Lollapalooza Spotlight: Dr. Dog
Dr. Dog is a rock band from Pennsylvania consisting of 5 members. Formed in 1999 the band has gone through a few member changes, but currently Scott McMicken, Toby Leaman, Zach Miller, Erin Slick, and Frank McElroy create the psychedelic rock sound that defines the band. You can definitely hear a 1960s rock influence in the band’s sound. In 2004 the band was invited on two tours by My Morning Jacket after passing a copy of Toothbrush, their 2nd album, to Jim James (lead vocalist and song writer of My Morning Jacket). Since then they have tour across the US and made several appearances on late night shows with comedic personalities David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O’Brien.
The band has made a few stops through Chicago selling out The Vic Theater on a few occasions. They will be playing a sold out pre party show with Kevin Devine, and The Dunwells at Lincoln Hall August 2nd as part of the Lollapalooza weekend.
Dr.Dog will play at Lollapalooza on Friday August 3rd
