Dr. Dog

With its “White Album”-style eclectic accessibility, catchy hooks and jubilant approach, Dr. Dog is the perfect pick for a hip indie band to take on the fair’s not-so-hip but fun Bandshell Tonight series. The Philly rockers’ two-night stand at First Ave in February was a blast, but their performance last summer with the Avett Brothers at Somerset Amphitheater proved how much more joyous and sunny songs such as “These Days” and “Shadow People” sound outdoors. Highly recommended. Chris Riemenschneider
