I'm forgetting what Dog Day looks like and it's making me melancholy. So it's good news that they're finally coming home after their epic tour through Europe and North America to play Pop in Sessions at Common Ground Studio on Saturday, December 8 (email@example.com, $8). The group gave me some tidbits from the road, answering together as the crazy Borg-like collective they've turned into. "The most memorable things that instantly pop into mind were dodging a fight that broke out while watching Christian Death play in Hollywood, accidentally crashing an acid party in Nanaimo, BC, and playing on a beach on the Adriatic Sea. After spending some time with palm trees, we wish we were coming home during a nicer time of year."
