    Feb 17, 2012 Dr. Dog performs in The Current studio.

It's hard to believe it's already been 13 years since Dr. Dog first started making music. Once considered an extremely underground act playing shows to support their Easy Beat album, their first for a record label in the early aughts, they've since gone on to tour alongside The Spinto Band, My Morning Jacket and The Raconteurs.

Dr. Dog's blend of psychedelic rock, heavily inspired by the freak-folk of the 60s and 70s, has now gained a sizable audience. They've moved from structured sonics to a looser and wilder style, indicative of their growth as a band in the past decade and a persistence in experimenting with a sound they perfected several albums ago.

Songs performed: "Old Black Hole," "Lonesome," and "Turning The Century."
