Philadelphian new wave psych rockers Dr. Dog are back in Nashville and ready to tear the roof off The Ryman Auditorium this Saturday, April 2 with Americana-tinged indie pop band Wild Child. If you missed out on our ticket giveaway or are just a procrastinator, you’re in luck! You can still snag a few tickets for just $32.50, so why miss out on the chance to see one of Philadelphia’s best modern day exports? Click below to find out more about the lineup before you head out to soak up some tunes at the Mother Church this weekend.
Possibly born in the wrong decade, the members of Dr. Dog have produced some of the best lo-fi psychedelic rock, and Beatles inspired harmonies, since the ‘60s. Over the last fifteen years, the Philly born band have put out an impressive catalog, including the kickass live album we told you about last year, and now a re-issue of their funk soaked self-released debut record, The Psychedelic Swamp. That album was never released properly in its first incarnation, and now, with he help of The Pig Iron Theatre Company, Dr. D have presented it in theatrical form (with a 30 member cast and massive production budget) much to both rock fans’ and theatre goers’ delight. To start 2016, the fellas are embarking on a fairly massive tour across the U.S. (musical, not theatrical), and we assure you, they are a band you need to see in person to truly appreciate. Good news is you’ll never have a better chance than when they take over The Ryman once again this weekend, so be there or risk missing out on one of the best shows of the year! Doctor’s orders.
Fiercely indiependent road warriors Wild Child are a collective of Americana and indie pop inspired musicians who march to their own beat. Featuring violin, ukulele, cello, drums, bass, trumpet, and keyboard, their sound has an old-timmey feel while still remaining as fresh as anything we’ve heard in the scene for a long while. Their latest release, Fools (Dualtone records) is worthy of heavy rotation in your winter playlist, so have a sample below, and get to The Ryman on time to see their opening set.
Dr. Dog, and Wild Child will perform Saturday, April 2 at The Ryman Auditorium. The show is all ages, begins at at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available for $32.50.
