There’s nothing uptight and pretentious about Dr. Dog: the Philly-based rock band play no-frills rock & roll with a debt to alt-country and Sixties pop. At the start of their career, the band were studio wizards, layering tracks on top of tracks to create dizzying soundscapes. In recent years, though, the band has shifted their focus towards creating a rawer, more immediate sound on record. It’s worked well for them on their most recent records, though it helps that Dr. Dog have always been a dynamic live act. Fans in Phoenix will be able to find that out for themselves when Dr. Dog come to the Crescent Ballroom; for more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
