Sick dog

The Dr. Dog show at Sound Fix tonight is cancelled and the shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom have been rescheduled for August. Refunds available at point of purchase or you can use your tickets on the new date. Music Hall is now August 26th. Bowery is August 27th. Toby lost his voice. A letter from the band below...


Hey Folks
There's no way to say this and make it sound good. We have to reschedule the two NYC shows cause Toby is still not able to sing. He is getting better very quickly but there are pieces of voice that just aren't there yet.. like they don't make any sound... it's weird. This is really shitty on all kinds of levels not the least of which is that there are some people that have been planning on coming to these shows for months... including us.

We came up to New York today to meet with a vocal coach in the hopes that she could help Toby get back up to speed but it just did not go the way we hoped it would go. This is a really hard decision to make because any way we look at it it feels like we're letting people down. That said, a Dr Dog show without Toby singing is not a Dr Dog show.

We're really sorry this is happening and we know we're putting a lot of people out. The rescheduled dates are below and we hope you can come. If you cannot, the price of your tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. If you can make the shows just bring your tickets and if you have Will Call tickets they will be available at the door as usual.

Music Hall of Williamsburg is being moved to August 26th
Bowery Ballroom is being moved to August 27th

The instore scheduled for today at Soundfix has been canceled.

In others news.. Fate came out today and while we wish we were able to celebrate we're still really excited for people to hear it. We can't wait to start playing this stuff live.. just have to wait a few more days I guess.

See you soon

That's what happens when you sing your heart out day in and day out.

The reason he can't sing is because he got punched in the throat..

anyone one want to swap tickets? I have 2 hard tickets in hand to the MHOW shows, and would rather hit up Bowery Ballroom on the rescheduled date.

this band was on the front cover of Relix magazine. We're only supposed to cover talentless indierock bands on this website, right?

Toby had to have a CAT scan, etc., and was instructed to go on complete vocal rest for a few days or he could do permanent damage to his vocal chords. He wasn't punched. It was an accident while white water rafting. They did Conan only because it was a 3 min. song and Scott sang. Hang in there. Listen to "Fate" before you go to see them...You will love them live.

It was a tubing accident, not white water rafting, but yes, the above comment is spot on. Dr. Dog would never lie about something like that. Take it from a witness of the unfortunate event. Fantastic album..take a listen.

Well, that was a very pleasurable 5 minutes I invested looking through your material, warm regards.
