CQAF: Dum Dum Girls – The Black Box, Belfast

DumDumGirls1 DumDumGirls2 DumDumGirls3 DumDumGirls4 DumDumGirls5 DumDumGirls6 DumDumGirls7 DumDumGirls8 DumDumGirls9 DumDumGirls10 DumDumGirls11 DumDumGirls12Led by Dee Dee, Dum Dum Girls churn out pop music that adheres to her self-proclaimed M.O.: ‘blissed-out buzz saw.’ 

Dee Dee formed Dum Dum Girls in late 2008 as a solo project – the name a nod to both The Vaselines album, Dum-Dum, and the Iggy Pop song ‘Dum Dum Boys’. 

Described by Rolling Stone as  “sleek, tough, pouty indie pop streaked with black-eyeliner distortion and glossy melodies”, they stopped off at Belfast’s Black Box as part of Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival in association with Strange Victory.

Our photographer Paul Woods went down to the show and captured some fantastic photos.
