DR. DOG TOUR & ALBUM


Dr. Dog
The good Dr. Dog is set to leave the cold confines of their Philadelphia home to head out across the country in support of their upcoming release, We All Belong (available 2/27 on Park The Van Records).

This will be the five-piece rock band's first headlining tour (after opening slots for folks like My Morning Jacket, Architecture in Helsinki, Ambulance Ltd and the Raconteurs). Look for them at your favorite local venues as well as Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Bonnaroo.

Dr. Dog


Dr. Dog has been creating music in various incarnations for a good four years now. Beginning with The Psychedelic Swamp, a concept album realized in the damp ruin of a flooded basement with waterlogged guitars and a digital delay pedal, the band has simmered on the back burner of our musical lives for most of its existence but we've recently renewed our resolve to forge ahead and give Dr. Dog the attention we think it deserves.


Although Dr. Dog has as many as 20 honorary "members" who have assisted in various (mostly spiritual) capacities through the years, the core of the band consists of five musicians. Our standard instrumentation includes two guitars, bass, drums, keyboard and three part harmonies. The Beach Boys, Beatles, Tom Waits, David Bowie and Neil Young are influences, but we would be remiss in not acknowledging our debt to Pavement, Palace Brothers, R. Stevie Moore or Roy Wood.


Currently, the lineup is as such: Toby Leaman on bass and singing, Scott McMicken on woof mud distortion solo guitar and voice, Andrew Jones on lean clean occasionally tremolo'd guitar, Juston Stens on trapset and harmonies and Zach Miller on keyboard(s). We've all done our share of playing. Toby and Scott have played together in a myriad of bands including Raccoon, Unleash the Bastards, and Beard; Andrew played bass in Raccoon and manages the phenomenal The Teeth; Zach has played with Bradford Trojan and Traffic Jam and studied jazz guitar; and Juston is the man behind the punk outfits It's Turbo Time and Oddnormal.


We've played around Philadelphia at a good number of places, including the TLA, North Star, the Fire, Khyber, Mill Creek Tavern and Doc Watson's, the Lucky Cat and StarFoods (Brooklyn and Manhattan, respectively), Rex's (West Chester, PA),. We have accompanied My Morning Jacket on two short tours, - the second of which also featured M. Ward - who personally requested that Dr. Dog open for them.


Aside from the aforementioned Swamp album - a self-produced, self-recorded low-fi four track recording - we have two other recordings. Toothbrush is a compilation of fourth generation eight-track recordings culled from the past few years. Easy Beat was recorded earlier this year and is our first proper album.

Ticket Price: $10
Price at the Door: $12
Type of Show: Standing Show

Dont sweat it, Philly... Wilco always releases their national tour dates with no chicago, then mid-tour they announce a 3 day run at the very end... it must be some 'rock star home town' thing or somethin!

Everyone: You have to check out this band that I saw in Knoxville a few nights ago. Their name is G-Roc. It is a guy who plays electronic drums and a keyboard player who lays down loops. They are freakin' awesome! I am personally going to tell everyone I know to check them out. Peace!

So, I saw these guys in Orlando, and I was impressed. I can see the beatles/beach boys influence, the sound is tough to describe, imo, definitely worth a listen.
