Dustin Wong played the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on 27 September 2013 with the Dodos. Dustin is in the midst of a US tour with over 30 dates. It started in Chicago, went West for a bit then to the East Coast. He’s swinging south through Nashiville, Texas, to the West Coast where he will play a few dates with Takako Minekawa and circle back to Chicago to return to Tokyo.
With Grandma Gloria and Auntie Jan.
Auntie Jan reported: “Rob, Mom and I went into Boston and saw Dustin play last night. He seems to have a nice following. When we walked in, Mom noticed that there were no chairs and said ‘What? We have to stand?’. So, (Uncle) Rob asked for a chair for Mom. The Staff ended up bringing us up to the balcony section and got stools for Mom and I to sit on.”
