Smart Bets: Dr. Dog

Although they live in Philadelphia, indie-rockers Dr. Dog are pretty much honorary Asheville residents. The band makes a WNC stop annually-ish (sometimes more often, like when they headlined Bele Chere in 2012). On the heels of last year's dramatic and expansive Be The Void, the band just released B Room. According to a press release, that album represents the group's "greatest point of clarity in more than a decade of performing and recording. Their arrangements, while still ambitious, are much simpler, moving past the multi-tracked pastiche of earlier efforts into a unique and vibrant band voice." Dr. Dog plays The Orange Peel on Sunday, Nov. 3, with Benny Yurco and the Revealers. 9 p.m. $20/$22. Photo by Nicky Devine
