 ザ・グレート・エスケープ初日にて、2組目に見に行ったのはサンフランシスコ出身のザ・ドードーズ。アコースティック・ギター、ドラム、木琴というシンプルな構成のオルタナティヴ系のフォーク・ロックなバンド。新人扱いをされてはいるが、すでに5年は活動していて、アルバムも3枚発表している。

 私自身フェスに行く直前まで彼らのことは知らなかったのだが、結構な人気があるらしく、キャパが650人のこのヴェニュー、コメディアがほぼフルキャパまで入っていた。この日は5月にしては涼しい日だったのだが、ヴェニュー内は熱気でむんむんだった。レコーディングされた音はさわやかな感じのする曲が多いのだが、ライブではかなりビートが効いた感じになっていてとてもパワフル。シンプルな構成とは言えども、いわゆる「アコースティック系のライブ」とはかけ離れていた。

 私は4曲目が終了した時点で次のバンドを撮影しにヴェニューを出てしまったのだが、そちらのヴェニューに到着して、撮ろうと思ったバンドが機材の故障でキャンセルになったの。最後まで見てれば良かったと後悔してしまった。
