Dogs on Acid

Left & Right Crank the Gas at A House Named Virtue June 21

Left & Right have a sound that etches into one’s system. With songs that provide unaltered snapshots, developed at varying tempos, the band can ride a slow-burner that gradually gathers musical steam in a subdued yet emotionally poignant place or crank the gas to full blast and accelerate the process, cooking up pummeling backend. As we await the release of their forthcoming album, Dogs on Acid is set to perform as is the roaring, riff-tastic pop-punk trio Thin Lips, whose EP Divorce Year is in constant rotation. Austin psych-pop quintet The Sour Notes fills out this evening's lineup. A House Named Virtue, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, All Ages - Michael Colavita

New Track: "The Substitute" (The Who Cover) - Dogs on Acid

Dogs on Acid just shared their cover of The Who's "Substitute," over at Brooklyn Vegan. The recording is for a compilation entitled Teenagers In Love that will be available digitally on April 14 via Known Pleasure Records. The song was originally released as a single in 1966, and it later also found its way on a compilation album, Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy, before being re-issued once again in 1976. Dogs On Acid will be releasing their debut LP this summer via Jade Tree Records, and they're next show in Philly is currently schedule for Monday, April 27 at Johnny Brenda's, but we wouldn't be surprised if they popped up on another local bill before then.


Dogs on Acid w/The Spirit of the Beehive at Boot & Saddle Feb. 11

After releasing their debut tracks via Ranch Records, local four-piece Dogs on Acid (featuring Peter Helmis, Joe Reinhart and Nick Tazza formerly of Algernon Cadwallader as well as Nate Dionne of Snowing) recently shared “Flushed,” which is one half of their forthcoming 7” via Asian Man Records. The song's tumbling melodic momentum makes it a natural stuck-in-your-head rocker that leaves you wanting more. They'll be headlining Boot & Saddle this evening, which will be their second show in Philly this week, and if you didn't make it to the First Unitarian Church on Monday or did and just couldn't get enough of Dogs on Acid, well, here's your opportunity to check them out in one of the best sounding rooms in Philly. They'll be joined by The Spirit of the Beehive, who play a range of highs and lows finding an unexpected middle ground between soothing hypnotic astral dream-pop and a denser, shoegazing atmosphere, filled with ever volatile stormy instrumentation that lies in waiting. The group's musical outlook inhabits darkly clouded sonic terrain. In its intermediate lighter moments, the clouds soften revealing transitions of calm; however, behind that ray of light lies a persistent unforgiving torrential roar. Whether one prefers the calm or the storm, it’s easy to get sucked in. Also along for the ride are relative pop-punk newcomers Quit, who open a night full of intrigue that promises to catapult you toward the weekend. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Dogs on Acid Opening for Joyce Manor at Union Transfer Sept. 17

Dogs on Acid (great band name!) is the latest project from Algernon Cadwallader's Peter Helmis and Joe Reinhart. The band has been playing out for a bit now, and they just released their first 7" last month via Ranch Records, which was recorded by Reinhart at his studio The Headroom. They also have another one coming out soon so stay tuned! Dogs on Acid will be performing on the big stage of Union Transfer this evening when they open for Joyce Manor and The Exquisites alongside fellow labelmates and Philadelphians, The Spirit of the Beehive.

Philly Summer Fest at PhilaMOCA Aug. 9

PhilaMOCA hosts another summer Saturday barbecue fest today with Dogs on Acid (ex-Algernon Cadwallader) and friends. This one will also be the album release party for fast-paced, sludge punks Cassilis. It will be a good chance to catch garage-pop trio Amanda X (if somehow you missed all the group’s bazillion local performances this summer), before they embark on a U.S. tour, and find out why so many people have been raving about their debut album Amnesia. Hardcore noise duo Bubonic Bear will bring an ample serving of guitar-laden chaos, and Mike Bell & the Movies will deliver an upbeat dose of melodic indie pop. The show will also feature The Weaks, Sleep Study, and more. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 3:30pm, $10, All Ages - Bill McThrill
