Locals Only Playlist: The Moondoggies play live in-studio

September 7, 2016

When I invited The Moondoggies by the studio for Locals Only this last Sunday I didn't really know what I was getting into. Last time Kevin came by he played a couple of songs on acoustic guitar and I thought maybe we would do something like that again.

What actually happened is four of the five Moondoggies (Caleb, Carl, Jon and Kevin) were in studio and they brought with them two guitars, a shaker, a tambourine and some sort of mini synth that I certainly don't know anything about. This all lead to what is now my favorite in-studio session to take place on Locals Only. You can bet we will be doing more of this in the future. 

While the guys were here we talked about their 10-Year Birthday Party shows coming up on the 22nd and 23rd of September at the Tractor Tavern. Night one The Moondoggies will be joined by our Locals Only Artist Of The Month, Lonely Mountain Lovers, and Pampa. On night two they will be joined by Jackalope Saints and Great Spiders. The Moondoggies are also releasing a vinyl reissue of their first record Don't Be A Stranger that includes five previously unreleased songs. Yeah, the quintessential Moondoggies record just got five more songs and you can finally own it on vinyl (Steven breaks into a four hour praise dance).
