Dr. Dog at Brooklyn Steel (June 21, 2018)

By Anthony Bauer, July 18th 2018

Earlier this year Dr. Dog returned back into the spotlight with the release of their fantastic new album Critical Equation (via We Buy Gold Records/Thirty Tigers) that is bound to end up on many ‘best of’ lists by years end. With the announcement of the new album, you knew they’d return to New York but boy did they return in true fashion with not one, not two but three sold out nights at Brooklyn Steel. We were there for the last night of their three-night run (as well as night 2) and opening things up all three nights was another Philly resident, (Sandy) Alex G.

On a gorgeous summers night in August, Philadelphia’s Dr. Dog returned back to Prospect Park in Brooklyn to play a free show at the bandshell for the first time since 2009 as part of the 2016 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival.  The band has been touring in support of their fantastic ‘new’ album which came out earlier this year, The Psychadelic Swamp (out via Anti).  I say ‘new’ as some of the material on the album was written by both Scott McMicken and Toby Leaman before Dr. Dog was even known as Dr. Dog.  The material was scraped and swept under the rug until they revisited the songs and brought them all back to life (and we’re thankful they did).

Dr. Dog at Terminal 5 (March 18, 2016)

Dr. Dog by Anthony Bauer

On Friday March 18th, Philadelphia’s own Dr. Dog triumphantly returned to the Terminal 5 stage to kick off the first night of a sold out 2 night run. Dr. Dog were touring in support of their fantastic album The Psychadelic Swamp that came out earlier this year in February, via Anti Records. Along for the ride and opening things up was fellow Philly rockers The Districts.

It’s hard to believe this was Dr. Dog’s first time back at the venue since their show way back in January of 2014, but thankfully it didn’t mark their first time back in New York City since then. Early in 2015 the band did a “4×4” which included a sold out 4 night run at The Bowery Ballroom as well as a sold out 4 night run at The Music Hall of Williamsburg for a whopping 8 night run. We were there for one of the Music Hall of Williamsburg shows and didn’t think anything could top that… until later in July of 2015 when they opened for Distpatch at the moderately bigger Madison Square Garden which was very impressive. So, to say the anticipation wasn’t high for this show would be a complete lie. Read the rest of this entry »

Dr. Dog at Music Hall of Williamsburg (January 10, 2015)

My introduction to Philadelphia rockers Dr. Dog came nearly a decade ago when they opened for The Raconteurs at Roseland Ballroom way back in 2006. It’s hard to believe that happened so many years ago, but what’s even crazier is seeing how far Dr. Dog have come in that period of time. They’re now a beloved act that is fully capable of playing eight consecutive shows in New York City, and selling them out. Now they’re the ones able to carefully select bright up-and-coming bands such as The Districts to open up for them, giving us a little glimpse of the future along the way. This is what went down at Music Hall of Williamsburg this past Saturday night, during the 2nd of Dr. Dog’s 4×4 shows at both Music Hall and Bowery Ballroom.

Dr. Dog at The Hudson Project 2014

By Will Oliver, July 14th 2014

This weekend saw the inaugural year of The Hudson Project kick off in Saugerties, New York. It’s about a hour and a half drive from my home in Rockland County, so probably a little over two hours for those of you in the city. I only managed to make it up to day 1, and based on the rain and issues yesterday, this seemed like a good decision.

My day started with a rock solid performance from Philadelphia’s finest, Dr. Dog. Believe it or not, it was my first time catching the band since I saw them open up for The Raconteurs back in September of 2006, which seems like a lifetime ago now. I don’t know how I let it go that long, but I finally made up for it at the festival.

It was like seeing the band for the first time. They’ve come a long way since then. Gone was the wacky rowdier ramshackle version of Dr. Dog that my fading memory recollects. In their place was a tighter, more polished band who are suddenly veterans on the scene. This is a band who deliver mature harmonies and songs that were perfect for a sunny afternoon at a music festival. Singer/guitarist Scott McMicken wasn’t sure what year of the festival it was (until the crowd told him it was the first), but he hoped that they would someday be invited back.

The fate of The Hudson Project may be up in the air, but the future of Dr. Dog is as solidified and steady as they come. I can’t wait to see them again soon and sure hope it doesn’t take another eight years.
