Their website classifies them as Americana and soul, which is true, but Dawes really shouldn’t count out rock and folk. Since the release of their debut record North Hills, which has met with quite a bit of success this past year, the boys from L.A. [none of whom are over 25] have been touring nonstop and delighting fans of Neil Young and Conor Oberst alike. On Friday, Nov. 5 they are accompanied by Vetiver and Peter Wolf Crier at Webster Hall (Doors: 6 p.m. Tickets: $17 adv. / $20 D.O.S. 18+).
