Nicky Devine Dr. Dog plays it safe, the American way
House of Blues, Dallas

Dr. Dog are quite good at what they do, as they proved in a tight set last night at the House of Blues. But, as even their fans will likely admit, what they do is recycle, repackage, rearrange, and recreate the sounds of late '60s and early '70s pop/rock, from The Beatles to Crosby, Stills, & Nash. To most of the folks in attendance, it's safe to say such faithful revivalism is a decently valuable commodity, but that fact is already enough to shed some light on the central demographic we're dealing with here.
