Best Indie & Rock in Madison

Dawes at Majestic Theatre

Dawes

Through a tapestry of warm vocals and sun-soaked guitar hooks, Dawes have made a name for themselves for replicating the feel of the Lauren Canyon sound of the 70's. But far from being a copy, the quartet are something retro inspired, but with a chilled vibe straight out of the present. Enjoy some authentically vintage beats by Dawes in 2024!
