Dr Dog, Cotton Jones 

When: Mon., Nov. 5, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $20-22

Pairing vintage '60s and '70s pop-rock—think the Beatles—with a modern indie influence, veteran rockers Dr. Dog are instantly familiar even on first listen, though their knack for melodic gold makes them easily memorable on their own merits. Crafting shaggy garage soul with a rootsy heart, the quintet takes cues from classic acts like The Beach Boys and Big Star. But as the sterling track "Where'd All the Time Go?" proves, the band's nearly as likely to draw inspiration from contemporaries such as The Flaming Lips. The whimsical arrangements and warm co-ed harmonies of Maryland indie folkers Cotton Jones should win over plenty of converts, too. —Spencer Griffith
