Photos: Dr. Dog, Hop Along at Marquee Theatre
The Marquee Theatre in Tempe welcomed Dr. Dog and special guest, Hop Along, on Tuesday, Feb. 16. Hop Along opened the sold-out show by pumping up the audience with some of the best angsty freak rock I’ve ever heard. The frontwoman’s vocal melodies were incredibly precise despite her Cobain-ish style singing.
After a quick break, Dr Dog opened its set with “These Days,” from 2012’s Be the Void. The show continued with a delightful variance of old fan favorites and soon-to-be hits from its latest effort, The Psychedelic Swamp. Fun fact: Dr. Dog first wrote Psychedelic Swap in 2000 but never officially released it.
A highlight of the show featured Arizona native and saxophone beast, Jeff Grubic AKA Mr. Tidypaws, who is also featured on the recorded version of “Engineer Says.” After a three song encore, Dr. Dog finished off the night with “Lonesome” and left the crowd wanting more.
