Philadelphia pop-rock band Dr. Dog came to Range Recording Studios in Ardmore in last January for a recording session with "In the MixLive."
The band, led by Scott McMicken and Toby Leaman, was about to release Be the Void, its seventh album overall, starting with Psychedelic Swamp, a set recorded in McMicken's flooded basement in West Chester, Pa., back in 2001.
In the decade since, Dr. Dog has moved up in the world, and now records for the esteemed California indie label Anti- records, also home to Tom Waits, Merle Haggard and Philadelphia's Man Man. Dr. Dog,  will perform at the Electric Factory March 24 and 25.
