Creative Allies Launches Live Web Concerts Series With Dr. Dog On April 25

"Creative Allies is pleased to announce the first in a monthly series of live web concerts powered by Ustream. The concerts will take place on a professional-grade sound stage at Ex'pression College for Digital Arts in Emeryille, CA. Philadelphia-based Dr. Dog will perform for the first session on Sunday, April 25th at 3pm PST/6pm EST. Produced by Creative Allies and Ex'pression College, the performances will be streamed live on Creative Allies and Ustream.

Over the last few years, Dr. Dog has caught the attention of many for their dynamic songwriting, shimmering harmonies and irresistible pop sensibilities. From the praise in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, NPR, People Magazine and more, to the adoration from artists like Jack White, Beck, Jeff Tweedy, Kanye West and Lou Reed, and to selling out 1,500 capacity venues in major markets worldwide, what started in the basement of a farm house in Pennsylvania with a 4 track has developed into an inventive, magnificently realized, and absolutely irresistible band who shows no sign of slowing down.

Dr. Dog will be performing songs from their critically acclaimed Anti- Records debut "Shame, Shame." You can catch the band perform their single "Stranger" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! next Wednesday, April 28th.

Ex'pression College students and faculty will film the concert with a 5-camera video set-up and record it on a multi-track digital mixing console. "These are the opportunities our students want and need to compete in the entertainment market today," says Steve Di Nardo, Vice President of Marketing and Admissions at the school. "There's no better way to showcase the college's amazing facility than with one of today's best rock & roll bands," comments Sean O'Connell, CEO of Creative Allies.

Creative Allies and Ex'pression College are also hosting a contest for poster art inspired by Dr. Dog's new album. O'Connell mentions, "This is a great opportunity provided by one of America's top art schools for students and music fans to get involved in the design process." The winning designer will receive a $200 licensing fee plus tickets to an upcoming Dr. Dog show and an autographed copy of the album. Submissions are due by July 1st."
