The Dodos 

8 p.m. Saturday, September 24. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

There are two factual nuggets most commonly known about San Francisco's the Dodos: The group consists of two people, and its 2008 jam "Fools" soundtracked a Miller Chill commercial. This information omits crucial details, such as Meric Long's abilities as both an earnest and cocksure vocalist. Long's partner Logan Kroeber is a dexterous drummer who fills out the duo's tunes like a one-man percussion section for a middle school symphonic band. And with a song like "Fools" providing atmosphere for the most mainstream of platforms while recalling noise-pop icons Animal Collective, the Dodos' artistic aspirations and overarching appeal mesh in perfect proportion.

Recommended If You Like: American folk, African drumming, multitasking, lime-flavored beers or extinct birds.
