Architecture in Helsinki - Heart It Races (Dr. Dog Cover)

Why do we like this?
From those who bought Toothbrush when Dr. Dog debuted back in 2002 to fans that discovered the band via their undeniably catchy cover of Architecture in Helsinki's "Heart It Races," the sold-out crowd at Chicago's Riviera Theater Saturday night came to escape the city's never-ending cold and find a party.

The Philadelphia-based band's festive stage setup lent itself to that goal, including a giant half-circle backdrop draped in shiny, green streamers, an old marquee sign "“ like the type you'd see outside a church or a drive-in movie "“ that read "A Couple Two Tree Dogs," and two giant rugs upon which bassist Toby Leaman and lead guitarist Scott McMicken jumped on top of while alternating vocal duty.

It was Leaman and McMicken who formed Dr. Dog during their formative years, and after steadily growing from album to album, the band now  has seven records and several EPs under their collective belt. Saturday's setlist pulled from that diverse catalog, with Be The Void's "That Old Black Hole" kicking the night off, Toothbrush's "Say Ahh" serving as a halfway point in the 90-minute, 21-song set, and Fate's "The Rabbit, The Bat, and The Reindeer" closing out a generous five-song encore.

The energy of the night alternated between drowsy lulls during songs like "Too Weak To Ramble" and excited sing-alongs to tracks such as "Lonesome." The now six-piece band continues to grow and Saturday's set proved their ability to entertain the growing size of their crowds.
