Dawes is the poster-boy band of the neo-Laurel Canyon folk rock scene. They play stripped-down, no frills roots rock, with just drums, bass, guitar, organ and vocals. It's good stuff — melodic and heartfelt. See 'em at the cap on Wednesday night for as little as $25. Shovels & Rope open the show, a preview to their Newport Folk Festival appearance later in the week.
