Show Review: Bon Iver At The Mann Center, Philadelphia

Sunday evening was the most beautiful type of night.  Dusk brought with it a chill in the air, but just the right amount of it – that no-longer-summer-but-not-quite-fall evening when you can wear jeans and a hoodie and be perfectly comfortable.  And what better way to spend such a night than outside listening to beautiful music?

Dr. Dog Talks New Music And Philly At Outside Lands

Another highlight for me at Outside Lands 2012 was on Saturday when I had the opportunity to talk with drummer Eric Slick of Dr. Dog before their Saturday evening show at the Panhandle Stage. I have been a big fan of them since their first album and they have grown tremendously since then to become one of the best bands to come out of Philly, while still maintaining their own unique identity and sound. In the opening moments of the interview we figured out that we actually grew up in the same neighborhood in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia – at the same time! They are currently touring in support of their latest album Be The Void, but I found out we don’t have much longer to wait before we get more new music from Dr. Dog! Read on for our chat with Eric at Outside Lands. Read More
