During the nostalgic indie rock outfit’s recent two-night layover in San Francisco, Dr. Dog was able to sell out both nights at the Great American Music Hall, an admirable feat for any group, considering S.F. is home to a good amount of smug music snobs who consider obscure forms of brash noise to be the apex of musical artistry.
This was my first time catching a proper Dr. Dog show, as I had only really seen them at festivals or as openers prior. There was an unbelievable confidence level in the playing that night, and the set, song selection, and every rock gesture seemed so at-ease and completely polished at the same time. It was a wild good time.
I haven’t had my proper photo passes lately so apologize for the artistic grainy photos from my iPhone. Anyone else catch the two-night run?
