Dr. Dog

October 11, 2008

Dr. Dog [doctor-dawg]: Dr. Dog are Philadelphia-natives bringing us psychedelic-pop/rock. It is quite a mix of everything really. Even a bit of doo-wop moments if you ask me. They recently released (a summer favorite of mine) their third-LP, Fate.


With songs ranging from “The Breeze,” where you can reminisce about those cool summer nights, to “The Beach,” a hard rocking thump party, there is no telling what this band has in store for you. They’re live performances are always filled with energy, melodic hard rock, and the idea that home-grown music will never die.

 Unfortunately, during their summer tour, the lead singer (Toby Leaman) was punched in the throat accidently during a performance. They had to postpone for nearly a month for the singer to recuperate. Starting in November, the band is touring overseas but will be back in the States on November 28th in Philadelphia (a rescheduled performance from the summer). Then Dec. 2, you can find them at Webster Hall in NYC. Originally, I was going to attend the New York show on my birthday (July 24th), but the singer was still unable to perform.

If you happen to be in San Francisco on October 30th, check them out with another amazing band, the Black Keys.

I leave you with some of my personal favorites by Dr. Dog.
