...Off The Leash!

Hello Dawg Fans,

It's a little unusual to have to set our alarm clocks to get up and start prepping for a gig. It's also rare that we wrap up a show day earlier than we would normally start our first set.  But when you have to load at 9:30 in the morning to drive and get set up for a 1:00pm show...that's what you do!

And it was all worth it to get to play a Labor Day show for Vincent's On The Lake.

This was our 3rd appearance at Vincent's, and our last for the band season there.  We had a really good crowd for the afternoon.  We got to see some co-workers, current and past.  Ken had a classmate who made the trip from Arlington to see the band.  And of course, some of the regulars came out to see what we are all about.

Paul brought the keys out and Ken doubled on bass.  We kicked off with The Beatles "Get Back".  We decided we needed a nautical-themed song, so Blues Image "Ride Captain Ride" made an appearance on the setlist.  Toward the end of the show, we brought out Aerosmith's "Sweet Emotion" and closed the afternoon out with The Stones "Satisfaction".

Once again, we want to thank Vincent's for having us during their inaugural season, and we hope to see you again next.  Also props to Black Hole Talent for making these shows happen for us.

We've got a private party in a couple of weeks.

Our next public show will be Friday, October 14th at Shenanigans Nightclub on Pond Springs Road in Austin.  We always enjoy playing on the big stage there, and we're sure we'll have a new tune or two by then.  Showtime will be 8:00pm.  See out gigs page for more info.

Thanks for keeping this Dawg thing going!

Dana, Ken, Dan & Paul
