Five songs into Wednesday nightâ€™s Dawes show, Taylor Goldsmith asked how many in the crowd of about 300 had seen the band before. Maybe a third or so whooped and hollered in response.
â€śThis is for the first-timers,â€ť the bandâ€™s frontman said before the Los AngelesÂ foursome tore into an incendiary version of â€śWhen My Time Comesâ€ť from its first album, â€śNorth Hills,â€ť at the TaftÂ Theatre Ballroom.
