Dr. Dog Reschedules NYC Dates
Dr. Dog had been slated to perform at The Bowery Ballroom and The Music Hall of Williamsburg on Wednesday and Thursday. However, due to what is described as a minor throat injury to bassist Toby Leahman, these shows have now been rescheduled for August, with the Music Hall of Williamsburg show now set for August 26 and the Bowery Ballroom gig to take place on the 27th. The Dr. Dog tour will now open on Saturday, July 26th in Rochester, NY.
The band itself has commented on the situation, explaining:
_There’s no way to say this and make it sound good. We have to reschedule the two NYC shows cause Toby is still not able to sing. He is getting better very quickly but there are pieces of voice that just aren’t there yet.. like they don’t make any sound… it’s weird. This is really shitty on all kinds of levels not the least of which is that there are some people that have been planning on coming to these shows for months… including us. _
We came up to New York today to meet with a vocal coach in the hopes that she could help Toby get back up to speed but it just did not go the way we hoped it would go. This is a really hard decision to make because any way we look at it it feels like we’re letting people down. That said, a Dr Dog show without Toby singing is not a Dr Dog show.
We’re really sorry this is happening and we know we’re putting a lot of people out. The rescheduled dates are below and we hope you can come. If you cannot, the price of your tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. If you can make the shows just bring your tickets and if you have Will Call tickets they will be available at the door as usual.
The Cold Turkey private show, described below, will be rescheduled for late August as well and folks can still register for the opportunity to see the group at that performance.
