"AT THE THAT DOG REUNION SHOW OMG THEY ARE THE BEST!!!!" - @cassieramone
As mentioned before, it's 90's Week in NYC, with Garbarge and Afghan Whigs making big returns to the stage and the flannel-era hat trick was completed last night at Music Hall of Williamsburg with alt-rockers that dog. I was never a giant fan, but I knew more songs that I thought I would, and the band sounded great, nailing those close, three part harmonies -- and Petra Haden's violin is still a force. The crowd was really singing along and that dog. were in great spirits too, especially bassist Rachel Haden and drummer Tony Maxwell who both cracked jokes the whole night. Anna Waronker was her sarcastic self too, though tempered a bit by motherhood, cutely saying hi to her baby in the balcony between songs. An extended, five-song encore brought the set to 22 songs, about an hour and a half. The crowd really didn't want it to end.
Of course, they can go to see that dog play again tonight (5/25) at MHoW -- tickets are still available.
Speaking of cracking jokes, ex-SNL castmember (and ex- Petra Hayden bf) Fred Armisen opened the show with a loose, very funny, music-based set, where he did impressions of Elvis Costello, a man at a doo-wop concert in the '50s, and some audience participation too, some of it unwanted. Kurt Braunohler opens tonight's show.
that dog.'s MHoW setlist is below.
As reported previously, '90s alt-rockers that dog. are playing Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 24, the band's first NYC show in 15 years with Fred Armisen opening. That show sold out and the band added a second MHoW show the next night, Friday, May 25 with comedian openers Kurt Braunohler and Baron Vaughn. Tickets are still available to that one.
If you'd like to go for free, we're giving away a pair of tickets to the show of your choice. Details are below.
Oh, and speaking of Kurt Braunohler, he isn't playing the "Tell Your Friends! It's The Spring Fling!" at the Bell House tonight (5/15), but his partner in crime Kristen Schaal is along with host Liam McEneaney and fellow comedians Janeane Garofalo and Christian Finnegan, plus musical guest Hand Job Academy. Tickets are still available.

And the '90s reunions just keep coming! that dog. will play their first NYC show in 15 years on Thursday, May 24 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Their old pal Fred Armisen will open. Tickets are on sale this Friday (3/9) at noon (though AmEx presale starts today at noon).
The progeny of LA music biz folks, that dog. formed in 1991 and released three albums of poppy punk, distinguished in part by Petra Haden's scratchy violin playing. "He's Kissing Christian" and "Never Say Never" were staples on alt-rock radio and 120 Minutes. that dog. was put to sleep in 1997 after their third album but the original line-up got back together last August for two sold out hometown shows at the Troubador. Catch up via Spotify or watch a few of their classic videos (some directed by pal Spike Jonze) at the bottom of this post.
