Dr. Dog

Before sound check at Dr. Dog's recent Austin show at The Parish, I spoke with Scott McMicken. They were fresh from a highly praised Coachella set, and glad to be back in the comfort of a small venue. We discussed the chaos of a festival setting, the band's influences, and how they became a band. I did very little talking, except for inserting my nervous prose "right" and "gotcha" ever so often. These guys are a great band, and I really enjoyed hearing their back story...God bless My Morning Jacket.
