was inspired by writer Joan Didion (yet another Californian); so maybe leave the assorted cheeses, bring the white whine.
