Dr. Dog’s Flamingo Hotel Tour

Dates are set for part one of Dr. Dog’s Flamingo Hotel Tour. The West Grove, Penn., indie rock band led by Toby Leaman and Scott McMicken will be busy in January and February with a routing taking them from the East Coast to the West and then to the Southwest.

The tour announcement follows last month’s news about “The Dr. Dog 4X4.” The guys have booked back-to-back residencies in New York at what they consider to be “two of the greatest small clubs in the country.” The 4X4 takes place Jan. 9-12 at Brooklyn’s Music Hall Of Williamsburg and Jan. 14-17 at the Bowery Ballroom.

Dr. Dog will stick around the East Coast for gigs in Vermont, New York and D.C., followed by a handful of Minnesota shows, but after that they’re looking forward to the weather out West.

“You may have picked up on the fact that we try to get out of the Northeast in February and after 2 weeks in NYC we thought having the warmer climes of the Southwest in our sights would be inspiring,” the band says.
