The Dandy Warhols were never anyone’s idea of visionaries—even their best work is steeped in glorious West Coast emptiness. The Portland, OR, quartet once functioned as a dapper sponge, soaking up the culture and funneling various trendy sounds through its drone. In the ’90s, this meant paying homage to the ’60s; the early ’00s brought the band up to Reagan-era pop. Now the Dandies look back to their own past, as they tour behind a new compilation album, The Capitol Years 1995–2007. Opening band Hopewell plays glammy, polished retro rock that sounds like it’s ready for a close-up.
