With humble origins as a lo-fi recording project from Philly, Dr. Dog has blossomed into today’s great ambassadors of psychedelic music. The band’s seven studio records careen between blissful 60’s pop and guitar-led indie rock, recalling The Zombies and Dinosaur Jr., by turns. The band is here fresh off the release of Live at the Flamingo Hotel: “19 swaggering, giddy takes on fan favorites.” (Rolling Stone)

The Sun Parade works in the great American rock tradition, smuggling rogue love and existential urgency into the room on get-happy grooves. The band’s new EP Heart’s Outdelivers on the promise of earlier songwriting with a catalog of love collisions; casual sandwich obsession; and Northern, psychedelic, basement guitar licks. Influences of Afro-pop, Elliott Smith, bluegrass brother harmonies, and four gents from Liverpool.

Based in Northampton, Mass. since 2011, The Sun Parade has been steadily creating a buzz in New England and a grassroots following of fans across the country. In 2012, The Sun Parade released a full-length LP Yossis and the single Need You By My Side, a regional hit voted the #1 song by WRSI 93.9 The River. In 2014, they released the joyful pop EP Heart’s Out and toured the road, including a host of shows with their pals Lake Street Dive.
