DR. DOG, THE COMPLEX, Friday, March 7, 8 p.m., $20 advance
Philadelphia-based Dr. Dog have spent the past few years establishing themselves as an elite live band, one capable of turning newcomers and casual observers at their shows into fervent true believers. Now the band could be well on its way to making its recordings as memorable as its concerts. To put together their new album, B-Room, the band first built its own recording studio in an old mill. Then they used the space to create an album full of soulful tunes that blend their own rock moves with some of the classic soul sounds of their hometown. Mostly recorded live, B-Room could easily become the Dr. Dog album that makes them more than simply a great live act.
