2017 seems to be the year of the music festival.  With new festivals like Desert Daze and Burger Boogaloo gaining traction, the stalwarts have upped the ante on their lineups, boasting unique and eclectic selections of damn fine music. FYF Fest has come a long way from its meager Echo Park beginnings and from July 21st to 23rd it will once again take over Exposition Park in Los Angeles this year and damn if they haven’t booked one hell of a lineup.

Dr. Dog

Dr. Dog

Moses Sumney was a sentimental surprise as he kicked off the evening.  His emotional acoustic and soulful balladry lifted everyone to the smiling, smooth side of  R&B.   His performance gave an opening emotional dynamic to the show by allowing a vulnerable, emotional connection to what was yet to come.

Just prior to Dr. Dog was Saint Rich.     Saint Rich, a New Jersey skateboarding enthusiast, had an eccentric life stage performance.  Complimented with the musical harmony but not to duplicate Dr.Dog.

Closing the exciting Noise Pop Festival was – Dr. Dog.    When their fans packed the Warfield,  Dr. Dog knew exactly how to respond with current favorites  “The Truth” and “Lonesome” while blending in a favorites from the past such as “These Days” and “Oh No”.

Dr. Dog certainly has a loyal fan club in the Bay Area.  The simple reason is, each of their albums sequentially build on the one before while remaining true to the original unique sound.   Each performance enhances an appreciation of their vintage harmonizing sound.  Still true to the east coast vibe; yet, unique enough to remain unclassified from the common pop and indie trend.  Just one of many reasons Dr. Dog will remain a Bay Area favorite.
