After enjoying some downtime after summer festival sets at Bonnaroo and Sasquatch, Philadelphia harmony masters, Dr. Dog, have just announced two dozen new dates in support of Shame, Shame the not so-lo-fi gem they put out this spring.
Their voyage starts north of the border in Toronto, then weaves its way through the Northeast and Midwest en route to the Rocky Mountains before hitting up the great Northwest, where Eugene, Ore. is the lucky recipient of a Dr. Dog Halloween show. We cant think of a better band or reason to let go and dress up as some kind of furry animal.
The tour then makes its way down the Golden State starting with a two-night stand at the Fillmore in San Francisco, and the good news for our Arizona readers is that youre going to actually get to go to a show The band is leaving the boycott business at home and playing the Orpheum Theater in Flagstaff on November 11th. Thats pretty kick-ass for music fans in the Copper State, but whats better is who is assisting the doctor for the duration of the tour.
Brooklyns own dream-pop quintet, Here We Go Magic, will play support for all but two dates on the 24-stop-soiree and joining them for eight west coast dates will be fellow brotherly lovers, Good Old War. No telling if Dr. Dog will join their Philly Friends on stage, but the harmonies would be sick.
A limited number of presale tickets are available on the bands website through July 15 with service charges maxing out at $4. If thats still not cheap enough for you, then find a way to get to the Big Apple on August 15 because Dog, M.D. will be playing a free show at Governors Island.
Otherwise, check out this video of the band playing the press tent at Bonnaroo, then head over to Ticketmaster.com starting Friday, July 16th and cop your tickets.
