By rising to #1 on the NACC 200, Dr. Dog makes Hop Along the first artist to spend a single week on top in 2018.  Dr. Dog’s tenth release, Critical Equation, rises from 3-1 this week.  The Philadelphia-based band are currently on tour, supporting their Thirty Tigers release, with dates straight on through June, many being supported by (Sandy) Alex G.  Dr. Dog will have no shortage of competition for #1 next week with Speedy Ortiz (7-2) and King Tuff (6-3) moving into the Top 3 and two more competitors (who we will feature here as well) racing toward the top.  It will definitely be fun to see how it shakes out next week. read more…
