Pennsylvania indie rockers Dr. Dog finally bottled up some of the magic of their live shows and put it into Live at a Flamingo Hotel, the band’s latest release and first live album. The 19-track album was recorded over the course of a 20-show tour in 2014 and features songs from six of the band’s seven studio albums. One of those songs is “The Rabbit, The Bat and The Reindeer,” an uptempo toe-tapper from the band’s 2008 album Fate that guitarist and singer Scott McMicken wrote as an exercise in hating someone.
“This song has long been a favorite of ours to play and it’s always seemed like a crowd favorite too,” says McMicken. “Our buddy Coach made this video. He’s done a lot of stuff for us over the past few years and he keeps getting better at it. There’s a lot that happens at a show over the course of this one song and he did a great job of capturing that energy.”
