That Dog Concert at the Troubadour, West Hollywood, August 28, 2011

Mime Crime opened. This troupe of mimes and a jester acted out performances of hard rock and heavy metal songs. Whenever anyone tried to sing along or clap, they shooshed the offenders. It was somewhat amusing. Let's leave it at that.

Next Maya Rudolph's Prince cover band Princess played a few songs.

That Dog (Anna Waronker, Petra Haden, Rachel Haden, and Tony Maxwell) played a mix of songs off all three of their albums. Here are a couple of favorites off their final album "Retreat From the Sun," one of the best albums of the 1990's in my humble opinion. Although it sounds like no widespread tour is planned, let's hope they work on some new material for the future!

"Never Say Never"


Here are a couple of videos of Anna Waronker's solo work:

"Beautiful" off Anna from 2002:

"How Am I Doing" off California Fade from 2011:

  1. Wow I hadn't heard they were back together! Loved 'Retreat from the Sun' and agree back in the 90s it was great! So happy I had a chance to see these guys live back then!

    Looks like it was a good show!
