Bird Dog rolled out this video for "Until the Sadness is Gone" on July 22nd via the blog Audiofiles. It's pretty straightforward, consisting of a simple street performance by the quartet, but goddamn if it doesn't inspire a wave of well-or-mis-placed feels to see a band of bros demonstrating their ability to pull some gear out of their van and make their 'Muricana magic happen anytime, and anywhere. Its a very organic representation of the lifestyle, right down to the beer bottle on the floorboards in the background that makes me want to grow a moustache, pack up my guitar and head for the sunset. Bird Dog found their way to Nashville from New Braufels, TX, further upholding this city as the Ellis Island of the industry. They showcase their brand of dusky Southern rock on their album, "Age of Anxiety," released independently thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign. It's crunchy and gritty with an undercurrent of pathos, kind of like an ice cream cone dropped in the red dirt of their homeland. However, their own description of "Lowdown chooglin' Americana" probably does Bird Dog the most justice. The band is going to be performing in at The End on September 18th. -Terra James-Jura
