11.10: Dr. Dog + The Felice Brothers + Quiet Life – Tipitina’s

Many New Orleanians have a special place in their hearts for Dr. Dog.  After the five-piece Philadelphia psychedelic roots rock band self-recorded and released two albums of feel-good space-pop that caught the attention of Jim James and led to multiple supporting runs with My Morning Jacket, NO native Christopher Watson started much-loved local independent record label Park The Van Records to help release and distribute their 2004 breakout Easy Beat.  The album garnered widespread acclaim for the band’s endlessly creative studio prowess – which mixed 1960’s-style songcraft with the shiny lo-fi sensibilities of early 90s indie-rock – and spawned a nationwide tour that brought their dynamic stage show to the masses.  But even as Dr. Dog’s profile grew and Park The Van relocated to a Philly suburb in the wake of Katrina, their connection to New Orleans remained strong: local label mates like Generationals and Giant Cloud would often tag along on the band’s increasingly frequent tours, which dependably passed through town on a very regular basis.

In their first New Orleans show since a magical – and free – concert in the Tulane LBC quad last summer, Dr. Dog will be joined by The Felice Brothers, real-life siblings who cut their teeth busking on the subway platforms of lower Manhatthan – New York City’s version of our own lively street performance tradition.  Portland’s L.A. Canyon Rock revivalists Quiet Life open.
