America didn't really appreciate the catchy synth-pop of Canadian electro band Dragonette until 2011, when the group's hit song "Hello" (produced by DJ Martin Solveig) went platinum in the US and became a top-ten song in over 30 countries. Now, with accolades from both top music magazines and the world of fashion (Dragonette collaborated on a music video with designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, and W Magazine, Elle, and Lucky are all fans), the band is poised to become the Next Big Thing. Catch the effervescent Toronto-based band at Avalon Hollywood, where they celebrate the release of their third album, "Bodyparts."
