The Wild Honey Pie and Shure are excited to share the premiere of this video since we're both huge fans of Dr. Dog, the six-piece rock band out of Philly. In early January 2015, for eight nights, the band played Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg and Manhattan's Bowery Ballroom. They transformed the venues into the fictitious Flamingo Hotel of 1950s Miami Beach, with a huge pink flamingo on stage and palm trees in the crowd. Take a look, and be transported...
When this was filmed, Dr. Dog was preparing for a national tour and the release of a live album. With time to spare between soundcheck and doors, the band knocked out a couple old tunes for the cameras, “100 Years” and “Be The Void,” and even found some time to crush some Dr. Dog custom pizza pies from the iconic Two Boots Pizza.
The band tours with a full Shure microphone set up, allowing the audio engineers from The Wild Honey Pie to simply take a split from the stage box into their hard disk recorders and push Record. The result was a crystal clear recording of the band’s performance from the stage.
