Dr. Dog w/ Givers The Orange Peel, Asheville, NC
Thursday, March 15 9pm $18 TICKETS
I’m sure you’ve heard this band at some point in your music listening careers. They have been going hard since 1999 and they proved that they’re still going with their February release of Be The Void. This album takes everything that is Dr. Dog and amplifies it. It’s loud, it’s catchy, and it’s passionate. On Thursday, they are going to bring all the energy from the record and blow it up onto a stage. I have never seen Dr. Dog before but I have only heard the best from their live performance. I already know of quite a few people driving up from South Carolina to go to this show and you should too. It will be a great show to see to help recover from the fact that you are not as SXSW this week.
Givers are a band who got a lot of buzz last year with their album In Light released by Glassnote Records. This show at The Orange Peel will actually be their last show before playing Coachella in April so I am expecting something pretty incredible. In Light was in WUSC’s charts for quite a while last year and since then they have been touring pretty heavily. Once again, I have not seen them live but I have heard that they are wild and full of energy on stage.
