Dr. Dog with The Knights

  • Prospect Park Bandshell 9th Street & Prospect Park West

DR. DOG’s mix of crunching psychedelic fuzz, Beach Boys-esque harmonies, and shimmery pop hooks have made them both one of the most accessible and most beguiling rock bands of the last decade—their “sun-drenched, feel-good vibe belies songs as full of personal conviction.” (Paste) Given the Bandshell as a blank slate for the night, they’ve brought in the Brooklyn orchestra collective THE KNIGHTS to blow out the sound of their own catalogue to previously unexplored emotional frequencies.

THE KNIGHTS are an orchestra of friends from a broad spectrum of the New York music world who are deeply committed to creating original, engaging musical experiences. Led by an open-minded spirit of camaraderie and collaboration, they seek to engage with contemporary culture through vibrant performances that honor the classical tradition and their own passion for musical discovery.
