Dr. Dog

Dr. Dog has signed to Anti-Records (home of Os Mutantes), which will release the band’s fifth record in early 2010. What does Dr. Dog guitarist-vocalist Scott McMicken have to say about that?

“Each album we’ve made was the best one we could have made at the time and I don’t have any regrets,” McMicken says. “But something has changed. We’ve never really recorded as a band before. We started as a recording project but over the years we’ve become a real band. We tour all the time and we have this certain place we fall into. And I think we’re ready to use that as a reference point now”

This fall Dr. Dog will go on an extensive North American tour, with a select number of dates opened by NYC’s own Jeffrey Lewis. No NYC dates yet though, but there are two in the band’s hometown of Philly, and one pre-tour gig in Bethlehem, PA.

Bethlehem Musikfest is a music festival that runs from July 31st to August 9th and consists of more than 300 performances, most of which are free (Dr. Dog on August 3rd included). Pay shows at the fest include a stop on the Pat Benatar/Blondie/The Donnas tour (which has a free Coney Island show on August 13th) and a show with the B-52s (also playing NYC) and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.

Dr. Dog’s last NYC show was also a free one. It took place at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn. We already posted a set of pictures from it. Now here’s another one, along with the full lineup for the Bethlehem Musikfest and all tour dates, below…
