First time catching these guys was quite the treat.  After canceling their last two shows in Minneapolis at the Quest and Fine Line, the Doves owed us big time.  An hour and a half set was a good apology. The apology was accepted, although I was hoping for a double encore. 

Everything about their set was fantastic,  the video in the background and the experienced stage presence from the band.  Doves are in a league of their own.  All my buddies were amazed that Jimi Goodwin could play a right handed bass upside-down.  

The Doves have four full length albums that everyone should listen to non-stop.  Kingdom of Rust just keeps everything rolling for these Manchester Boys.
