The Dodos

Originally formed in 2006 as Dodobird by multi-instrumentalist Meric Long, unpredictable San Francisco indie rock duo the Dodos acquired their new moniker with the arrival of Logan Kroeber, a fellow West Coast artist whose penchant for experimental drumming and progressive metal melded perfectly with Long's interest in West African Ewe drumming and country blues fingerpicking.

Shortly afterward, band member Meric Long released an EP entitled “Dodo Bird.” In support of this EP Long and Kroeber toured intermittently from July through September 2006, after which they released their first album, entitled “Beware of the Maniacs.” In 2007, the band signed to the Frenchkiss record label. In 2008, the band released a second album entitled “Visiter” and begin a 17-venue springtime national tour. Highly Recommended!
