Cravin’ Dogs’ Holidaze Spectacular at The Deej

Dec 7, 8 PM

The Deej, 1409 Ingraham St NW, Washington, DC 20011

the deej has presented many artists over the years, but a band we have always admired has escaped our intentions — until now.  At long last, the deej is honored to host Cravin’ Dogs on December 7th!

Cravin Dogs began as a gonzo-folk trio in 1986. Founding members Caldwell Gray (guitar/vocals), Lisa Venable Gray (vocals) and Tom Helf (drums) crafted a sparse brand of rock and roll that used acoustic guitar, drums and harmony-driven vocals to create a unique blend of folk, rock, 80s new wave and bluegrass.

Cravin Dogs has since evolved into an all-original, eclectic, rootsy, rock/pop-outfit that has played over 1000 shows and released nine full-length albums, one EP and two compilation retrospectives.

GLOSSER Releases Deluxe Edition of Debut Record, DOWNER

The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
