The Dodos Have a Brawl in Ultra-Noir 'Black Night' Video

Categories: Video
Good week for sumptuous and slightly sinister black-and-white videos from San Francisco acts. This one, for "Black Night," the first song off of No Color (aha!), finds local duo The Dodos channeling equal parts Johnny Cash and Fleet Foxes over an ever-stranger, ever-tenser assemblage of split-second scenes that culminates in a full-on... well, see for yourself below.

Sometimes a night out in the Mission just doesn't turn out the way you planned, you know? Unless you've got weird facial hair, in which case sometimes it turns precisely the way you planned. The video was directed by Ariel Danziger, whose work you might recognize from past joints by Passion Pit and Muse.

The Dodos are on tour romping around Canada as we speak, but you can catch them a week from tomorrow at the Fillmore before they head off to instigate bar fights all over Europe.
