Dovekins is a five-member band from Denver, Colorado, with a vintage sound best described as “old-timey.” They call themselves “folk/psychedelic/Western swing,” so be prepared for a pleasant mix of all three sewn up with accordion, upright bass, banjo, guitar, mandolin, drums, clarinet, flute, and even kazoos, not to mention five-part vocal harmony. If Squirrel Nut Zippers and Beirut mated, it would sound something like this. Landlubbers by nature, the band formed after an ill-advised sailing trip to Hawaii aboard a ship called the Dove. The trip was a bust, but the band was born, and they’ve been stirring up crowds cross-country ever since. The band is currently touring to promote their debut album Assemble the Aviary—13-tracks made for dancing barefoot and reveling in nostalgia.
Doors at Mojo’s open at 8:30. Tickets are a steal at $5.
