Have you heard yet? As Adam Gold would be happy to tell you
, I'm a pretty unabashed Dr. Dog fan — we call ourselves "Dog Doggies." OK, that last bit isn't true. Last we heard from the Dog, they were stopping in at Cannery on the heels of releasing Shame, Shame
, and I was all interviewin' 'em
, and they were all donatin' a bunch of the money from their show to flood relief
. Well, we're all fans of Live on the Green, yes? The "outdoor concert series, promoting live music, green initiative, and community engagement on the door step of our city courthouse"? As you'll see over at this here Facebook event page
, Dr. Dog are confirmed to play Sept. 16's Live on the Green event, along with beloved Murfreesboroan Southern rockers Glossary
and local folk-rock balladeers Apache Relay
. Before we go any further, I should probably mention that tomorrow night, Sept. 9, Live on the Green will feature performances from Tonic and Five for Fighting, neither of whom did I realize were still touring.
Back to the Dog. Since we're on the subject, Philly's favorite folk-flavored, fleet-fingered indie-rock outfit have just announced that they've "recorded a brand new batch of songs ... [that will] be available on a gatefold double 7-inch vinyl to be sold exclusively at venues on the upcoming fall tour." According to the press release, they were to release the first of these four tracks via their Facebook page yesterday, Sept. 7, with "additional tracks in the coming month." I've been checking and checking again, but I'm still not seeing any new tunes on their page. I've put in a query to their people, but for now, just get pumped about seeing them for free alongside Glossary and Apache Relay a week from tomorrow.
Alright, in order to download the new track, "Take Me Into Town," you have to install a third-party program called VoxBloc on Facebook that will post a status update on your wall. Mild hassle for a pretty good free download.
